In Issue #9 of Modern Quilts Illustrated we explained that we will be making some changes in future issues of the magazine. Given that we get a lot of emails daily on this topic, it seemed wise to post the same information here as well.
“I have a subscription to Modern Quilts Illustrated through Issue #9. I don’t see a place on the website to renew and I don’t want to miss an issue. How do I renew my subscription for future issues?”
In the three years we have been publishing Modern Quilts Illustrated, questions about renewing subscriptions and issues related to subscriptions have required far more administrative time than we possibly could have imagined. This administrative time has taken us away from what we love to do most — designing and making. Shipping orders of magazines when people order them through our website, however, is far more straightforward and efficient for us. As a result, we will no longer be offering subscriptions for Modern Quilts Illustrated. All existing subscriptions were completed with the mailing of Issue #9 in July.
“So how am I going to know when future issues are available?”
To make it as easy as possible for our loyal readers to purchase MQI, we are in the process of reworking our website to allow you to add your name to an email list that will notify you when each issue is available. The email will include a link to our website to order the magazine and have it shipped to you.
“Will the publishing schedule be the same?”
No, we’ve decided to move to a twice per year schedule (end of January and end of July) but add additional pages to each issue, more like a booklet. This will reduce the amount of time we spend shipping while giving you the same amount of content over the course of a year.
“Will the rest of the magazine be the same?”
Yes. Adding pages will give us the opportunity to include longer articles and more projects. Modern Quilts Illustrated will remain ad-free on the same great-quality, recycled paper with helpful illustrations, inspiring projects and beautiful photography.
