  2. 1710 video says it is 27:46 but even tho I am a premium member I still can’t access this full video and QNN tells me I have an acct already. It seems if you want to see this video you have to purchase it extra. I am now on Google Chrome so Internet Explorer shouldn’t be a problem. Thanks for your help. Sue

  5. The Fons & Porter 1700 series episode #1720 Strata Quilts will not play, although some of the other 1700 series episodes will play. I really would like to see this. Thank you
