    Are any of you members? Is it worth $30 annual membership?

    What do you like?

    What don't you like?

    I'm really torn and having a tough time deciding.

    Thanks

    I tried it, you get discounts at Joanns and I am pretty sure keepsake quilting. It's ok. Probably will not redo my membership as I enjoy this site more.

    I joined and never found any part of it that I wanted to use so I did not rejoin. This site helps me more than any other I have found!

    I joined earlier this year prior to my Paducah trip. I had previously purchased a bunch of old AQS magazines at a quilt show really cheap, loved the magazine and figure the mag plus the discount entrance to Paducah was worth it. I didn't read well enough and found out the mag is only printed 4x a year. Major bummer. I haven't used any of the discounts .. frankly didn't know there were any at Joanne's or Keepsake. I only buy notions at Joanne's - but I DO buy notions at Joanne's, and I place occasional orders with Keepsake. I'll have to look at the benefits again next year before I renew.

    I really do like the magazine. I buy quilting mag's not for patterns, but for new techniques and inspiration. So AQS and Quilting Arts are my two fav's.

    I am a member but haven't decided about renewing. Haven't really used it that much and the discount is only 10% at JoAnn's and has some stipulations attached.

    I joined recently. The ad said I would receive $700.00 worth of quilting supplies. The only thing you receive is a $10.00 subscription to Fons& Porter's easy quilts, and a 10% off discount card for JoAnns, and offers for dicounted other things. I live 200 miles from Jo Anns and am too poor to order all the 40% off things, so I find it a rip off for me.

    I was a member for a couple of years. I lived close to a Joann's so used the discount card and the coupons to get 50% off an item that was not on sale. Now that I live more than 100 miles from a Joann's the discount is useless because you can only use it in the store so I did not renew. I did find several free quilt patterns to download that made it worthwhile as well as getting the magazine for free. I rarely used the video features but they are a good source of information also. If you divide the membership cost by the number of months in a year it is a good value for someone who takes advantage of ALL it has to offer.

    I have subscribed to it for the last 3 years but find now that with the economy the way it is, I shall not renew my membership. The 10 pecent discount from Joanns helped a lot, but I now have this site to rely on for ideas, fabrics, and so much more that I do not see going back to Joanns enough to make it worth while. Magazines are okay but only glance through them and then toss them aside.

    I'm glad someone started this one as well because I was thinking about it along with the Pams which I think is based in Australia. My LQS they have 15% off fabrics and a frequent buyer card that afer it's full you can use it to take $25 off anything in the store. I find there's lots of sites out there that have free pattern downloads so I go to those quite a bit and then whatever info and material I find on this board.

    If you like to watch past episodes of quilting shows, there are a lot choices. However; I have a hard time watching videos on a computer screen. I want my big screen TV when watching shows.

    I joined the first year, and didn't renew. There are so many free you tubes, free shows, free patterns on the net that I seldom found anything there that wasn't already available for free. :D:D:D

    AQS and Quilter's Club of America are not the same. I belong to AQS, and like it. The Quilter's Club of America is somehow related to Fons & Porter....it used to cost a lot more to join, and I never did because of the cost. Even at $30, I still probably won't. There are so many sites with free information, patterns, etc. I can't see the benefit.
