    Hi, I notice that there are inactive links to download/print the document in the digital magazine. Will these become active when one pays for the insider access?

    I just became a member and downloaded the book Fabric Savvy. This is great! It's not just about fabric; all kinds of tips about sewing techniques are embedded throughout the book. Thank you!

    I just signed up for the Insider feature because it sounds terrific.

    However I am a bit puzzled by the wording of the offer. It says "To become a Threads Insider the cost is only $32.95 per year. Print subscribers of Threads magazine will receive a $20 discount, so you pay just $12.95."

    Does that mean if you become a NEW subscriber that you will receive a discount on the Insider membership, or does it mean that people who already subscribe (like me) will receive a discount?

    I think that the price for the membership is more than fair at $32, but everyone likes a discount so that they can add to their stash or buy a new sewing book or tool. Please someone clarify.

    Thank you.

    Anyone that is a print subscriber of the magazine qualifies for the discount and $12.95 pricing.

    Hi, sorry to be a pest but I'd really like to know before I blow $32.95 on something that's not much good to me... will I be able to download or print magazine articles if I become an "Insider"?
    Living in Australia, the subscription+shipping for the hard copy magazine is prohibitively expensive.

    You may call this a Senior Moment but, reading the other comments, I too am confused. I have subscribed to Insider thinking I was signing up for extras but have I actually paid for more? Have I now purchased the digital edition of Threads? Can I now cancel my UK printed edition? Will the digital editions from now onwards be available?

    Please put me out of my misery!

    Best regards from a loyal UK reader,

    Enid Rainey.

    You can see all of your benefits as a Threads Insider on the Insider homepage:

    Your Insider membership includes the last six digital versions of the magazine. When a new issue is added, the oldest will be removed.

    You also have access to Insider-only articles and videos, as well as, discounts and giveaways.

    We are definitely adding to the benefits so this is just the beginning.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Love the Insider articles and lessons! I just purchased the 2011 Threads archive and also love that. Does anyone know where to find an article about the dress shown on the front of the 2011 Threads Archive CD? It's the lovely green sleeveless dress. Thanks.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my preview and decided to let the subscription go through. I received a copy of the invoice and it wasn't the rate posted for those who have a "Threads" subscription already. It was 3x as much. There appears to be a glitch in the system but where do I complain about subscription fee?

  11. malice400 | | #11

    I just received my charge account statement, and I was charged the full $32 membership even though I am a print subscriber. (See my March 20th comment above.)

    How do I rectify this situation? Whom do I contact?

    Has anyone else run into the same situation where you were charged for the full membership even though you were entitled to the discount as a print subscriber?

    This is a question about viewing one ofthe videos. Is there some way that I can pause or stop the video? Often my viewing time is interrupted. If I shut down the computer I have to start all over again on the same video. At this rate I may never get to the end of the video. Deeom

    I have purchased several digital download Insider Videos over the past several years. My computer crashed and I need to redownload those videos but can't find where my purchases are listed. I think this should be much easier for us to find. Judith Nelson

    How do you cancel after the free trial?

  16. user-6982148 | | #16

    Just a warning to everyone. I'm trying to cancel my monthly subscription and there is no option to do this. I'm now going to have to cancel my credit card and get a new one. Threads is dodgy. Please don't subscribe.

    I am trying to cancel my Insider subscription but there is nowhere to do so and though I am logged in, there is no option to do so.

    Someone please help me! Please!
