    I have two free gift certificates if anyone is interested. I got them when I renewed my membership if interested PM me and I will send you the certificate numbers. I like the site and find it worth the money.

    I have a free membership and I love seeing some of the quilts that the feature. Other than that I could care less about the show. Not interested in the how to part or the chit chat.

    I am a paid member and enjoy watching the shows on my iPad. I think the information I got from one show by Sally Collins on Precision Piecing more than paid for my membership fee.

    I am a paid member, I got a year's subscription for 6 months price when they had a special. I find it very informative and have learned many things. Watch it on my laptop, Kindle Firehd, or iPhone. Dropped my Qnntv, I get much more from TQS. Being able to watch Ricky Timms Grand Finale DVD (over 2 hrs of teaching) as many times as I want for 3 months is worth the price. Bought the mag a couple times, but I am paring subscriptions down too so didn't get it. I put it on when I'm sewing sometimes especially when starching/pressing fabric and cutting. Worth it to me, but not for everyone.

    I agree the extra video lessons are worth the cost of the membership. Sally Collins lessons were the same as being in a class with her, I know I have taken her class. When I first joined I thought this wasn't worth it but then I really looked at what was available and how much work went into the site. It is an amazing quilting site. If Sharon Schamber shares her talent there, it will be amazing for members.
    Got fabric?

    Tracked down the Sharon Schamber mention here:

    And a note on the tone of the show - I would agree that the first couple of series were a bit....stilted as both Alex and Ricky became familiar with their new roles in that format -it was sometimes a bit too talk show-ish.
    They definitely listened to feedback, and changed many things by Series 3.
    Now I especially like the shows done outside the studio - in private homes and museums (playing to a studio audience constantly can be draining, and unnecessarily time consuming for the at-home viewer).
    And I'm sure it's a better deal for them as well, not having the expense of the studio.
    The whole concept is much more relaxed.

    And I seriously under-reported the extra classes available -
    Again, I'm not sure what all is behind the pay wall and what's available to Basic members.

    MTS: "As for sections of the site only available to paid members, seriously, do you think they went into this as a charitable venture? The sets and camera/sound crew etc all cost money to produce. Why shouldn't they charge for their product?"

    MTS, of course they should make a profit! This is their business. I just don't like seeing a great introduction and then finding out it's part of the no-no list for me. That really puts me off. I wish they'd have two of their programs, I guess, one for those of us who have only bought the magazine and one for those who want it all. Then I wouldn't feel so much like a second class citizen.

    I had paid membership for three months and I enjoyed it but I wasn't able to see as many shows as I wished to for the price. I may renew it in the future if I think it will be worth while.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    A few years ago The Quilt Show had a free day. I watched a lot of the episodes, but, I found that I wasn't that impressed enough to purchase a subscription. It's up to you, but, I thought the subscription was quite expensive.

    I'm a paid member too... I thought the lessons on Ricky's Rhapsody quilt was worth the cost of one years subscription. Until recently my internet bandwidth was too restricted to watch a full show (and also too slow). I recently upgraded so hope I will enjoy The Quilt Show even more. Ricky and Alex are two of my favorite quilting personalities so I could be prejudiced.
