    Modern Patchwork Magazine Discontinued

    I finally took the plunge to subscribe to this magazine last fall at the NW Quilt Expo in Portland. I received one issue for November/December and as it is a 6/year subscription was wondering why I hadnít had another one since. I contacted the publisher to ask, and was advised it had been discontinued. I bought a 2 year subscription. So they have switched my subscription to Quiltmaker, which they also publish. Iím pretty disappointed and I canít say if Iíve ever seen a Quiltmaker magazine, but itís better than nothing I guess. Just thought Iíd mention this in case there is anyone else wondering where their Modern Patchwork magazine is .

    I wondered why I had not seen that magazine for months. I loved that magazine and got some great patterns from it.

    I got an email from the publisher of about 6 quilting type magazines. I'd like to hear Bonnie Hunter's inside info on this. I subscribe to Quiltmaker and Bonnie has a page in each issue. It looks like the whole thing is in trouble. I know I seldom buy a magazine at the grocery store, as I used to, and I am down to subscription of only one title. I used to get 3 and 4. But I am overloaded with magazines, patterns and things printed off in my 3 notebooks labeled Quilt Fun. Quilter's Newsletter bit the dust. I think the Internet has a lot to do with this. It's not climate change; it's the graying of the population. Look at the participants at one of Bonnie Hunter's workshops. I wonder what the average age is??

    Like Battle Axe I also got an email from the Quilting Company who publishes: Piecework, McCall's Quilting, Easy Quilts, Quick Quilts, Quiltmaker, Quilting Arts, and Love of Quilting magazines
    They voluntarily filed Chapter II and under the supervision of the courts will provide the same service to their customers while undergoing financial reconstruction, so basically told the recipients of the email to not worry.

    Thanks EmiliasNana for spelling out all that. I think that all published print is in trouble. The Internet has taken over. Yet, the olsters, including myself do not trust the electric gysmos. And they told us not to worry. I'm still printing off everything I see that I want to do.

    I agree about Quiltmaker. It's a good magazine and it used to be on my subscription list. I dropped the subscription and all other quilt mag subscriptions when I learned to use the internet.

    I got my first computer and entry to the web in 1996. I stopped subscribing to magazines in 1998
    Still, discouraging when you pay for something and don't get it!

    Sorry this happened to you. I used to get the Quiltmaker magazine and enjoyed it very much so hope you like it too. I just quit most of my subscription because anything I want is on the internet.

    I subscribed to Quilter's Newsletter Magazine and Quiltmaker for many years. Did not renew because I'm too old and will die before I make all of the quilts I want to make. Still have all of the issues of both magazines.

    I haven't subscribed to any quilt mags for years but it seems to me that if they go under you should get your money back for unsent issues?

    I have just been sent Quiltmaker which is radically different from Modern Patchwork. I do both traditional and modern quilt work and like to see both sides. I'm sad Modern Patchwork didn't make it.

    Consider yourself lucky Kwilter. About 6 years ago I subscribed to Quilt-It Magazine and Sew-it Magazine. After receiving one issue the company closed and I had just paid for a year for both magazines. No letter or refund or replacement magazine were offered and calls to them were not returned.

    I had only recently started my Modern Patchwork subscription--got 2 issues I think. Already was taking Quiltmaker (I particularly like that they give detailed ideas on quilting, include EQ8 ways you can change up many of the patterns and also usually have at least one that they give directions on using Accuquilt too) so when they dropped MP, I got the Quiltmaker extended--so if it makes it I'll be getting it forever almost.
    But I was disappointed as I'd recently dropped my McCalls, and was wanting a more modern quilt mag--now I'm getting American Patchwork (price just too darn low on an offer); Quiltmaker and Today's Quilting (one from the UK)
    Wish there was a good modern one and a good machine quilting one,too.

    I was very bummed out when Machine Quilting Unlimited was discontinued. That was a wonderful magazine.

    Thank you for your comments! Now I’m really looking forward to my Quiltmaker Magazine . I was also wanting a Modern Quilt focused magazine, hence my disappointment. However, there is a digital magazine I’ve been on the fence about subscribing to called Make Modern which I believe is out of Australia. I follow them on Instagram and am keeping an eye on their postings . I have a couple of digital magazines I purchased from other publishers, but I haven’t been able to print patterns that they have in them, which kind of frustrates me, so I’m still on the fence. I think I should just try buying one issue of Make Modern and assess. Maybe it’s something we’d both enjoy .
