Homespun - help wanted

Does any of you crafters know where you can buy this copy of Homespun magazine in Europe or for a resonable shipping price somewhere else. My son loves the rocket.
I asked my cousinwho lives in Melbourne, but she couldn´t find it. Do any of you ladies in melbourne know wher you can buy it?
I looked in an online australian bookstore, but the charged 16 dollars to ship it... A bit high for a 9 dollar magazine.
Or is there a crafter out there that wants to swap the magazine for an European magazine?
Any help is much appreciated.

  2. Margy - it will be difficult for Australians to find this issue of Homespun in their local newsagency now as the January issue was published this week and would have replaced this one on the stands.
    The distributorship of Homespun in Europe has changed recently, causing some disruption, but I believe that you can now contact the new distributors, The Cotton Patch, at mailorder@cottonpatch.co.uk The issue you are looking for is Vol 9 No 12. Let me know if you don't have any success.

  3. Hi Margy, if your son loves the rocket you should go and visit Rachel of Four Wise Monkeys (on my blog list) as she is the lovely, clever lady who designed the bag!

  4. Thanks Karen for wanting to look in your stash. ANd you other ladies for replying to my post.
    I am so envious of all you ladies that live in countries that publish great craft magazines... People here in Belgium just don´t craft enough...

  5. Margy - I have stumbled across www.cotton-color.com They seem to be Europe-based and stock Australian Homespun magazine. The most recent issue they have in stock 9/10 and you are looking for 9/12. Might be worth contacting them to confirm that they will be receiving 9/12 and perhaps placing an advanced order to ensure that you can get one as soon as it arrives. Hope this helps.
