I love Bead Trends magazine but we don't seem to be able to get it now in the UK. I boought a 12-month subscription for the UK edition for a year and after about 9 months it disappeared, which is a shame because the ideas in it were excellent.

Awesome Lisa! I never see that much beadweaving in this magazine, is that accepted? This magazine always looks like a pretty little book to me!
