Of course back then, all we Australians could buy were American publications and the frustration of trying to source fabric and equipment was enough to put you off trying to make a patchwork quilt at all (no online shopping then ladies). Still I must have persisted 'cos I'm still here today...............doing quilting.
Just look at he price, that's obviously not the price that I paid for it, but I can't see that I would have paid a lot more, we had 4 children under 7 at the time, so money would have been tight. I must have lent this to someone and the only way to make sure it came home was to put my name on it (worked though).
These are the only pages in colour all the rest are black & white.
$3 for a years subcription!
Thankfully, we now have our own excellent publications as well as the American magazines, and thanks in main to the internet we can buy anything that our American quilting sisters can buy................and...................we get to chat with one another, how good is that I ask???
We've come a long way girls.
