This morning I received my August issue of BWOF. Of course I'm happy to receive it in the month preceding the actual month it is issued for, I know many of you have to wait longer. But I'm disappointed in the direction the magazine is going. There's too much craft items in my opinion. As long as they're sewing/fashion related I don't have a real problem with that, though those are mostly not my taste, but tastes differ. The last pages of the magazines were always for craft items, and I seldom had a good look at them. Even in my crafting days, they were not very inspiring to me.
But now they have 16 (!!) pages of craft items, about half in the center pages of the magazine, and nothing to do with sewing or fashion. For me they are taking the wrong direction, I'm not very inspired yet by the patterns (but that can change when I pay closer attention) but the amount of craft items annoys me.I hope they don't continue this way.
Tell me, what is your opinion, do you like the craft pages? Are you inspired by these items made from "old" crockery or would you prefer sewing/fashion information?
I'm going to write about my skirt, very sewing related.
