In December I posted about their subscription offer.  Two months later, the fabric has still not arrived.  On the third phone call they said it had run out because there had been such demand and I could have an alternative fabric and pattern.  You would think that if they had taken, say 350 metres it would not take a genius to work out that this was 100 pieces of 3.5 metres and then they could contact the extra people to offer an alternative, but I had to chase them.  The girl answering the phone, after a long wait in the queue, was apologetic and asked what I would like - there is a heart fabric, a grey... What is it, a jersey, a cotton or what? - sorry there are no more details.  What are the patterns that goes with them ? -sorry, it doesn't say.  She has been trying to get more information from them. I felt sorry for her but it is definitely cancelled.
 The magazine got less and less interesting each month too.  It is aimed beginners mainly but there were some interesting bits in the first one I saw. 
Conclusion, don't get involved with their offers. If one issue interests you, buy it off the news stand.
