I ask becuase my last issue of Quilters Home came today and I noticed on one of the renewal cards they are still using his picture. I do not intend to renew because he is no longer associated with the magazine. Why are they still acting as if he is?

Have any of you renewed? I haven't read this issue yet but when they run out of articles that I am sure they in reserve it will not be the same.

Has anyone heard what he is up to?

I got mine today as well, and went through it cover to cover. It is missing something. Now I know what...Mark! I had no idea he was no longer part of the magazine. That is a shame; I really did enjoy this one.

I subscribed when it first started, but didn't renew. Too much fluff, and not enough patterns. Personally I don't care how quilt designers decorate their bedrooms!

I did the same. I enjoyed it at first, bc it was different, but I don't care about other people's private lifes. I never saw a quilt in the mag that I wanted to make. What happened to him, I forgot.

I had no idea Mark was no longer with Quilters Home. What's the schmaltz?

I didn't renew because part of the draw for the magazine, for me anyway, was his wit. It's not the same without him.

I just got the latest issue and whoever is writing the articles is trying too hard to imitate Mark. I thought he was funny and interesting (yea, sometimes over-the-top) but I always enjoyed his articles. I won't renew--they had three pages on quilt guild ID badges--BORING!!!! That's as far as I got (about page 10) and I used to read it cover to cover. I agree-I never liked any of the quilt patterns, but like they say about Playboy: I just got it for the articles LOL.

I got a free issue and new immediately is was not for me. It would be nice if all the magazines would give you a free issue to test the waters so speak.
