ANG Magazines Go Digital

The American Needlepoint Guild has decided to make their Needle Pointers magazine digital so that folks eagerly waiting their next issue can read it online until the post office delivers the hard copy.

The step-by-step instructions for accessing the magazine are here.  Note that you will need your user name and password to log onto the section of the website that has this digitized content.  I didn't know I even had one!  ANG has apparently assigned everyone this.  To discover what yours is if you have not ordered anything from the website online, use the email address you have given ANG to send you newsletters and ask for the password to be sent to you.  That's how I logged in.

The Seminar Brochure, which is also digitized, can be accessed this way.

Once you log in, you have to manipulate the online magazine.  Sadly, you can only enlarge the text and photos once, which makes reading tiny text difficult.  (I haven't tried this on a mobile device which may have more options for enlarging text, diagrams and photographs.)  You won't get a much better photo or diagram, either.  This tells you how to turn the page, enlarge the text, etc.

Yes, it is complicated but once you get your logon and password and try it, it is a lot easier.  This is a nice way of reading the magazine and Seminar brochure for those who are comfortable with online viewing or who are impatiently awaiting postal delivery.
