Thread: I just joined QNNtv for $12 for one year!

    I just joined QNNtv for $12 for one year!

    Just got an email from Fons and Porter about using coupon code FALL12 to get the discount. I'm sure that's meant for everyone - if not, Moderators feel free to delete this.

    One very nice feature that I noticed is it has Fons and Porter videos up through 1700 series.

    Has anyone else signed up recently? Is there any features that you like? Maybe you have noticed something I or others haven't.

    I'm looking forward to watching some videos when I want to watch them. We like watching Dr. Who so I guess we can't get rid of cable yet - but at $70 a month it's getting a bit expensive for all that unimaginative content they have been showing lately!

    Did you know Eleanor Burns has all her shows on her website for free? I know not everyone is an Eleanor Burns fan though.

    Thanks for the post! I was just looking at them this morning. My next project is going to be an applique, which I've never done before. I checked Craftsy, but they don't offer a class in that. (An opportunity for anyone who's an applique expert!) QNNTV had a preview video, and then I went to their website and saw that it was $24 per year to join, and I wasn't sure whether it would be worth that, as it's not a guided class like Craftsy. But $12 per year... seems worth the risk! I can watch their videos while finishing up the quilt I'm working on.

    I've been a member since it first went online. It's $2 a month. How can it not be worth that?
    Got fabric?

    I was one of the first members, too. Has the quality of the video improved since then? It was so horrible, I wasted my money that first year and never went back. I would do it again if the videos were any good.

    Stephanie - I wanted to join when they first started. I tried it when it was still free. I had the same experience you did. But it's a lot nicer now. They have a free video area - why don't you try watching a video and see how it goes. That's what I did before joining this time. They hav Sewing with Nancy and also the Fons and Porter Love of Quilting series. Also sewing/quilting with Sue. And several others. I know what I'm doing next week!

    Thanks AlienQuilter and Stitchripper. I think I'll check out the QNNtv site. I've been to Eleanor Burns site but didn't realize the videos were there. Will have to check on them too.

    A couple of months ago I also that that deal and I joined too.
    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.

    Thank you for providing the coupon code. I just successfully joined by using it.

    I never sign up for automatic renewal. Things sneak up on you that way. Just me.

    Be careful - they automatically signed me up for a $24 per year renewal but was able to keep the one year and cancel the renewal. Don't like to have things done that way

    Five years ago no video looked that great on line. Computers and video equipment used now show the online videos perfectly. If the video quality on your computer is bad these days, it's time for a new computer.

    You either check or uncheck the auto renew in your account info to decide how and if you want to renew. I'm notified about two months before membership expires if I want auto renew.

    Thanks! I was wondering about that. Since we pay with PayPal we have to make sure money is in there to pay with.

    I gladly signed up as $1/mo. is nothing. But the website is VERY slow in loading or when clicking on anything. Like old dial-up service. This concerns me.....can be aggravating.

    I was just over there and no trouble loading up Quilt Out Loud video. But, am using a brand new laptop which is 8 times faster than the old laptop - that might have something to do with it.

    Todays the last day for this special!
