They both cover world wide news, comedy, popular issues, academic issues, instructions, entertainment and food for thought. (The only way they differ is that the BBC covers a lot of sport, and I find the lack of sports coverage in quilting magazines a refreshing change!)
For those who subscribe to the magazine, their subscription will be filled with 'Quilting Arts' which seems to me a bit like cancelling the BBC and replacing it with Dave; both are tv channels, but don't have all that much in common beyond that.
So, what are we o do? We just have to mourn its passing, as there is no other quilting magazine which can claim to cover the whole world of quilting. RIP QNM.
