What a thrill to open my mailbox and find the beautiful Classic Sewing Magazine Summer issue. Just full of beautiful ideas and lots of inspiration! Patterns by Debbie Glenn, Gail Doane,Regena Karasch, our very own Kathy Dykstra, Amelia Johanson and others. There is a precious baby bonnet by Sydnee Watson that I will make tonight. Just love baby bonnets! Lots of great articles.

I live in Alabama so not sure how the magazine is distributed. Keep an eye on your mailbox!

Hmmm...wonder how many weeks it will take for me to get mine here in CANADA? So hard to wait!

I continue to check out the table of contents and/or flip through a copy at Joann's to see if it seems worth the price.

I still have many many issues of Sew Beautiful plus several of Martha's books to keep me going. I've learned so much from those, that is probably why I don't see much of anything new for me in Classic Sewing that I'm willing to spend $25/issue.

I do subscribe at my US address, so have to wait for my next trip. Waiting on delivery of four cake plates for a friend for her dd's wedding end of the month, so hope they arrive in time.

I looked at the downloads for this issue and it has a lot that appeals to me personally. No stores carry it here, so it's ether subscribe or miss out. I've already ordered the Susan Stewart pattern for the Madeira appliqué dress and plan to make it soon. Can't wait!

I usually find mine at JoAnn's. So far I've been taken in by the eye candy every issue, but I was dissuaded to subscribe when I found out from the other ladies here that the publisher automatically renews the subscription. I would rather decide ahead of time if I want to renew. Sorry, just my preference.

I have been watching for mine to be delivered. No, it hasn't come yet. Been busy making FSL items to teach new BabyLock machine owners at club tomorrow. It is fun to see how excited they are to learn. The sponsor asked for some suggestions for topics, and my "big mouth" about lace got me volunteered. Remember how excited we were when Free Standing Lace was new? It will be fun!

I remember having mixed feelings about FSL. I'd already figured out that if I used netting I could make lace appliques ... and, in fact ... made the bodice lace and trim for my daughter's wedding gown using that technique with Skeldale House designs, which I then beaded. FSL came out almost as soon as I'd finished!!! And I thought, NOW you give us that technique?!?!? LOL. I am a FSL addict!

Vpenner--it's only an auto renewal if you pay by credit card. I pay by check and get sent a form to renew or not, whatever I choose.

Nice to know, Karen. I may work on hubby for a gift subscription since Mother's Day is coming up and I DID give birth to his five children

Karen is correct. I use PayPal and also must okay the renewal before paying every year. Sure wish the latest issue would get here.

I've not been able to find it at our local Joanne Fabric store...in fact, I don't see many sewing magazines
at all...which is weird. It's a fabric store! Thankfully we have a Barnes and Noble here...and am hoping
they continue to carry sewing magazines. I usually pick up Vogue when I see one...and of course, Classic
Sewing. Crafts of various kinds are taking over Joanne fabric store here...now, over half the store is "craft"
materials, crowding out the fabric : (.

It's worth the price to me, to get all the patterns included. This is a full, hefty magazine.

We have both a Barnes and Noble and a JoAnn's. I've never gotten it at Barnes and Noble because I've always been able to find it at JoAnn's. Ours doesn't have many sewing magazines, either. I've never even seen Threads there (no worries since I usually find that one at Walmart). Even my husband has commented that JoAnn's seems more like a craft store than a sewing store nowadays...

I went to NF yesterday and my magazine was in my mail.🎉👍👏 so excited! Definitely my favourite issue! And my Baby's Breath pattern from Susan Stewart was there too! Along with a nice surprise from Susan...a piece of lace. I didn't unfold it yet so don't know how big it is, but I'm guessing a yard. I put it up straight away so Paddy wouldn't eat it...without his regular exercise and day-care he's more chompy than usual.

Bless Paddy's heart. Hope he's doing well. No doggie stories of note, but we had a cat who would chow down on my sewing patterns if I left a project laid out overnight. Sure enough, I'd come out the next morning to cut it out to find tissue paper destroyed. None of our other cats did that. I could leave them overnight without worrying they'd be destroyed. Sure, I'd find cat hairs stuck in the pins--obviously, it was a comfortable place to take a catnap--but they were intact.
