    I do, indeed! Really, for the price they charge for some of these subscriptions vs the newsstand price, it’s no wonder they struggle. I find the newsstand pricing has made the magazines almost unaffordable, or at least a poor choice for print material value considering the cost of say a quilting book without the advertising.

    you would think, especially if they are still in the publishing business, otherwise I expect they don’t have the funds left to do that.

    If you are looking for modern, check out the QuiltCon mags--one per year (boohoo) showing the quilts from that years show and even some patterns. Plus I've recently bought a copy of Simply Moderne (from France)--pretty pricey so won't be getting it often--but a real treat. I do realize that online stuff is overwhelming print mags, but I really wish there was a long arm magazine. I cringe at the price of the mags in the stores, but when you think that there's maybe 2-3 quilts in each mag that you 'Might" make and the cost of patterns purchased separately are about $10/each, magazines aren't that costly when you subscribe..

    Sorry this happened to you. Thank you for mentioning it - I was also wondering why I hadn't seen it in awhile.

    While Simply Moderne may be expense, there are ten patterns in each issue. Also worth checking out is Make Modern magazine from Australia https://www.makemodern.com.au/ .

    I would have told them to give me a refund instead of taking a mag I didn't want. We used to purchase meat from Zaycon Fresh and when they closed they made off with lots of peoples money. My hub and I walked down the magazine/book aisle at Walmart this past weekend and I commented on how few books they have now. The last time I read a paper book was on our trip to Hawaii in December 2014. It is just to easy and much cheaper also to read books on the Kindle app on my cell. Walmart only had about 3 quilt mags on the shelf. I picked up one and it was $10. I commented that it's ridiculous to pay that much when there is so much info on the internet. Lots free or you can pay for individual things that interest you instead of buying a mag which is over half ads most of the time.

    Quiltmaker is my favorite quilting magazine. If you don't want to take a substitute, you can always ask them for a refund for any unsent issues.
