Saving Inspirations

Lately there has been a lot of publicity about the financial position Inspirations magazine is in. If they don't increase their subscriber base, they are going to go out of business. To me personally this means nothing as I don't subscribe to embroidery magazines and can't pick up a copy locally anyway. Plus it's not needlepoint so I wasn't going to mention it, but that was before I read the eloquent plea Hazel Blomkamp makes for keeping Inspirations alive in this digital age.  I think you might want to read and ponder what Hazel has to say.  It applies to the world of needlepoint, too.  After all, we need to keep the American Needlepoint Guild alive and well.

  1. Fantastic article. But I would venture the same logic might also apply to books!

    1. So true. There are so many things all around us that might disappear. Or not.
