I just picked up the fall issue of Jewelry Stringing. I look forward to each issue and the easy to follow instructions. This issue, however, is a dud. I don't think I liked one thing in it. If this is the trend of jewelry then count me out. Total waste of my money.
I have not seen the issue you are talking about, but I know what you mean. I like to sew as well as bead, and I do not like the trend of some of the patterns, they seem to be going back to the 60's.
