    1. I cannot access the may/June issue. When I try to open it, the March/april issue comes up. My subscription is good until sent, so I know it’s not that. Please help!

  1. I am having trouble downloading my May/June issue of Love of Quilting. I have a subscription for your magazine but it will not download when I click on the email to get my digital copy.

  2. I am a regular subscriber of the magazine. I got your e mail that my digital subscription is now available. I cannot get it downloaded, please help!

  3. I also have had no luck downloading the digital issue. Same story reported by others. Yes, I did download the adobe flashplayer and rebooted my browser but still not able to download digital magazine.

    1. Hi Cathy — we’re so sorry for the inconvenience! Another way to troubleshoot this issue is to use a different browser, like Firefox. Hopefully, this takes care of the issue. We’ve relayed our concerns about this to the company we work with to get these digital patterns up on the web. Thank you for your comment.

  4. Hi, I too am having problems downloading. I read your previous posts, however, now that I’m trying to download the update it tells me my computer will not (cannot) download this particular update. It is an older 2015 Apple iPad. I have viewed my magazines on it every other month. Thank you!

    1. Hi Anne — you have a couple of options for viewing your digital issue on an iPad. You can either use a desktop computer that uses Adobe Flash or download a 3rd party app onto your iPad that allows you to use Adobe Flash (search in your app store). Our apologies for the inconvenience! We’ll see if we can get this taken care of on our end.

      1. Any resolution to the incompatibility of your digital issue with all apple products? Not certain why I should now have to download some other app to read my subscription when I never had to do it on the past

        1. Hi Donna – So sorry about the inconvenience! Unfortunately, it seems that browsers are leaning toward disabling Adobe Flash by default. Try enabling Adobe Flash and see if that helps. If you’re not sure how to do that, here are some simple instructions (according to the browser you’re using):

          How to Enable Flash on Your Browser:

  5. I received this issue but when trying to locate and print off the pdf for my state I can’t find them. The magazine pattern says go to FonsandPorter.com/state. It does not show this. Suggestions please.

  6. I have updated my adobe flash player and I still can not access the current edition of the magazine. I have tried on my ipad and my windows laptop. this is really frustrating because I only receive the digital so I have no other way to view the magazine without purchasing it at the store. Help

  7. I cannot access the May/June issue. I am a subscriber but it still shows me March/April is the current issue. Normally I use my ipad and it shows up but that is not the case so I tried on my desktop. Same thing.
