Magazine Title: Great American Crafts: Official Magazine of the Great American Crafts Club
Editor(s): Julie Stephani
Publication Frequency: BiMonthly
Began Publication: October 1998
Ended Publication: Last issue I'm aware of is March 2001
Published by: Krause Publications, Iola, WI
Average Page Count: 82
Magazine Dimensions(ht. x w.): 11" x 8 1/2"
ISSN: 0891-9534; 1521-0928

NOTE: ALL COVER IMAGES THIS PAGE ARE PROPERTY OF
PUBLISHER, but are scanned from my private collection.

SUMMARY: I ran across this title quite by accident - the February 1999 issue was in a small lot of other booklets I bought off ebay. I took a look at it, and discovered it had a tatting pattern(actually two)! So I went back to ebay, and looked around. I discovered the premiere issue up for bid for less than a $1, checked it's table of contents... and there was another tatting pattern listed! I don't think this title ran for more than a couple of years. "Workbasket" became "Flower & Garden Crafts Edition"(which was published by KC Publishing) in June 1996. "Flower & Garden" was a sister magazine to "Workbasket" but excusively for gardeners to the best of my knowledge(I've never actually looked at an issue). I didn't continue my subscription at that point because I assumed they were just dumping their needlecraft subscibers into their surviving gardener magazine. "Flower & Garden Crafts Edition" ended June 1998 when GAC was launched. Since the Stephani's also suggested they'd be reprinting updated "Workbasket" articles, my guess is Krause Publications bought out KC Publishing' inventory.
The crafts given are quite diverse and NOT painfully generic - there's still some life to them - though you can see the shadow of dying creativity with the inclusion of the time period's insidious explosion of plastic canvas...

I'm having trouble finding more issues, but I'll keep looking in the hopes I didn't just catch the only four issues that had tatting patterns...

The Library of Congress site says that the title was continued by Michael's Create(ISSN:1533-9084) but not when this happened - and I wasn't able to pull up any listing under the ISSN given on the GAC entry. So frustrating.
