SUMMARY- This magazine reminds me most of my beloved "Country Handcrafts" in style and quality of projects. I always cringe when I see the words "Easy" and "Quick" together - fortunately this title is missing the "quick" and has avoided the slapdash crude projects I despise. If I were in Italy, this would be one of the magazines I subscribed to. You get a nice assortment of sewing patterns with a large pullout sheet with all the patterns stapled into the middle, and the issue I've shown the cover of to the left came with a wonderful tatting supplement with Christmas-themed patterns. My friend Annamaria sent this one to me, and I'm so happy she did! I like all the patterns, but I especially love the 3D Christmas Tree and the Stationery Appliques. There are diagrams. Written instructions are in Italian and would have to be translated.
