After Calico Christmas the other day, I went to Borders, which is a fabulous bookshop. I can spend HOURS in there, and I usually do. I love the fact that it has a cafe in there as well, so you can sit with a nice latte and peruse books and magazines at leisure. Heaven!
Anyway, I spotted a Fons and Porters Magazine
And there were lots of quilts in there that I loved! I *had* to have this mag. Well, then I looked at the price. Gulp! NZD$25 (which is about USD$20). OMG!! Hmmmm, but there are 3 I would definitely make and most patterns are about $25 here, so with the rationalisation that I was now getting 3 patterns for the price of one, I quickly handed over my credit card before I changed my mind.
I have since been to their website and seen how much this retails for in the USA. Crikey, I can't believe I paid about 3 times as much as it sells for there. I am now thinking about subscribing to a magazine, but wonder what magazines you all think are worthwhile.... Any suggestions?
