  3. OOOO how fun. It's so hard to find stitchy mags that aren't cross stitch centric. This looks fun!

  14. Hoopla magazine is hard to find in California. I'd love this new one! I love to read Molly Makes (sadly the US edition is no longer in existence), Stuffed and Modern Quilting. There are others too - I love magazines!

  17. I have not seen Hoop-La so I'd like to check it out. I love all of the Mollie Makes craft magazines along with Quilting Arts. Honestly though, I've never met a craft magazine that I didn't find something to love about it.

  19. Would love to receive this! I have an easel that I change out an embroidered hoop design in my living room. Would enjoy new inspiration!

  20. My latest magazine for inspiration is Stitch.

  21. very cool giveaway! if i get a stitchy magazine, it tends to be Cross Stitcher...Mollie Makes has some good stitchy inspiration sometimes. and of course pinterest and instagram. i wish there were more magazines devoted to embroidery, not just cross stitch (which i heartily enjoy). thanks for the chance to win this one!

  22. There are embroidery magazines here in the US, but none I like or would bother to mention.
    Hoopla looks like it has fun and fresh designs! Thanks for the chance to win it!
    And, thanks for the only one comment too.

  23. The first two Hoop-la magazines were awesome - I got them off zinio. Very inspiring. Other than that, I tend to get my inspiration from websites. Most of the magazines I've found are a bit too... cutsey? in an older already a crazy cat lady kind of way.

  25. There aren't many in the US, but I've heard good things about Inspirations from AUS :)

  26. I think there's a massive gap in the market for embroidery magazines. There are loads for cross stitch, and I do subscribe to CrossStitcher (the UK mag, not the US one), but for embroidery we only really have Hoopla and it's not regular enough! I do like the Australian Inspirations but it works out really expensive.

  27. Hi! Thanks for this giveaway :-) At the moment I have a short term subscription to Cross Stitcher magazin which is lovely, but I just can't possibly keep up with all the ideas every month! So I might have to stop reading magazines and start stitching designs soon!

  28. I don't read any embroidery magazines because none of the stores around here carry mags about embroidery. I am always open to discovering new ones!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sounds like a lovely magazine!

  30. Not sure if my comment was posted. so just to say I have been reading "Love Patchwork and quilting" and I would love to win this lovely Mag. Thank you

  31. I've always wanted to get my hands on Hoop-La! We don't really have anything like it in the U.S., and I've never seen it available here. I do like to pick up a copy of Mollie Makes now and then when I see it as well. rdheicher(at)gmail(dot)com

  32. I've never seen a copy of Hoop-La, but have heard lots of good things about it, so I'd love to have a chance to see one for myself :) I've mostly given up on modern magazines, but I love thrifting vintage ones! My e-mail is in the sidebar on my blog, under the pretty postage stamps. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  33. I'd love a copy, because even the craft stores 'round here don't offer embroidery magazines. This leaves me *very* thankful for blogs like this one. ;)

  34. I have a big backlog of embroidery magazines to read ( picked up a pile of old cross stitch ones at a book sale). I enjoy Mollie makes and I also like Homespun, but my local supermarket stopped stocking it!
    It's really interesting to see how trends have evolved when I go throught the older magazines.

  35. I have a huge pile of old cross stitch magazines i picked up at a used book sale. It's been interesting to see trends develop and die, reading through these.
    Embroidery wise- I tend to like Mollie makes and homespun (Australian magazine). I also try to pick up Japanese embroidery books- they have the feel of magazines, so it hard to tell.

  36. Thanks for the great giveaway!
    I'm actually unfamilliar with any of the crafty magazines, I mostly use free stuff I find online. So it would be really great to win such and interesting ans useful magazine!
