I got my recent issue of Quilter’s Newsletter and it is time to cancel. They, recently, had a big campaign to get people to sign up for a 3 year subscription. I thought they had made some nice changes lately after recent content problems, so I signed up.
Hidden in the middle of the Editor’s column, she announced the magazine would be printed only 6 times per year. The reason given was that readers have said they can’t read all the information in one month.
This situation seems unethical and I really don’t want to do business with such a company.It seems wrong to have recently asked subscribers pay for 30 issues and then change the publishing schedule to only 18 issues over 3 years. If I am desperate, I can always buy an issue on the newsstand. My call to cancel and get a refund has already been made.
Additional bad news came locally when I drove by Black Cat Quilts, on Ocean Ave in San Francisco to see a 50% off-going out of business sale. Huh? What gives? The economy? High rents? Very sad. I wish Gretchen and her crew all the best.
