Just an observation.
It was not that long ago that Scrapbooking had several periodicals devoted to it as a hobby. Yet today when I stopped at the magazine rack in my local grocery store I observed 5 Quilting magazines, 3 Beading magazines, 1 Card Making magazine (which incidentally I purchased for $9.95) and 0 Scrapbooking magazines. What has happened to all of my beloved issues of Memory Makers, Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks ETC and more? Is the hobby dieing out or is there no profit to be made in producing periodicals anymore? I also look at my two local chain drug stores each time I go in them and... nothing. I live in a small town and do not enjoy the luxury of a bookstore perhaps I could find one there. Just an observation, any thoughts? Are yall still buying magazines off the rack, are you downloading them digitally, or are they obsolete? Just wondering.
