SUMMARY: I get my jollies crafting for that other great crafter holiday(no, not Thanksgiving, Easter, or Valentine's Day). Even so, I'd get tired of a 12-month diet of it pretty quickly. I can't imagine the dedication the two ladies who started this venture had to have had to do this for five years! There is a lot of cross-stitch in this run - it is the dominant craft - with a lighter diet of quilting as the next most prevalent. Then you get a potpourri of other crafts. There aren't as many heirloom quality projects as I would have wished - but I'm a hater when it comes to "Quick & Easy" stuff. What I want from a magazine are designs I don't have the expertise to develop myself. I didn't get nearly as much of that as I would have liked. Your mileage, of course, may vary.

There's only a very small handful of stuffed toys. I would have expected at least one in every issue as a given. I would also expect all sorts of yummy holiday recipes in every issue, but those were rare as well. Over all, I was mildly disappointed with this run, but was still able to find a few things I really liked even though I'm not a cross-stitcher or quilter. You get about as many clay projects as you do tatting, and the clay projects are very basic stuff.

The Only Tatting Patterns are in:

May/June 1992- "Christmas Star and Snowflake", by Mary H. McCarthy
Nov/Dec 1994- "Tatted Angels", by Kathie Ballard

There was no indication in the last issue that it was going to be the last issue, So there's a mystery there. I did run across a small magazine run that called itself "Year Round Christmas" from 1997. It turned out to be a collector's, not a crafter's, magazine. It was dedicated to Christmas memorabilia.
