I’ve been spending a couple of days in the picturesque Clarens and while there dear old Karin kept the blog running again. Thanks Karin but now it’s back to reality for me.
At the beginning of this year I subscribed to an e-magazine called Quilt Pattern Magazine and I am enjoying every month’s issue tremendously. For those not familiar with e-magazines, it is a magazine that you receive via the internet. So this is what to do:
1. Go to http://www.quiltpatternmagazine.com/ (you can simply click on the address given and it should take you there.
2. Once on the main page, have your credit card handy and find “Subscribe Now!” Click here which will take you to another page.
3. On this page, simply select the 1 year (12 issues) subscriptions by clicking on “Add to Cart” which will take you to your shopping cart where you can check whether you are satisfied and finish the payment.
4. You will then soon receive an e-mail telling you where to go and what to do to start downloading your first issue.
Furthermore this magazine also offers its own social network for subscribers where you can join groups, talk to people making the same project you do, share photos of your work and see lovely quilts by others. All of this for a mere $13.99 (roughly R98,00) per annum - worth every cent!
In the January issue alone they had 2 BOM’s starting, a wall hanging, table runner and a Valentine’s project to name a few projects let alone interesting articles.
Remember I have downloaded my issues since January if anyone near me would like to quickly have a look at these first before buying BUT…….
