I think it would be great if you had a forum just for people working on patterns in Beadwork; it could be organized by issue. Of course, it would be great to have separate forums for other magazines, or sub-forums. Have you ever done this?
There is a forum for Beadwork magazine. It is located here ... http://www.beadingdaily.com/forums/9.aspx
