SUMMARY: I bought this issue in order to read an article advertised in it about tatting, written by Anne Orr. It turned out to be a full-page advertisement for "Tatting", book number 35. I typically avoid magazines that feel like they have more ads than articles, and "Good Housekeeping" is on my list of magazines I usually pass over. I was annoyed enough with the faux Anne Orr article, that I decided to review this issue and warn other hopeful potential buyers. If you want a copy of the ad, just contact me. You don't need to go looking for this issue on an Anne Orr sighting rumor.
