Flipped through the Chirstmas issue of Handcraft magazine (I think that's
correct) and saw an article using Fimo to make mock Limoges porcelain fruit
boxes -- you know, those pears and lemons and things which have hinges and
open up to reveal a hollow compartment for trinkets or pills or whatever...

The author was Lily something, I really need to take written notes! ;^)

Anyhow, it was different from most poly clay articles I have seen...

Handicraft has always had some good polymer clay articles.  One issue
had neat clay bottle stoppers.

Is Handcraft magazine available on the newsstands or through subscription
only?  I've looked for this one before and have never found it anywhere
even at Barnes and Noble or Borders which carry about every other
magazine out there.

   I have bought  "Handcrafts" at Barnes and Nobel... also, at Hastings.
Just keep looking through the different sections... Crafts, Art,
Collectibles... sometimes there miught be another magazine in front.  At
our B & N they don't seem to have enough help to keep the magazines
straightened out.

If you have JoAnn's Fabrics in your area, you might check there.  The one
near me carries it.

Bookstores have no control over what they are able to stock in their
store when it comes to magazines. Their suppliers decide what they are
going to give them. It sure doesn't make sense to me. Also, I notice
that the very good magazines that we look for are only bought in
meager quanties, and when they run out, well, they run out!!  Does
anyone else notice this??? I find Handicraft at Barnes and Nobles and
Borders bookstores.  I do not like Barnes and Nobles anymore though,
because they are starting to resemble Crown Books.  I like to find
those special books on art and crafts, and Barnes and Nobles is
starting to disappoint me in that area.=(

Judy,
Thanks but I don't have a fabric store here by that name. I can't find it
in Santa Barbara but I'm going to try this weekend when I'm down in San
Diego to locate it. It's not at our Barnes & Noble but I'm hoping it
might be at the one down there. Appreciate you trying to help though!   --
Jane

I guess it's Handcraft Illustrated (although the "Illustrated" is in much
smaller type. I saw it at a Barnes & Noble. And Bette -- no, never did see the
followup you posd. (Did anyone in thie thread see a post from Bette Abdu? We
are trying to see if there is a problem with it getting out in general or only
to me!)
