When I joined last August I received my Joanns card and magazines, there was no box of samples. It would have been nice though.

I never saw any mention of a "box" of anything. Unless it is love, giggles, tears and sheer joy from the other members!!

I got what everyone else did. Membership card, Joanns card and then the magazine.

2 years and nothing for my subscription either, I have stopped all F/P magazines and  JoAnn Fabrics should do something to  get F/P to put out.  I changed to other stores and sites.

Dee,

How unfortunate that you have these feelings about your subscription to this site.  I am a long-time member, have recommended many friends to the Club, and have gained many benefits from both the on-line resources as well as the F/P printed media.  The free patterns alone have been well worth the yearly dues, not to mention access to the video tutorials.  Is there any help we can give you to change your mind.

Another Dee

I have been a member - paid - since QCA was first started and I have to actually say the price was much higher in the beginning and I felt even then that I got my monies worth.  I love QNNtv - If I want to learn a new technique or see something any time of night, I can go over there and see it - the quilt shows that were never ever in any area that I lived are great.  You get to see new shows Quilt out Loud(which I understand now has been cancelled), Quilt it which is great for new long armers and gives me ideas too as a domestic sewing machine machine quilter - Quilty with Mary Fons - although not my favorite of the programs does give some good ideas for beginners - and great tutorials.  So many many programs for any quilter to help them become better.  

then the other discounts - one from keepsake which is free shipping - and that is sometimes worth its weight in gold these days... Discounts not only at JoAnn's but other stores as well - and other free things.  I love Easy Quilt magazine - it has changed over the years but when it had the opportunity for a regular person to get there quilt in the magazine I thought that was awesome but I love the easy made quilts - 

I do think the site here needs more work - I am not sure why there is always a problem with the server - why almost every day depending on what time you get on - either it is extremely slow or you can't get on at all - that bothers me a lot... but I take it in stride most days... 

I do not believe that there is any goodie bag anymore - trying to get the things to send out was more problems for the small staff and keeping that organized got lost somewhere... not sure why but who knows - I do know that I have made many many good quilt friends on here that just having that interaction has more then been payment for my price of my subscription.  

If the server got fixed once and for all - I would be more then happy!

I think my subscription is worth it. I use the Joann's discounts quite often. I have to say I have even learned to order fabric online with specials from other places thanks to QCA. I enjoy the magazine as well. I love the things I learn no matter if about quilting, my machine, gift ideas, or just simple things such as how to do something completely unrelated. I cherish the people I have met here. I was MIA for a while and no matter what was going on certain things made me think of a few special ladies I met here and it always brought a smile to me. I was delighted when I returned several where still here....Thanks QCA!

I'm a material girl....Want to see my fabric collection?

Don't you have to be a paid member to take part in groups?

they only publish 4 mags a year and you probably wouldn't have gotten the fall issue.  so i think you only would have recieved one by now iwth another soon to come.

Carol, go to the sponsor page and look up the Jo-Ann link  it tells  you how to get the discount card ,you have to order it. Easy to do, they mail it right to your house.  Barbara

UPDATE.  I did receive an email from admin., also known as fogbugz.  Who came up with that name?? LOL  Oops, probably showing my age!

Anyway, they say they didn't get my email from the 27th of March.  I copied it into my return email.  I guess someone messed up my address, had half WY and half TX, guarantee that the magazines, etc. didn't find me that way.  I guess the box of goodies ended a couple years ago.  I corrected my address with them and they say they will send my magazines, etc. quickly.

I'm sorry some of you have become upset over my post.  I joined when this site first started.  There are many good things about it.  I don't always get the chance to make the most of it, but that lack of time is my fault not this web site.  I do use my card to get the JoAnn's discount.  I also like the videos, and need to watch them more.  I enjoy the forum, but find it harder to connect, find things, etc. with the web site change which took place a while ago, now.  When it started it was real easy, but I guess the geek guys need to keep their job.  That's the only reason I see to make changes to something that works fine.  AND I'm not just talking here, I'm talking about most web sites.

Bottom line....admin. did email as they said they would.  I should have my magazines soon.  Also the dvd and member card.
