Earlier today we corrected an issue with the log-in field on our QVC Community website. We identified a similar issue with the InsideQ magazine website, which we are now correcting.
We determined that this issue was caused by a recent programming change that intermittently populated the member ID field of the log-in page with the member ID of a different person who previously logged-in to the site. We want you to know that this issue only occurred on inactive login pages, which means that users were not actually able to log-in to any QVC account from the pages where the issue occurred.

The idea of blessing biscuits came to me while eating fortune cookies. I thought it was a great idea to help my kids learn about gratitude and blessings. It’s also a family activity that comes in handy when we can’t be outside.
Here’s a step by step guide with photos.
Have each child write on small pieces of paper things and people they are thankful for. It can also be people they want to pray for.
Wrap notes in foil.
I use store bought refrigerator crescent rolls. Place the foil wrapped notes in the center of each roll and wrap them as instructed.
