I have a couple of hundred magazines that I have accumulated but need to get rid of. I'm going to organize them and start a list and post the list on the board. I think I'll give them away for the cost of the postage to send.
Stay tuned. This may take awhile.

The cost of most magazines has become prohibitive. I have a "library" of designs, but still would enjoy many subscriptions but just don't feel they are worth the price. I do check out patterns on-line. What a wealth of info can be found here.

I had hundreds of them that were collector's item, that ended when my house burned down in 1997 along with fabric,patterns and books. I had stashed a few in a cedar chest which did not burn. I now buy McCall's or find them at yard sales. I stopped subscribe because I had a job that would not let me quilt anymore.

I subscribe to QUILTMAKER and QUICK QUILTS! I like them because they always have quilts that have turned out well when I have made them. Their directions are clear and concise, to the point and well illustrated.

Quilt Magazine and American Patchwork & Quilting. I just get the 2 because they are getting so expensive

I subscribe to a few .. and when I find patterns or info I would like to keep ... I remove the pages and put them in sheet protectors and in a binder... dividing them up according to what they are... like for special occasions or runners or baby.. whatever...

I love "The Quilter" magazine. It always has at least 2-3 patterns that I can use.
