What are your favourite crafty magazines?

I am a freakin' magazine addict.  It is just awful.  I have no specific loyalty too.  I'm a magazine junky and whore!

I was actually just <hah> organizing my mags this morning and I have the following:
Bead and Button
Bead Unique
BeadWork
Crochet
Interweave Crochet
Interweave Knits
Vogue Knitting
Knit One
Crochet Today
Annies Crochet
Martha Stewart Living
Craft Magazine
Easy Wire
Make It

I have so many other home magazines or one off special issues that I have kept for specific DIY projects, or magazines that I can no longer find - like the one Michaels used to publish, or Crochet Fantasy.  Literally two and a half shelves are dedicated to the organized magazines - about 10 feet in length - and that is not including the ones that are in piles on my shelf in my bedroom, or sitting beside the bed.

Help, I think I'm an addict!

Hee,I'm always broke,so I just read them at work on break.I like Make(that's more technogeeky than crafty,but sometimes has ideas).Once it showed how someone has cut and sanded lots of circuit board,and made a small chest of drawers.Awesome! Adorn magazine,and Make has a sister publication I think is called...er...Craft.Somerset has so many different special issuses,as does Stampington.Altured Couture(yes,I'm sure I've missspelled that),and the Haute Handbags that comes out twice a year.And we didn't get in the october issuse,darn it!I love those two magazines!Sometimes they have good ideas in Real Simple.

I got sucked into a subscription to Home Arts Club/Magazine.

DO NOT ever get a subscription from them. They send you all kinds of "trial" things you never ask for, like the first book of a large series, and then demand you pay for it. I had a heck of a time getting them to drop it even after I sent the book back like I was told.

They also offer a "lifetime" membership to the club which is a joke.

The magazine itself is ok, but much more suited to the traditional crafter than an Indie type. For instance, the Christmas issue featured Thomas Kinkade crafts *SNORE*

Not worth the money!

Adorn, Knit One, Craft and Bust and Venus for their DIY section and the fact they showcase a lot of indie crafters!

I'm envious, I have never seen either magazine in any of the stores I've been to in Toronto

CRAFT magazine is very good, its kinda expensive (like $10 an issue, I think), but only because each issue is practically a whole book! its really awesome.

and READYMADE magazine is my favorite, they always have awesome projects and articles and info. about re-using and stuff like that. really awesome magazine.

I love CRAFT. I have all the issues and have not been disapointed in any. The projects are original and super diverse. The pictures are beautiful. They have a bit of a problem with vauge instructions sometimes. I can work through or around them but I know people who need a bit extra help.

Adorn is full of indie/funky crafty things. I get alot of inspiration from it even if I don't make the exact craft.

And finaly I'm ADDICTED to Quilting Arts. So much so I may get a subscription to the sister publication Cloth Paper Scissors. (i think thats what it called) When I first started quilting I got so bored with traditional patterns. This mag is full of the most amazing art quilts. Not a half square triangle in sight!

oooo cloth paper scissors is awesome! you'll love it! i have quilting arts too. i'm so happy they increased the number of issues they do every year! yay!
i also get fiber arts. if you don't get that you should check it out. very inspiring. i get selvedge when i can afford it. but it's basically the cost of a regular book! about $20 or so. so worth it though.
hmmm...what else....
art doll quarterly....i really want to try my hand at that.
craft, adorn, readymade
$100,000 quilting challenge...love this magazine immensely! inspires me!
quilter's home...i pick this one up off and on. it's cute! the writing is very funny! and the guy owns a pug so that also scores points with me   Grin
fabric trends i will get occasionally
marie claire idees....mmmmmmmm
there are many more. i really need to find a good way to organize my magazines. suggestions?  Grin
