About 4-6 wks ago I received a DVD I did not order, from McCalls Quilting. ( I subscribe to the mag) They sent it with a "special opportunity to preview" I was going to send it back, I dont want it, didnt order it etc. Now I have a bill for it which says that in 2-3 months they will send more DVDs for a cost of the disc and S&H. I cant find the DVD now, I didn't even watch it, was intending to send it back since I didn't order it...Has anyone else on this board had this sent to them as well? I want to quilt today, not tear my craft room apart looking for this darn thing. I may have to send in the 12.95 for something that I didn't order if I cant find it........

No I haven't received anything from them, but if you can't find it you might be able to get out of paying for it by writing on bill " Did not order... will not pay for " and return the bill to them.

And if you decide to pay for it write cancel in red on the invoice when you send it back to stop any future mailings .

I bought the latest edition of McCall Quilting Magazine on the newstand and it had a CD included (it played on Media Player). I would contact the company and ask them about it.

The one you have should be free. As for future ones, that may be a different story.

On my CD is their web address. mccallsquilting.com I would try and contact them.

Good luck!

I would not worry about the one you got. They can not bill you because you never ordered it. Just make sure you return the ones you receive in the future. Try to find a phone number or web site to make sure they got them and stop sending them.

I once ordered some books for my son and they kept coming every month. When the price got too high I started returning them but send me a bill for them. When I called they claimed they never received them. I not is not true. After a long argument that lasted several weeks I was credited and didn't have to pay for them but it was very aggravating.

If you didn't order it/request it, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. I received the same DVD, then several days ago received a "bill" asking me to pay or send the DVD back. I just threw it away. I didn't agree to anything, so I'm not going to be bothered with it. I think it's just a trick to try and get people to send in money. Toss it and don't feel guilty about it.

I got that DVD too, I thought the part about english paper piecing was pretty informative; I mostly liked it because every one demonstrating look and act like themselves, the guy is the owner of ' make it sew' ( he's a Trecky) Quilting machine store in Broomfield Co. The insert says you can keep it with no obligation, so I am; just an FYI.. if you plan on keeping it, call them & tell them you're keeping it and not interested ( if thast's the case) the insert doesn't give you an option to answer this way... and they'll keep sending you reply cards untill they hear from you.. bad design.... They were very nice on the phone.

I got it unsolicited, just like you, watched it, reviewed it extensively on my blog, and packed it up to return. I found the envelope on my sewing room floor last night as I was tidying up, and (hopefully) DH stuck it in the mail slot so it goes out today.

They cannot force you to pay for something you didn't request. How can they prove you recieved it or that you didn't return it and it got lost in the mail? There was a record company, the Musical Heritage Society, that tried to force people to pay for unsolicited copies of Pachelbel's Canon in C, and this made it to the courts and they lost.

The DVD wasn't bad, but it's not worth 13 bucks to me.

I got the same DVD and sent it back. I got a bill from McCall Quilting I called them and told them I sent the DVD back. I had no problem with them. I really liked the DVD but who can afford 28.95 per DVD?
