SUMMARY: This was a very short-lived publication. You get a lot of the usual suspects contributor-wise as are in Aunt Jane's Sewing Circle and Stitch'n Sew(also both Tower Press periodicals). As with the other Tower Press periodicals, you have extremely cheap newsprint(the print from the other side of the page often bleeds through, it's so thin) and poor quality black-n-white photos. Despite that, there are some fun toy patterns. They started a tatting column late in the series as well that only ran in seven(7) issues. I've finally found all the issues for this short run, and am happy to put it on the "done" list.
