07:46 pm - Back issue help?
My Google fu is failing me. Is there any way I can order a back issue of The World Of Cross Stitching (specifically issue 209) with a credit card and have it shipped to the US? I guess I could check eBay (although I don't yet have an account).

cross posted, appropriately, to cross_stitch

Yeah, eBay:



Note the latter is a charity for what sounds like a good cause, and it has a miraculous 100% positive feedback rate over 2236 transactions as a seller.

You don't need an account to search.

ETA: ebay is the go-to site for back issues of magazines.

Someone on cross_stitch figured out how to make the official site cough up US. Some really weird fields were required; I hope the bally thing actually gets here!

Also, I avoid eBay because I have impulse control issues. Sorry I did not make that clear. :-D

And sparkly purple threads! I may end up with duplicates. No regrets there.

As I mentioned above, someone on cross_stitch has figured out how to make the official site cough up US. Huzzah!

For those keeping score at home, issue 209 arrived on my doorstep yesterday (January 13). 3 weeks, from the UK to the US, over Christmas. Not bad actually!

(Now if the actual subscription would start....!!)
