    Quilters Club of America?

    A few months ago, I subscribed to Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. This week I received an "invitation" to join Quilters Club of America for $29.95 per year.

    Who is familiar with this "club" and is it worth the membership? It looks like it includes a subscription to Easy Quilts and access to QNN (a TV channel?), among other things.

    Would love to hear from others as to the benefits (or lack thereof) of joining before I commit. Thanks.

    It's nice. I don't watch the online shows (QNN) as much as I'd like, but I do like the Easy Quilts and the 10% discount JoAnns card (they started an agreement with JoAnns, but now my guild also qualifies). They have links to free patterns and other blogs.

    I've been a member for a year and plan to renew. I've won fabric from their contests. For me its paid for itself.

    I watched QNN when it was free. They have alot of videos so it is worth it if you have the time to watch.
    Im retired so watched alot of videos but only paid for one year then decided that theres not enough new videos to pay for them.
    It is worth it for newbees that need the training. But Quilterstv is free so watch them there instead.

    I just signed up for free membership. Why don't you try that before you commit.

    I just started quilting this year, and I did join QCA. I enjoy the Easy Quilts magazines, and the money I have saved at Joann's with the 10% coupon has paid for my membership already. I've also saved 10% on orders from Keepsake Quilting, and sometimes free shipping from there because of my QCA membership. I don't watch as many shows on QNN as I did in the beginning; but it's nice to know they are there for when I want to or have the time to watch. I also like all the links for the free patterns. So to me; it was worth it.

    I have been a QCA member for several years now, and I LOVE
    it!!

    I am also a member of the AQS (American Quilters Society),
    but I plan to drop that when my membership expires in Feb 2014.

    Love the magazines I get, plus all the other perks to being a member.
    Louise - I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world . Also collect homemade pincushions, and sewing/quilting themed fabrics.
