    When I subscribe to internet items like this, I use a separate email account for each one... if I decide it isn't for me, or I start getting spam, I can ignore that account and it has no effect on my main account :D:D:D

    Yahoo, hotmail and other sites offer free email accounts :wink:

    I's been getting it for a while with no problems. I do have good virus protection on my computer. The magazine has some good quilter's tips. You can unsubscribe any time you want.

    I don't remember getting any free gifts like they are offering now. I get an e-mail beginning of each month with a link to the current newsletter.

    Thanks for the link, I just singed up and received my first issue and the free gifts. Looks like it's going to be good, and a nice price (free) fits in my budget.

    if its free what are you worrying about? if it's free you should not be giving out any personal information-
    i read-subscribe to a couple quilt magazines on line- no personal information- no safety issues to think about

    I just signed up for it, too. Hopefully, it isn't going to cause problems, but since Donnajean and MommaMac have it with no problems, it should be ok.

    I like it a lot. I am sure it is paid for by ads but that is okay with me. Some nice articles have come out of it.

    I just got my first issue about 10 minutes after signing up. It looks fine-plus got a free pattern and "67 tips for quilters". I decided to print mine out because I like a printed copy-although it can be downloaded and saved for future. Now, if I can figure how to print on both sides of the paper in order like a magazine, it will save lots of paper. The issue was 36 pages, plus the pattern and tips, which I also printed out. So far, so good!

    Another leery person, like myself.I don't usually subscribe to things but this has been a nice magazine to get a little information about quilting and it is free except there are ads and what magazine can a person get that is FREE of ads. It is rare to get something for free but this little magazine has been the rare exception. Of course no one should subscribe to anything that they feel uncomfortable with free or not..Should add, there are free things for quilters, on line....for instance all the wonderful patterns which is supported by advertisers.

    I've been subscribing to this for quite a while, and have never had any problems. Some really good tips in this one. Usual rules apply about downloads from the internet.

    That was quick. Thanks for the info. If I don't watch out. I will be so busy reading all the quilt info and won't get any sewing done.

    I have been getting it for over a year with no problems.

    However, a new McAfee download has produced numerous warnings while attempting to view photos on this site. I also get warnings when attempting to view the BHG craft site.

    I get it, I read it and enjoy almost all of it. I've never had any problems come from it (no virus, no spam, nothing) since my income is so very limited I look for safe things like this.
