|Thank you Joanna for taking the time to give such a detailed reply.|
I no longer have subscriptions to either magazine. For me PP lost it's way, and, this is not a negative criticism, P&Q is too traditional and not always challenging enough for me. I have 3 subscriptions for newer magazines but I am dropping one as it is aimed at beginners but it had an incredibly cheap subscription deal! Hint!
I understand the reasoning for using a particular manufacturer and their patterns. I must admit that I have never bought the fabric mentioned for a design and I usually tweak the designs too. It doesn't bother me. I do have two annoyances - firstly that so many quilts are so big and it takes me time to do the maths to reduce them and secondly when there are a number of items by the same designer in one magazine, particularly if you don't like that designer's style!
Designers that I like - Stuart Hillard, Katherine Guerrier, Jo Avery, Lynne Goldsworthy, Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
I also love my Sizzix.
Good luck with taking us lot into your fold. I hope that we behave!

I had guessed that cost was becoming more important....that is something we all have to consider at the moment!!!!
I have just compared the most recent editions of both magazines.......and yes projects are subjective and that has always been the case even if only subscribing to either magazine! The one thing I personally find easier is PP "What's On" page...... it is printed by countries then counties whereas P&Q go by date. If I know we are going to be away ....then it is easier to see what is available in a particular area.......but it is a very minor thing!

Thanks Rosemary. I guess we have always done the events page by date. Interestingly my assistant editor, Helen, has provided the text for the PP page over the last year or so....

OMG I have been out of the loop for a few weeks and just discovered this news via a QG forum message via email. Not sure if this question has already been asked but will digital subs just be carried over as well? I live abroad so use this forum a lot to keep in touch with all my Uk quilting friends.
