 The two I get are "CrossStitchers" and "The World of CrossStitching" (I know there are more in that family, I just can't find them in the bookstore I go to in WA).....but yeah.... I love these sooo much. lol
   When I lived at home, in Vermont, I used to look through all my frandmother's cross stitch magazines and it seemed to always be the same stuff....like country farm home motifs and not that many patterns to boot.
 Now that I'm out here in a new state for college....I get the fun things that a small town doesn't have....like Barnes & Noble! lol
  The other day I was in there looking \through the crafty mag section and found those two imported cross stitching magazines.....and had to go back in yesterday to pick up the new ones. lol
  It seems like the bookstore gets them.....late (I just got the Jan. 06 issue in  Feb...) but other than that these are great.
  They have anywhere from 60 - 70 or more patterns, free kits (at least for the past couple issues there have been free kits included...not sure if it's always like that....but I'm thinking so because in the 'In the next issue'....area they said there would be another free kit.......um yeah, there's more modern stuff I guess.....they have cute characters like Tatty Teddy, Hello Archie!, and Eliot & Buttons, there are Disney & Winnie the Pooh stuff, mini projects, big projects, great holiday issues.....and one of my favorite parts is how much help they offer in the magazines. Tips on how to do what and suggestions for what to do with your work.
   They also include sections for penpals, cross stitch, and this neat page that is sayings....and they're all from other countries so I find it really interesting to hear common sayings from somewhere new.....
   I'm jealous at all the cool material they show that I can't find in town though.....like Adia paper. !!! Freakin' paper you cross stitch on. lol I'm a nerd sorry. lol
   But yeha...I just needed to sing the praises of the imports. <3
