I hate reading about publications ceasing ANY time. Victoria at least came back with its original cover and ambience.
But Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion will have its last issue Dec/Jan 09. Times are stretched thin everywhere and publications usually feel the pinch really hard, all things considered.
Maybe it's just me but it changed somewhat. Folks are still loyal, heck I still am. But I loved the ART, I loved the old covers and not the "new and improved" ones. It became less homey and more "crafty". not that there's anything wrong with that...
Bitch, bitch, bitch...
Rumour has it ME is looking for a new publishing company. Still... it's worrisome to know something relied upon and looked for is Gone (With the Wind), no matter what you're into.
