    I have a choice of three quilting magazines from a home arts club I belong to in place of a scrapbooking magazine they had been sending. Long story. Which one of these magazines are best for not only tips, quilting news and patterns but also offer maybe full size patterns or templates. I guess what im asking is which is the better magazine for a begginer to learn from?

    Sorry Duh!
    McCalls Quilting magazine
    Quilter Home
    Quiltmaker magazine

    I agree, McCall's is the better of the 3. The other two sometimes have complicated and complex items, just looking at them could cause major frustration issues. You can't go wrong with McCall's.

    I am also a subscriber to the same home arts magazine. I was bummed when we received notice of it changing!!! But I was so excited when they said we could switch it to a quilting magazine instead of the scrapbooking one. I chose McCall's. I seem to be drawn to them when I see them on the newstands. If you have any magazines at home go through and maybe see what you have purchased more of or go to the store and see which one appeals to you when you flip through it.

    I subscribe to none of these but from what I've seen of them McCall's is your best choice.

    I finally heard from Shawn after a few well worded topics on the forum. This is the first time since they change magazines that I have been offered an alternative to the scrapbooking magazine, and I did send an email. I was told the magazine or I could quit and be out my lifetime membership. Have you received you choice of magazine yet or are you still waiting? I saw one lady had posted she asked for a paper crafts magazine and has yet to receive a copy of it after 2 months.
