  1. this always seems to happen. I am looking for the survey page to fill out, I am looking for an add-on on the web for QA, I am looking for whatever the little box says to go to, a URL, and I never seem to get to the page. this is not just QA’s problem, I find the same thing on other links. I am on QA website, logged in, and cannot find what I am looking for. why is it so hard?? I have been a subscriber or magazine buyer since the first issue. thank you for years of great ideas and projects. even if I don’t do anything from the magazine, I enjoy seeing what others are doing, and how they do it. I am trying to get into free motion quilting now, so love Susan’s tutorials. and thank you for the TV shows, too. there is nothing like seeing the technique done, rather than looking at written directions. pictures are great!! but where is the holiday issue of QA for 2016???

    1. Hi Shirley,

      I’m so sorry for all the trouble you have had finding what you are looking for on our site. The quickest way to find anything on our site is to use the little “search” box in the top right hand corner of the page. You can enter just a couple words about what you are looking for, and then you should find anything related to that topic.

      We actually didn’t publish a Quilting Arts Holiday 2016 this year, so that’s why that isn’t coming up. We recommend the Modern Patchwork Gifts 2016 for customers looking for a Holiday issue of QA. You can purchase that here: http://www.interweave.com/store/modern-patchwork-gifts-2016

      If you have any other questions, or just need help navigating our site, please feel free to contact our customer service team at 866.949.1646.
