    Just read through the Feb/Mar Quilter's Home Magazine and it was half home-dec, recipes, and the rest - not very interesting articles. Anyone else disappointed?

    I have dropped all my quilting magazine subs because of that very reason. Too much advertising, too many non-relevant articles and not that many quilt patterns I want to try.

    I couldn't even finish mine. They try to copy Mark's style, but that is not possible. Some of the articles were informative, but not fun to read withour his touch.

    I think there is so much you can find on the internet now on information on quilting, that you really dont need a magazine. I have thought about getting some but looked through them at the store and they didnt seem to have much in them that was usefull!

    Ive been dropping all my mags mostly because it is to hard to find patterns later on. I love looking thru them when I first get them but after that they are useless.

    I have an online subscription to Quilter's World. 15.00 for 6 issue plus access to two years of back issues... Gotta love that. I download the issues and print a project when I am ready to start it.

    I leaf through quilting magazines at the grocery store, drug store and Wal-MArt. If something really looks different and I think I'd like to do one of the projects I buy the magazine. I keep a list like this in my quilting note book:

    MAGAZINE / ISSUE / PAGE/ NAME of Project/ MY IDEAS

    SO when I am ready for a project I don't have to spend hours looking through magazines.

    I am NOT very organized but this is my favorite way of dealing with magazines!

    I love going to the public library to look at the new quilting magazines. If I really like a project or an article in it, then I will go buy that issue. If not, then I was still able to enjoy the magazine and at the same time, saved money! I can also check out older issues of quilting magazines to take home. The newest issues have to stay at the library until the next issue comes out.

    I agree with all of your responses. I was going to drop the magazine anyway, and this issue confirms that decision. I have stopped 2 magazines, still keep Fons and Porter and McCalls, and Quilter's World, but find fewer patterns and techniques that interest me. Nice to keep up on the new gadgets that are advertised. Mammagus, I like your idea notebook idea because it's so hard to find a pattern in an old magazine!! I didn't know about the online subscription, would save a lot of shelf space! Our library has old pattern books, but no current quilt magazines. The internet has a lot available, hope that continues in spite of the new subscription only quilt sites.
    Good quilting to all!
