SUMMARY: I have only a small handful of this delightful magazine - happened to run across the one issue that has a tatting pattern in it. It also turns out to have polymer clay and wire working articles scattered throughout its run. It's a pricey magazine, so I'm not sure when I'll get to fill in more of this, but I was delighted with the few issues I have. It's a fashion magazine - for crafters - brought to you by the same company that publishes "Art Doll Quarterly" and "Stuffed". It's a glossy, full color, lush magazine with tons of eye candy. Even if you're allergic to "high fashion", this magazine has gems scattered through it that managed to hold my attention. I was expecting the usual high advert page to actual article ratio, and was pleasantly surprised. Yes, there are lots of ads - but I didn't have to hunt for articles like lost tribes in the South American jungles. I enjoyed this magazine enough to start hunting for back issues...

The tatting article for Victorian lace cuffs in the Nov/Dec. 2008 issue was designed for needle tatters.
