  1. Katy what a lovely video as usual I enjoy your shows very much.. On the threads , however Im going to have to disagree with you this time. I have had nothing but tangles and knots with Aurafil so I switched to Coats and Clark and EUREKA ! no more tangles or knots I dont want.. I know that the Italian thread is a “trend” right now but as for me I will go with what works .. Coats and Clark is great , I use the cotton hand quilting, cotton piecing and machine threads with great success..

  2. Your site drives me crazy trying to sign in, and then it won’t go to the videos to view, only shows me the previews. Is there any way you can help me know how to access the shows? I tried to change my email address and couldn’t, so this is the one I’m signed up with, but I get the notifications of new content at dcleak58@gmail.com – I’m so confused by this site! Carol

    • Carol if your expecting good customer service from this
      crowd I’m afraid your backing a loser.
      I have had several issues with them which has
      never been addresses. Thankfully, I now have
      Craftsy who have excellent customer service.
      I will not be renewing my subscription again.
      Qnntv, Fons & Porter McCalls Quilting seem to
      think their too important too bother

      Even if you email them privately
      it’s only a waste of time.

    • First you need to make sure you’re a member to see the full content videos. Once you sign in, you should have full access. I find this site to be very economical since I don’t have to pay for each individual video. But videos usually aren’t as in depth either – just handle one piece of information.
