    Is anyone here a member of Quilters Club of America and, if so, is it worth the fee? Just curious. I get so much great information and help here I just don't that I need to spend money that I would rather use for fabric!! Thanks.

    Well, is does seem that the information found on this website and the willingness of everyone to help each other outweighs any benefits of joining. Thanks for your input.

    I have been a member for 2 years and after this year will not renew. I get much more and better information from this wonderful board. Also have trouble with the videos and other things on their site.

    I have belonged for two years but never use their tutorials. I enjoy the magazine but a bit pricey for what I am getting. I won't renew.

    I am so thankful for this board. I am encouraged to hear your thoughts and comments and am glad I'm on the same track with you. I think I'll keep my money and spend more time on this board. Thanks so much for your input.

    The only real benefit I found was the 10% discount at JoAnn's but since I have vowed to NOT buy so much fabric, I rarely even use that. Just renewed but won't do so again. In fact, I just realized I DIDN'T get my new discount card!!! I better contact them as the old one expires the end of this month.
    This board is the best thing EVER!

    I think just paying the fee for the Quilters TV site is the better deal.

    I joined and enjoy the site. However, their video screens are too small. They can be enlarged but then they tend to get fuzzy. The other thing I don't like is that they have a lot of videos on demand but a lot of it is recycled shows from regular TV (old) and others--well once you've viewed them, you're done.
    I do like that you get membership in QNNTv and Fons & Porter from that site and so there are other goodies as well.

    I joined for the Joann Fabric 10%. For me it has been worth it.

    I joined the first year and didn't renew. I like others said gained more info and knowledge right here :D:D:D
    Also, with all of the free tutorials on the net I see no reason to pay them the high fee for their's :wink:

    I joined several years ago-it's worth it for me for the Joann 10% discount. Also, QNN.TV is free when you're a member. So for me it's been worth it.

    I belonged for two years and did not renew this year. I can find better ways to spend my money.

    One of the benefits is a 10% discount card at Joann's. I'm pretty sure it is applied even on sale stuff (although perhaps not in addition to another coupon). Can anybody verify this? Since I never have coupons, and I no doubt spend over $450 a year at Joann's, the discount could pay for my membership.

    I joined when it first started. It was a bust for me. The free patterns were the free ones from the fabric manufactures. The Dashboard on the website was never updated. I continue to pay for Quilter's TV website but not Quilter's Club. The free gifts were a demo cd which I could get free from Inklingo from their website, a cd of quilting tips right from the magazine, and I did get six issues of Easy Quilts during the year.
