Does anyone know about the Quilter's News Network (QNN). I had been enjoying their free quilt videos for about 2 weeks and all of a sudden I went there and now there is a $24 fee to watch the videos. I guess nothing stays free for long.
Are there any other sites like this? Quilting videos always give me lots of inspiration. Soon Quilter 1234

Just like every thing else, it got really popular so it is to be a new money maker. As far as I'm concerned there are other videos on that are more than ads and sales pitches. :evil:

ok try these videos...pick what you want to see 1200 of them enjoy :D

I have been watching QNN for a year and it was wonderful. Today I paid my $24 and found lots of videos to watch but none worked so they have a problem that needs to be fixed. It is worth the cost as you get so many videos. I like Eleanor Burns and it has a list with all her shows.
All of Fons and Porter and lots more.

Ruth
Thanks sooo much for that web site. It's a keeper. How sad but true, because of the times we live in, It was really nice to go to QNN and get various instructions, but we don't live in a society that encourages kindness, or helping your neighbor, or sharing anymore. It is ALL about money. If it can turn a profit then no one will share. SORRY but if you have to pay for it, it's not sharing. Wasn't quilting started and created out of necessity? And sharing? I'd like to think that it was. As they say, We've come along way baby, But it's sad to say, not in a postive way. I think that one of the reasons this site is sooo popular and has grown by leaps and bounds. It's all about sharing. Yes: I do pratice what I preach.

Ruth, Thank you so much for the site. I would rather spend my money on fabric than videos, but I must admit I do love to watch them.
Glad Alex Anderson is back on HGTV.
Thank you for the site. Quilter 1234

Reva,

Alex Anderson is on HGTV at 8am EST. That's 5am for me! Just figure out the time by your time zone.


Here's the link to their program guide.
