Shouldn't subscribers get the new issue before, or at least at the same time, that it is available in stores? I am a new subscriber and have not received my Spring 2012 issue yet. After inquiring, I was told it takes 6 weeks and would arrive by mid-April. That really stinks! People are already starting and blogging about patterns. I wonder if the digital subscribers get theirs earlier.
Subscribers typically receive their issues prior to the time they are on sale. If your order was received after the subscriber list was sent for mailing you may have been included in a subsequent mailing (we mail about every 2 weeks). If this is the case, the summer issue should arrive in a more timely manner. I apologize for any inconvenience!
