    Something is not correct on this site. I can not get the list for Love of Quilting’s episodes description or list of products used.
    I also can’t remove the Quilting company menu; therefore, I am not getting a full screen to look at, only half, very annoying. I can’t find my subscriptions to the magazines.
    Not sure if this is a good thing or not. I know there will be things that have to be worked out. So far, I’m not liking.

      Is there a particular season you were looking for? If you find that season in the grid and click on the cover it should get you to the proper page. If any aren’t working definitely let me know!

      I am having difficulties accessing the 3200 series. I watched the program on fabric collage,with Sara and Angela. Angela used a pair of micro serrated scissors and Sara a press cloth…both of which I’d like info on how to purchase. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I am having the same problem, I can’t local specific LOQ TV shows with information about the quilts made on the show. In your reply, Tiffany, you tell the previous poster to “find that season in the grid and click on the cover it should get you to the proper page.” What grid. I can’t locate any grid on this page. Please help. Thanks.

    I just figured out what you meant by grid. You mean the photos of each series…. Sorry, that wasn’t clear to me at first.

    I am looking for the magazine month that goes with each tv episode on the 3100 series. Where would I find that?

  • Karen W

    All I want to do is find the supply list and where I can get the pattern for what was featured on an episode. I did not want to create an account but did to see if that would let me get information. I am not finding the information I am looking. Not feeling format is very user friendly.

    The navigation to videos for paid subscribers is frustrating and leaves much room for improvement. When I click on a series link, I anticipate a listing of videos for that series number, not a list of previews and ads to buy more product plus free videos. I do have a local PBS station assigned to my zip code but as I live on the fringe of the viewing area, I cannot access service. Therefore, paid subscriptions are the only way for me to view PBS/Create shows. After trying to access videos on several occasions in my time as a subscriber, I’m realizing that the time it takes to access the service for which I am paying is quickly becoming a waste of time and money. Certainly all of the money that F & W rakes in through all of it’s business ventures can afford better web designing. There is little incentive for me to purchase products, workshops, or even subscribe to a magazine when I can’t easily access products for which I am already paying.

    I just watched an episode on Saturday, Nov 3, I know Sarah Galegos (sp?) hosted the program, but I did not catch the episode, or the series numbers. It was doing raw edge applique over an outline of a penguin. Is there any way I can find that without the numbered info? I have tried to click on episodes above, but am unable to get them to work.
    Thanks! Connie B.

    I am trying to get to an episode of the 3000 series and nothing happens when you click on it. It is hard to believe that after more than a year you do not have this fixed. When will we have access?

    I just purchased series 3200, 2500, 2900, 2700, 2200 and 2800 and I’m not able to view any of the pattern instructions!! When clicking on the picture nothing happens. Can you please help!!

    Was really excited about getting this subscription. I am having problems getting to the Web page when finally get have problems getting anything from it. Wish there was an easier way to login in and get what am looking for. Will keep trying and give this subscription another month. If has not improved will cancel, not worth aggravation.

    I keep clicking on the pictures for the different series and nothing happens. I have confirmed my pop ups are allowed so it’s not that. And from the home page it’s almost impossible to find the shows included in my subscription….like Quilt monkey, or Quilt in a day. Still havent found either one. This is why I ended my last subscription ….cause no one even responded to me when I asked for help. What is going on with this site?

    I have gone to The to download the Gibraltar Quilting motif but cannot find t anywhere. When I go to Love of Quilting, Finishing Touch it is not listed there as a download. How do I get this motif? Very frustrating to get what you are suppose to bet as a free download. This site is not user friendly.

    I am really frustrated with this site. I cannot watch any of the Love of Quilting episodes. When I click on the guides nothing happens. I turned off the pop-up blocker and it still doesn’t work. This is reason enough to cancel my membership and request a refund. I just renewed today. I don’t know if this problem exists with any of the other content. I will try them next.
