A little campaigning can't hurt...

A cup of tea kind of magazine
Three years ago, I got a horrible letter in the mail. My dearly loved magazine, Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion had ceased publication. The rest of my subscription would be to Martha Stewart's Living. I am not kidding when I say I went into mourning a little bit. As if anything Martha had to say was in anyway comparable to Mary...
Home Companion featured several sewing and crafting projects, along with ads for the latest fabrics, notions and gadgets.
I have almost all my Home Companions -- but I did donate  the first four years' worth to Goodwill when we moved house a few years ago. Thinking the magazine would go on forever, I decided to share the wonderful collection of articles, recipes, home decorating ideas, artist profiles and paper dolls (one every month) with others. The fact they are gone still makes me sad -- I suspect this is how people are pushed into serious hoarding.
Anyhoo, I just found out there is hope of bringing the magazine back to life. Oh, happy day! Read all about it here:
Here's hoping that MEHC might rise again.

  1. Here's wishing the campaigning works. It's always sad when a favourite magazine ceases publication. And substituting Martha Stewart Living mag (as much as I used to love the old original Martha Stewart show)... the two magazines really aren't comparable, at all.
