    Jenny Doan's new magazine Quilting Quickly.

    Am I the only one who didn't know that Fon's and Porter have a magazine by Jennie Doan called Quilting Quickly and it came out January 1, 2013? I just now found out. I am so excited. I ordered the digital and the real magazine. I think it said it is 4 times a year. Is that right? She is my favorite quilting person. I just love her personality and her methods and how she says "Isn't this just the cutest ..." to everything she's working on. I call the shop all the time because I order from Missouri Star Quilt Co. and always hope that she will accidentally answer the call. No luck yet. Dang! I think I will save up and make a trip to her store (make sure she will be there) just to see her in person. I feel like she is a good friend and someone I can trust. Anyone else love her this much? Anyone else not know about her magazine, which is going to be awesome??!!??

    I, too, love her that much and her often used comment, "Isn't this just the cutest ..." and I also did not know about the new magazine. It's only 5:15 am here and the stores aren't open yet!!!! so I will order it online and then I can relax knowing I have a copy heading my way.

    I found this link
    http://www.fonsandporter.com/issues/...y_Spring_2013#

    I will be subscribing to this one, I love her videos.
    Th
    Thanks for letting me know, i had not heard of this new magazine.

    Add on: I tried to subscribe, it seems that I could only order this issue either in print or digital. I will look at Joann's when I am there today before I order on line.

    I just bought this magazine after someone else on the QB mentioned it the other day. I love it, it shows directions for some of the most popular quilts she has done videos for on YouTube. I can look at the videos, as I often do, and then follow with the directions from the mag. Great idea. I love her to and would love to go to their store and meet her.

    I didn't know about the magazine either, so I'll look for it. Along with "isn't this just the cutest" I also like "this is so adorable" - those phrases encourage me to make a quilt just like the one she's working on.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I wonder if I can use a Joann's coupon and get a copy? I like buying a single copy of a magazine before subscribing that way I will know if I like it and no pressure. I know there are specials where you can get the first one free then decide but sometimes it's difficult to cancel.

    I ordered one last week. I should be here soon. I really like Jenny's teaching style. I think it is just a special issue featuring Jenny. The other Quilting Quickly issues will have other designers. That is how I understood the description of the magazine.

    You can use a Joanns coupon unless they already have their magazines on sale at 10% off. That is what I saw at my local Joanns over the weekend. I wait until I can use a 40 -50% off coupon instead.

    I bought it today at Joann's. It was 8.99, since all magazines are always 10% off, no coupons allowed. But my VIP card took another 10% off. You too can get a VIP card if you belong to a guild and make donation quilts.

    Which is all the time, so good luck trying to use that coupon! Plus, they've reset the store so you can't browse the magazines.

    Barnes & Noble has 40% coupons often, so I print those out and spend a happy hour or two browsing their magazines before deciding which one to buy. They have a bigger selection than Joann's does anyway.

    At the JoAnn's closest to me, you can use a coupon if you take the % off the regular price and not the sale price. If the coupon is 40% off and the item is on sale for 10% off then I use the 40% off coupon taken off the regular price. Hobby Lobby does this so JoAnn's started doing it here too. All Joann's should do the same thing. Some managers aren't afraid to do what they can to keep customers and keep profit up, some say Oh I'm not allowed to do that.

    This is the way it SHOULD be done, and the way most retailers work. But the Joann's in my town refuses to do this. So I refuse to shop there.

    YMMV, etc.

    I bought one at Joann's, could not use a coupon as they had discounted it 10%. The magazine is great, has an interesting story about how MSQC got started.

    It's difficult for me to get out and Kroger may not have it anyway so I just bought and downloaded the digital edition from F&P. I really like these digital mags! I have a sub to Quilter's World and love it. You can print out pages you want, patterns etc. and sometimes I load it on my laptop to sit and view it in the living room! I just looked through the pdf and there's a great article about MQC and the family.

    My Joanns won't trade either on the amount off if it is already marked down. I have to take the ten percent..so I usually don't. I wait.

    Well, Joann's did not have it. Will check out Barnes and Noble and see if they have it. Hmm, I have a nook, so may see if I can buy just a single digital edition?

    I bought the magazine yesterday at JoAnn and I love it. Interestingly enough, I was entertaining myself while I ironed yesterday by watching quilting tutorials and came across at least a couple of tutorials on the projects in this magazine. Made the quilts just come alive and makes the construction look so simple. Just love the big star quilt.

    since I finished my laundry yesterday and it is raining here, I plan to sew ALL day. . Hope everyone has a great day!

    Thanks for the "heads up". I didn't know about the new mag - just ordered it!

    I have met Jenny Doan and she is very very nice.....and tall. Didn't expect her to be as tall as she is. She wore a bright red wig when we all gathered to go on a bus tour last year at her shop. I did not know about her magazine but put the words "Quilting Quickly" in Google and after scrolling down to those exact words, I was able to order it for $12.98 total. I only ordered one magazine, I didn't see a subscription anywhere, guess I need to check it out.

    Will look for this magazine when I am out, have not been picking up many magazines lately, I go through times when I pick up a few, then go several months before they catch my attention. Now will find this one! Thanks for sharing this bit of news.
