    I emailed them asking If/When they'll be doing their magazine and this is the answer I got
    Dear Beverly,
    Unfortunately because of the economy and with so many quilting magazines going out of business. Quilt in a Day is choosing to wait to see what happens.
    Thank you for your interest and patronage, we appreciate it.

    Happy Quilting,
    Karyn

    That is so sad... So many places are going out of business these days I guess they want to make sure that it will be able to work rather than sink a lot of money into it and then not be able to make a go of it

    Several months ago and within a 30 day period I received notices from 3 magazine I have subscribed to for years that they were ceasing publication. One was a sewing magazine and the other two were home related. I am glad none were quilting magazine. I was hoping that the economy would stop some of this junk mail/catalogs I receive on a daily basis but it doesn't seem to have slowed down any. Dixie in Alabamas

    That is really sad. My son has subscribed to two sewing mags. and both have gone out of business. It's a sign of the times, but still so sad.

    that's so interesting. here, in the new york area, where you wouldn't expect to find many quilters, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a quilting magazine for sale. every supermarket, newstand, convenience store, etc. sells them. i always wonder who buys them? (i get mine in the mail).

    there's only one quilt guild anywhere near here and they don't have that many members.

    As an update to my earlier post I received a notification in today's mail that another magazine I subscribe to is ceasing publication. I have been receiving this magazine for about 18 months and believe it has only been on the market for a couple of years. I guess it will be survival of the fittest so-to-speak. Again, I hope our quilting magazines will not get the axe. Dixie in Alabama

    I quit many of the home type magazines because of nothing but ads and very little articles. With so many ads how did they not make money! Now most magazine are printed on cheap newsprint. I would rather spend my money of high speed internet then the poor quality magazines. Many of the magazines are going online and they are really nice with lots of extras.

    you just hit the nail on the head, i think. with cheap or even free patterns and articles on the web, maybe mags can't sell enough subscriptions to stay alive. that would be too bad. i like to hold a hard copy in color, on slick paper, with interesting ads, articles by famous quilters, etc. in my hand. i look forward to getting them in the mail, too. the price of progress, right?
    the web really is wiping out a lot of small things that we all take for granted and even though it's much more affordable, we lose the 'people' aspect of so much of our lives. how sad.

    It's sad for us that remember how things use to be. The younger generation has no memories of them to keep them going. I read that 9 out of 10 homes do not get a home delivered newspaper anymore.

    i hadn't thought about that, but you're right. i still do, but none of my friends do any more. no one buys books, buys music, etc. the computer has changed everyone's lives and i'm not sure it's really altogether better. it's enriching, yes. but it was supposed to add to your knowledge , not replace it. kids just look up what they need, instead of actually learning anything forever.

    my daughter, whose intelligence i admire, told me that this board is exactly how the computer was intended to be used: as a means of exchanging information and broadening perspectives. we are not using it instead of doing something, we use it as a means of learning to do something better than we might have.

    you really can't say that about too many many computer-related things any more. it's become that lazy answer to too many things.
