Ditto for me too. Because of watching shows here on TQS I have been introduced to so many talented quilters - and because of that introduction here FIRST, I could then decide if I wanted to pursue what other sites offer for more information on what these teachers offer. I get every cent of my money's worth here and visit this site every single day (and sometimes more!) It just makes me happy!

This site is very ambitious and has a lot of moving parts....I continue to think that TQS is a great value for the money and am so thankful it is available as one of our many quilting resources. Yes, there is a lot of competition that has grown up over the past 7 1/2 years, but this site still feels like home. Just my humble opinion. Nancy


Ditto :D :D :D :D

I rather changes and updates to a website take a little longer but when they happen they work.

Never had any problems with links.

Membership of TQS is amazing value for money. I just wish I had more time to make full use of everything that is on offer.

To be fair to dfrank27 (sorry I don't know your name) if you watch old shows and click on links related to that show you can come across dead links but a quick duckducking usually finds what you are after. Problems around using various features on the site occurs if you block ads, have high privacy settings in your browser or use unusual browsers but they are usually ironed out after reporting to tech help.

Sadly there are a number of previous paying members who no longer pay but just follow the blog these days. I have several friends who with the advent of Craftsy and all that is offered there in the way of tuition have let go not only of TQS but also of QNNtv because these are more for entertainment than education (I am quoting here) and in these economic times some of us have to be more "choosey" about spending our money. I have for the past two years looked long and hard at whether or not to renew but first I have let go of a very long standing subscription to a magazine and next I didn't go to a quilt show this year so saved not only petrol but also the shopping I didn't do :P so I renewed as a treat.

There is a lot of information and teaching going on here, there and everywhere for free these days especially compared to 7 years ago so the world looks very different now but this site is also part what we make it ourselves through the forum just like Yahoo groups can be very alive or dull as dishwater. Let us see what will be on offer from the powers that are and then put in our tuppence worth (or whatever our currency is) and see what we can do with it. If we don't like what we see we can leave it behind and say it has had its time and form our own groups or we can give feedback and suggest, be active in whatever group/forum will be on offer.

Please let us not get this into a playground discussion but rev up the sewing machine, do some patchwork and quilting, sit back from time to time, pour a cup of tea and keep an eye on the blog to see what launches (when it does). Then we can celebrate (or commiserate over) what we have got but let us not second guess.

Hope you all stitch up a lovely Sunday and don't forget to sew straight :D

I guess I've never found a link that didn't work here on TQS, or one that was only temporarily having a problem, fixed after emailing tech support. If we don't like this site and are looking for ways of connecting with friends, there is always google groups, yahoo groups, and Facebook, among others. Trust me when I say, Yahoo is always Yaphooeying with it's groups. I think we'll like the new site a lot. Can't say how I know. :roll: A birdy told me that the new site will have a GreaT search engine. If it happens. Kinda like Chinese Whispers, isn't it? pssst pssst psst

Shall we sing praises of this site?

How do I love thee, TQS, let me count the ways :D

Maybe we should do it when the clock change back to GMT - we'll get an extra hour that way although it may depend on the kind of drink we plan to serve up - I could be in need of that extra hour for sleeping instead :wink:

August is almost over...unless you have a sudden surprise planned...you will not have the new web site rolled out this month.

Maybe it is delayed until end of October. I see that the dvd that was supposed to end 30th Sep now run to end of Oct. I had looked forward to a new dvd to watch but maybe this is a feature that will be discontinued when the site is changed. There must be a lot going on behind the scenes because there does not seem to be much going on right now on the surface of TQS.

Rearranging the furniture?? Just keep my favourite chair in the corner by the window, and don't mess with the espresso machine! And you may want a facelift, but I don't need one! :)

Seriously: Good luck with the re-vamp, John. These things are never easy.
