Another Happy Hexie Flower
Here's the latest in my pile - I fussy cut the center. This quilt is coming along nicely, but you'll have to wait until January 1 to see it and get the pattern in Hexie Love.
Ah, yes, the magazine. How do you start a magazine? One tiny step at a time…
If you follow Hexie Love on Facebook, you've read some of the drama. I bought some software to help me run things. However, I was not happy with the customer service they provided: missed on-line meetings, unanswered e-mails, etc. So I cancelled it - chalk that one up to a lesson learned.
Yesterday I bought new software. In less than two days I've learned so much! This company has excellent customer service. They answer my questions on-line within seconds.
The way the subscriptions work on this software is as follows:
No one can sign up for a subscription until the first issue is published, i.e., January 1, 2015. So hang in there. The day you subscribe, you'll get the first issue! Now that I think about it, it does make sense - that way you don't give up any money until you can immediately have the product. Nice, huh?
You will be able to buy a one year subscription or to buy individual issues. There will be a progressive quilt pattern for the year with one part of the quilt patterned in each issue. If you're interested in this, it will be much more affordable to subscribe for the year instead of buying individual issues.
I will keep you posted here and at HexieLove.com. If you wish you can sign up for my e-mail list (at hexielove.com) to get occasional updates, such as when a new issue is out.
So after much toil and trouble, I seem to finally be on the right track. Today I even started putting the first issue together - so much fun! This is the part I've been looking forward to!
There is still some boring stuff left: get a business license for my state and city, open a business bank account, and a bit more yuckity yuck. But all in all, I'm feeling very encouraged today.
