I really like the on-line version of the magazine, but I can't give up my paper, carry-with-me-anywhere copy.

I live in Washington state and have yet to see a copy of it!!! No bookstore, fabric store, craft store, Grocer, anyone I count on to carry it, doesn't have it yet!! Isn't it supposed to come out the same time as Cloth, Paper, Scissors???  When is it supposed to be on the shelves???

I would like to be able to be a digital edition ONE magazine at a time, because I cannot always afford a year up front.

Barnes and Noble and probably Borders carry  Quilting Arts magazine in Washington.
