    A friend told me about receiving a notice from Love of Quilting that her subscription was due for renewal. She called Fons and Porter to tell them she still had 2 yrs left. Its not them doing this, and they aren't happy about what is happening. Its too bad Fons and Porter doesn't do something about this company. I'm ready to just buy at the store if I want a mag because I never know when I'm going to get one in the mail. LOL
    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids

    My husband has gotten some "renewal" notices on magazines that he still has 3 years to go on his current subscriptions. These notices are sent by magazine services that must take their commission out of getting you to send money early through them.. After seeing that Newsweek has gone to electronic issues only, I'd be leery of signing up for more than 2 years of ANY magazine. The time of using electronic tablets/readers is fast approaching!

    AHA!! I renewed my subscription to Love of Quilting in October for $32.97 for two years. In November I received a statement like you did, for the renewal of the magazine for $77.91 for one year or 155.82 for two. I just ignored it but kept the statement for some reason. How interesting!! We are also having a problem with another well known magazine. I get calls about our subscription all the time ttelling me it is time to renew. Right now we are receiving 2 a month of the same magazine. I refuse to talk to them and will just let the subscription lapse.

    Sounds like a scam to me after checking their website.

    You have to be careful....this "offer" sounds like it is not from the publisher but from a magazine subscription service. Watch out for them! They offer you a free or greatly reduced price because you bought some product, then they are pushing you to renew way before your subscription time is up, and at outrageous prices. We also got taken by some inner city youth program (allegedly) and they wanted a lot for a magazine. My husband said, okay he'd take one magazine to help out, but then they said, well, you have to subscribe to four magazines! Lots of scams out there. Buyer beware!
    Create with joy in your heart!

    This is definitely a scam. I've received several of these in the last few years and just simply tear them up and throw them away. NOT affiliated with Fons and Porter at all. DO NOT SEND THEM MONEY!

    I just saw on their tv program this past Sunday that they are aware of this and it is definitely a scam.

    I have dropped all my subscriptions to quilt magazines. They push special fabric lines and I don't see much new that I feel is worth the price. There are a LOT of free patterns on the internet and all it costs is your time. I have patterns from years back so why spend money for more?? I think they are overly expensive compared to other magazines and they pile up and you have to do something to keep them in check, either donate them or throw them away.

    I have gotten renewal notices for several of my magazines with ridiculous prices. I ignore them because I am pretty sure they are from a scam company. Just contact Love of Quilting and renew at their website.

    My renewal is 18.95 for the first subscription and 10.00 for all the gift subscriptions, and they will send a CD of all the 2011 issues to each of the subscriptions as a gift.

    You have to watch the return address and who to pay, their are a lot of scams out there. This one goes to Love of Quilting in Palm Coast FL, this is the right address.

    Seems a bit much. Anyone notice this about Love of Quilting? They are always sealed in a plastic bag at the newsstand so you can't pick it up and leaf through it to see if you want to buy it. So I don't - it really steams me!

    wow, you are lucky to have them on tv....not here anymore, or at least I can't find it.......(Illinois)
    RE: subscriptions/mags....I have discontinued all of my subs.....I look at the local Walmart monthly at the offerings there, and if something really "hits" me I will buy the mag....It seems they are all the same, just different fabs and lots of ads!!!!!

    I sure wish the American magazines would expand their horizons. They all seem to be the same old, same old. I'd LOVE to see them start featuring more of the styles and ideas coming out of Australia and Japan.
    My in laws bought me 1 yr one time, Australian P&Q, indeed it is very nice. I was also able to buy some from a person on this board.

    Like quiltmom04 I detest the mags. sealed in plastic bags. I stopped all subscriptions to save money, and space. I now go to my local public library one afternoon a month to read my favorite ones for FREE. I can also check out issues for a week if there is something I really like. Most of the stuff in American magazines is about as interesting as oatmeal anyway. For a treat sometimes I buy the Australian issues, at Joannes where they are 10% off. I leaf through the mag. at the store and only buy if there is something in it I am really interested in.

    That is way too pricey for me.... If I really want a pattern from a magazine I just head on over to Ebay and check out those. Heck, 99cents and there are hundreds of them. I have a notebook full, and I have the ones I want.

    I just got a renewsal notice. It is $20.97 /1yr and $32.97/2 yrs. I am not going to renew since I did not find many w quilts that I wanted to make. I am not a great sibscriber to mags so I prefer to buy a seperate pattern or look for "free" on the internet.

    I got one of those and I ignored and a month later I got a did not pay notice that was DOUBLE. Thought about calling the the number to ask what the heck was going on. IT HAS TO BE A SCAM! You'lll notice that its a subscription service of some kind. Wonder if Fons and Porter knows about this? Don't have the papers any more. Wish I did so I could give F&P a call to let them know.
