WHAT THE ...??? Must Change Attitude

Art by Mary Engelbreit.
Hello Everyone.
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.

I hadn't heard this. Oh, my! I just renewed my subscription and three others as gifts. I hope there will be a return policy! I'm with you. I liked the old format, and I realize every magazine needs advertisers. But the covers weren't quite so cute and I didn't like the new masthead. But ... yes, we'll bitch. I hope she finds a publisher with some $$. Thanks for your comments. I look forward to hearing from you. jeanne

I am not familiar with either publication, but I know what you mean about everything changing. I love old fashioned & simple...maybe it's a reflection of myself.
(it's great to have a forum where you can bitch a little huh? lol)

I worry for all smaller publications out there right now.
