Three French sewing magazines are (hopefully) on their way. I just navigated my way around journeaux.fr and ordered these:
I'm most intrigued about the one on the top left, Idees Broderie & Couture, because I've never seen this magazine before. Searching on the internet, I've learned that it has both knitting and sewing patterns and I recognize the multi-size patterns peeking out in the top of the picture so it at least has some sewing. It looks interesting. The other two, Fait Main and Diana Couture, are ones I'm familiar with, having picked up previous issues during trips to France. Despite the high exchange rate and shipping costs, it wasn't too bad to buy them online...about $40 total. Cheaper than an airline ticket to France, although I wouldn't mind paying for a ticket at all if I had the time off right now to go. Well, actually I probably would balk a bit because airfare is so high right now. C'est la vie!
I was pleased with myself that I could (mostly) navigate the journeaux site without getting help from babelfish.yahoo.com. And now that I found a dictionary to translate French textile terms, I'm all set for when my magazines (hopefully) arrive in the mail.
*that's click...click...click in French, in case you thought I forgot to add the "k"!
