  • Suzanne

    I would like to enter the contest but I am not on Facebook. Any other way of entering? Suzanne

  • Shirley R

    I, too, do not use Facebook.

  • Deb

    I also will not join facebook. Too bad so many are going to it.

  • Ethel Roberts

    Not on Facebook either. Seem to miss out on a lot of things but still won’t join.

  • Betty Lollar

    I do not belong to facebook either and, like those comments above,
    I miss out, but do not like the fact that the world is watching
    and there is no privacy any more. I would love to enter the contests, but there seems to be no way. I enjoy DESIGNS magazine
    soooo much.

  • Pat

    Like all the others, I will not join Facebook nor will any of my friends now. I enjoy Designs magazine and have subscribed for many years. Happy New Year!

  • Vicki Bowling

    Again, I too choose not to participate in Facebook, I’d rather talk and visit personally or via telephone where I can enjoy the visit. Thank you for your contests however, may we who are not technically using these social sites allowed to participate in your contests too. We sew, quilt, embroider and have great ideas also.
