  1. I have a subscription to Quilting Arts, and have had it for some time. I can find the magazine that I want on line what I am having a problem with is finding the on line option of downloading templates and designs.

    I don’t think this is a very user friendly website, there is a lot of interesting information on it but it definitely needs some.work

    1. I’m sorry to hear that you’re having difficulty finding the templates you’d like to download. If you are looking for any in particular, I’d be happy to help locate them or email them to you directly.

      We are always looking for ways to make our website more user-friendly so we appreciate your feedback!
