    I was able to get my copy at JoAnn's using one of those 40% off coupons. If you don't get the newspaper with their weekly ad and coupon, there's a coupon on line at their site.

    I just picked up the second new one, Summer edition and haven't read it yet thought I'm excited that they are publishing it four times a year!

    Jenny didn't even know she was on air when her son told her she was on air. She was taking questions from her Facebook page. Really impromto. But she said she was working on the issue that comes out in March! But I see it is the Summer issue. She said if you order from MSQC, she'll autograph it. I guess she's going to be the main attraction of this 'Quilting Quickly' magazine. She has those 'Quilting Quickly' classes on Craftsy.com also. I am going to keep buying them. I bought the digital and the hard copy both. I couldn't wait to go to town to get a copy.

    I did not know she has classes on crafty.........does one have to pay for them? What does she offer on these classes? I will have to see. I am surprised the Summer issue is out already, is it the same price as initial one-9.99?

    fons and porter were 2 nice women who quilted well. now they are a corporation and everything is dollar signs to them. their commercialism bothers me. their name is on things they have no part in, like notions made cheaply, sold for a big profit, by dritz. they are just too big for their britches, to say it bluntly.

    I guess that I, too, am blunt and feel that your comment mirrors my opinion. I hope that Jenny and MSQ don't get taken in by this poor judgement by F/P . I don't understand the on line cost being the same as the print version since I am paying for the paper and ink which is very expensive to print a whole magazine. I would rather buy a good hard cover or spiral bound book for the money involved....no advertisement either. On RARE occasions, I will buy a "used" magazine at my quilt guild and find that adequate. How many of the patterns are really new and not just new adaptations of the same old pattern. New fabrics seem to me to be what makes the quilts so appealing. Pay to read those ads...NOT. That is why I don't take Readers Digest anymore...too many ads. If I have to put up with all the ads and pull out cards in a magazine then it should be a very, very low cost magazine...the ads pay for the magazine. In fact, I receive several (not quilting but very good magazines) that are actually free and well done on high quality paper with great photos and reliable information. Some have ads but they are grouped in the back and are tastefully done. Seems like some of these big mags could learn from those magazines.

It will be interesting watching the future developments of Fons/Porter or should we say Fons/Fons.......
    I agree..unfortunately I can not watch the show anymore because of the daughter..drives me nuts the way she shakes her head all the time. i know its petty..but it is not the same to me when liz retired and to me its the daughter. Thats just me.

    Picked up the second edition and think it will be my last. Really had nothing that appealed to me and cost is too much.

    Also notoced that the videos are now on Fonsandporter.com. Is paying for the videose far behind!? Hope not.

    I have looked all over for the magazine and I have not found it. Where did some of you purchase the magazine?

    Smile Availability of Quilting Quickly Magazine

    For those of you who are having trouble finding this great magazine in your quilt shops.......it is available in digital download also. The newest issue (Summer) is already offered digitally. The quilts featured are indeed quick, giving instant satisfaction, and fun to do. Love, love, love it.

    I have never been able to use a coupon for a magazine at JoAnn's. They said something about mags being from a different vendor. Michael's also sings that same song.

    I agree with whomever said why the same price for digital as hard copy of mag? If you have a digital copy can you print it out? Just wondering as I have never done one. If not, what happens if your electronic gizmo fails....all is lost!!!
    I am not a ludite....I have desktop, laptop, smartphone, iPad, Kindle, but don't really trust any of them....do as little as possible on them.

    I have tried looking at "my local" Walmart, first for the initial mag, and now for the second-Summer edition and neither is there...I really don't think there are that many quilters frequenting that store as the other quilt mags are there......the local LQS does not even know what I am talking about......don't shop there much!! so I guess I have to take the trek to the nearest JoAnn Fabric-25 miles......

    I don't watch the F/P series any longer.....something is not the same.....but, there also is no longer any other quilting shows on tv in my area. Miss Kay Wood, Quilt in a Day....now have to search for them on tutes!!!!!! or buy theri DVDs......

    Jenny has a quilting quickly class on Craftsy that covers some of the things in the magazine. If you look on the MSQC website they have a lot of tutorials!

    It's not "live" chat. When you take the class there is a section for questions. You ask them and within a day they are answered. She also asked for people to submit pictures of the quilts they made from the course. I submitted my picture and had a response from her the next day.

    I must have lucked out that day or just the store I went to does different. Funny coupons there have a list of exceptions and magazines are not listed. When the fall issue comes out, I will find out if it's a store thing or if was my lucky day. I only shop there with a coupon so no coupon would effect my purchase for sure.

    I've never had a problem at JoAnn's, unless their magazines are already on sale. I've bought tons of mags from them with coupons before; they never blink an eye. My opinion is, someone at that store isn't telling you the truth!

    Quilt in a Day is on the RFD channel. It's a cable channel. PBS has been slacking in the quilt offerings for sure. I have noticed for March, the PBS channel Create.TV has picked up Donna Dewberry and LapTop Quilting again. It has the program Quilting Arts too. Create Tv is a cable channel as well. If you don't have cable, You might try writting or calling your local PBS and requesting quilt programing.

    I'm not real big on on the quilting channel because it's not a cable channel. I have to watch it on my computer. I spoiled. I like my big screen.

    Both the Spring and Summer issues are on sale at my local HEB grocery store for those in south and central TX. I liked a few quilts in each issue, but not enough to purchase them. I think I can get the basic instructions off You-Tube and figure them out myself. I just looked at them today.
