Donna, you summed up very well the reason I continue to pay the dues. If everyone quits paying, the site will close. Even with all the technical problems here, I like this site better than any of the others I belong to. Th e friendships made here are priceless.

Donna B:ut without this site I would not have met an amazing group of wonderful people who happen to be quilters.
Donna B:face it, there isn't that much advertising on this site, the membership seems to be their main revenue source). I really don't want to be a part of ending something this wonderful (in the big scope of things).
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
I love this site and will always be a paying member, I know this site has issues ,but as of now that is out of the hands of adm. this is mostly a server problem and hopefully they will eventually get it worked out. I don't always thanks the ladies that try their best to keep things running smoothly but I do really appreciate them . I love all the wonderful friendships I have made here and to me that is worth the cost of membership .. Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
I agree, Barbara, and I can't wait to meet some of the great quilters on this site.

I think it may be out of the hands of the admin people we talk to but the powers that be at QCA can do something about the server they choose to use for their site.
They remain silent for too long.
This thread is for reporting issues yet we find members are the only ones replying 95% of the time. Shouldn't someone from QCA be addressing these problems as well?
I have enjoyed my membership, I dont use all the beneifts but I have made new friends. I live in a rural area and the nearest Joanns is l00 miles away, I have used the free shiping at KQ, and free patterns and mag for ideas. I try to take time once a week to check in and see whats going on and watch some videos. It has helped me stay connected since I cannot get out much to socialize with friends and other quilters. Its like therapy. It took me awhile to find my way around the site, still learning. You never no when I will pop-up and say "Hello". The MQ7 pattern was great, I have made two and want to make more. Wish I had more time but I would rather be sewing. BARB
