I purchased the JCS Halloween 2012 issue and found it to be a terrible disappointment. So far as I am concerned, most of the ornament designs were just plain silly and childish and I didn't care for the larger charts either. Now, I have to assume, based on what I have read on boards and blogs, that my tastes are at odds with the general stitching population. There seems to be a lot of enthusiasm for this issue. So if any of you are interested, please leave a comment explaining why you'd like to have the magazine. If clicking on your user name will not bring me automatically to a profile that includes your e-mail address, please include an e-mail address at which I can reach you if your name is drawn. I'll pick a winner on August 10th and mail it out in plenty of time to stitch an item or two before Halloween. This drawing is open to stitchers anywhere though I realize Halloween is more of a big deal in the US than elsewhere.
