AQS magazine?

I received an add to subscribe to the AQS magazine, with lots of "win this, etc" come ons.
Does anyone here subscribe to it? Do you like it? I've been shy about spending money on magazines that are filled with nothing but ads. Right now I only subscribe to Fonz and Porter, and sometimes pick up other quilt mags. when in a book store.
The quilting is getting slower and slower, need to get a baby quilt done for a baby already born.
It has minki fabric, which I said that I'd never use again! The mom like blues and brown for the baby boy. Can't seem to get motivated.

    This magazine is published by the American Quilters Society, the folks in Paducah who put on the biggie show in the spring. Most issues have some photos of beautiful quilts, a good history type article, a few patterns, good "news" articles. It is one of three Q magazines I still subscribe to after about eighteen years as a quilter. I consider it a "classy" magazine. Not too much in the way of "how-to" stuff. It comes out six times a year. It publishes the photos of the prize-winning quilts from the AQS shows in Paducah and other venues. Yummy!

    Another thought ... you can find this magazine on the newsstand at the bookstore or grocery store. I think you should buy and read an issue of any quilt magazine before you subscribe.

    Be sure the offer came directly from AQS. Seriously. There are scam companies who are sending out magazine subscription offers for all types of well-known sewing magazines, like THREADS and Sew Beautiful, etc., who are really not agents of these magazines. THREADS magazine had to post something on their web site, telling people the scam companies are not related to them. Copy & paste this and you'll see:

    I have received quite a few of these scam subscription offers from the Reno, NV address and I toss them. I almost fell for it, but something didn't look right, and I was glad I gave it a more thorough look.

    When I received an offer for McCall's Quilting magazine last year, I went to their web site, found a phone number, and called them to make sure this was their own (legitimate) offer before I sent my money in. That one was legit and I'm enjoying the magazine.
    Buyer beware.

    AQS magazine has a lot of art quilts in it and I like traditional work more than art. After twenty years of being a "member", I'm not sure I'm going to renew when my membership expires.

    I don't think you can "subscribe" to the AQS magazine, as I think it one of the perks of AQS membership. I joined, I renew, and the magazine arrives in my mailbox.

    If you've never gotten it, you might it. It truly is a well done magazine, quality paper and photos, etc.
