    Our local library has a great number of books. They also receive 4 quilt magazines. Current issues cannot be checked out but when the next issue comes in the older ones can be checked out to take home.

    Excellent! I think your library has more subscriptions than mine does! My library has the same policy about not lending current issues, however they will allow you to photocopy a pattern out of the current issue. You get 2 free copies and the rest you pay for.

    I like Quilter's Newletter magazine. Check your library for a variety or as suggested if you visit Barnes and Noble you can preview several to see if one appeals more than others.

    I bought a lot of "used" magazines off sites from people who no longer wanted them. It was a super, inexpensive way to find out which magazines were the best for my needs. There are a lot of good ones out there but seems they are getting less to them all the time. Some of them are about half the size of older issues. New mags. are expensive for me and it doesn't matter if the mags. are this years or 5 years old for they all have articles and patterns in therm. I wish you were closer to me for I would gladly give you a bunch that I am through with....I just don't want the bother of packaging them up for sending. You might want to take a day and go to one of your book stores such as Barnes and Noble and thumb through the quilt magazines to get an idea of which would fill your needs.

    I look online but there are also a couple sites. Elenor Burns (hopefully I spelled that right) has some tutorials on her site. Alex Andersen also has some. One of the greatest and easiest patterns for beginners is yellow brick road by Atkinson designs. Worth the money usually $7-8. Thought it might help...I have a lot of mags from my beginning days too. I learned, glance thru and make sure you actually want to make one of the quilts in the mag. So much online. One of the best books I do own is All about Quilting put out by joanns..goes for $25 but use a coupon and its a steal! Has all information and inspiration in that one!! Good luck!!

    I just saw an ad in "Craig's List" in the "Wanted" section, and it said: "Wanted. Any old Quilting Magazines you no longer want. I can pick up."

    Being of a curious nature, I picked up the phone and called the gal and asked how it was going (she had kept the listing on Craig's list for a week). She laughed and said she should have pulled the listing days ago! She was overwhelmed, and it would take her at least a year to get through all the magazines. One lady had 11 boxes of old magazines, some dating back as far as the 1950's, and was delighted someone wanted them. Overall, she had a garage stall piled high with boxes of quilting magazines, and is now wondering where they could best be put to use when she is done with them. We had a delightful conversation!

    So if you want older edition quilting magazines, they're out there. All you have to do is ask for them.
