Hi Trish. Issues 1 to 5 are always free. As of Issue 6, our issues are free to download for a month after they're released, and $4.95 afterwards. By joining our newsletter list, you'll now be notified when new issues become available and you'll have the opportunity to download them free within the first month. Right now Issue 13 is still available as a free download for about another week.

Lovely blog. Is it possible for the organizers of the annual outdoor quilt show at Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto, ON called "Quilts at the Creek" to advertise and/or promote the show? Can we add a link to our blog?

When will this terrific magazine be available at the newsstand, rather than online? Having to load all this memory into my computer is playing havoc !!! I would like to download onto a disc; however, there does not appear to be any method available as the "disc" is grayed-out. Please advise Thanks

Just received the Winter edition of Quilt Social. Received Valentine's Day. We're you intending that or was it a little late? I would have preferred to get the Valentine's mug rug ideas before. Of course I can use for 2016 inspiration. And the rest of the winter edition was not as time sensitive .....I really liked reading the mag. The information is good and the pics are great quality; great styling .....I'm liking this Quilt Social publication. Thanks!
