This afternoon I was in Joann's, buying buttons for the baby sweater, when I spied the Interweave Knits Holiday issue. Now I had seen the preview for this magazine and knew I planned to buy one, so I grabbed it and proceeded to the check-out. Once there, I was surprised to see that one of my items was given a $7.19 discount. This surprised me, because I was purchasing $4.00 worth of buttons and the magazine. I asked the cashier and we were both amazed to see that the magazine was priced at $14.99. !! What? A magazine? Really? Without the discount I would not have purchased a copy. $15.00 for a magazine? Get real. I would rather spend $15.00 purchasing patterns directly from the designers. I hope this pricing is not a sign of things to come.
