    My DH signed me up for just a few dollars. It doesn't cost much at all and they do have some good videos to watch.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I was offered a $10 membership a year ago and I signed up, but to renew it this year was $39.95. I thought that was to much so I cancelled it. The videos were okay but I can find free ones all over the internet that are just as good.

    Yes, I was just offered the same $10 deal and thought it might be worth $10 to see what they had. I found hat QNNTV was much like that...worth $12 but not $40 or whatever their regular price is. When you think of what you get for info from a magazine, for their price, $10 is quite reasonable for a year's content. Thank you for your input.

    I paid the $10.00 but feel all the videos can be seen on you tube. Would never pay the $39.00.

    I have never heard of it but for $10 for a year, I would check it out and find what information will work for you.

    I don't think $40 a year is that expensive if you enjoy the videos. Most all the subscription sites are about that price per year.

    I have so far enjoyed my membership and their informative videos but I will keep track how much I use it and what I feel I actually take from their videos when I consider my renewal in a year.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I joined too for the "introductory price". I'm not going to renew. There's far too much on the internet for free. I've only visited the site one or two times. I'll not renew.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    I joined for a low price membership. I find that I wouldn't renew my subscription. I don't think it was worth it. Ony my opinion

    I joined for $8 last November. It's okay but I probably won't be renewing. I get offers at another email addy all the time, some for even a little less that $8. $7.77 recently.

    Just looked at this website, and did not feel that it was worth the
    $40 a year.

    Not when I can get AQS for $25 per year PLUS get the American Quilter
    magazine included in the price.

    I found the same. I just joined for the $10 a few months ago & watched a few but McCall's has better videos for free. When they send a renewal I'll cancel regardless of the price.

    Well I got busy yesterday and forgot to sign up, so guess I'll wait til the next offer rolls around. Thank you all for your input. The AQS one sounds interesting. What did we ever do before the Internet???

    I almost signed up until I read the contract. It was confusing and hard to follow. I interpreted a lot of the clauses as having hidden charges and decided that it was not worth joining. If this is the same company that bought Quilters Club of America, McCalls Quilting, Love of Quilting, Quiltmaker and /Quilters Newsletter, I will not join. Customer service was terrible with QCA and once my membership expired, I did not renew.

    I could buy a yard and half of fabric for 20( roughly cost from UK) and more likely to use it than sit and watch videos.
    i think the cost is high but I can understand why it is to cover the cost of producing videos and other information. I just signed up for newsletter will read that.
