4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely magazine but don't order from here!! December 18, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is a great magazine filled w/ creative ideas filled with French charm and style. But don't order it here, you may never get it and will be out your money. I ordered it 2 years ago and have yet to receive an issue. Amazon customer service was totally helpless and uncaring, they refered me to their outside vendor who had no knowledge of the order. Amazon said they couldn't track it yet they had no problem collecting my money in the first place. Since then, customer service has never responded to any of my inquiries or requests for a refund. Terrible, terrible customer service!

If you read French or not, this is a wonderful magazine. The crafts include embroidery, collage, knitting, tapestry, cooking and more. The fashion and style areas give novel ideas for using junk like funky-labeled tin cans for a beach house door curtain, making mirror frames from bottle caps. Think sort of, Martha Stewart with a French twist. The trimestrial issues have a holiday or seasonal theme, Christmas, Spring, Summer, Autumn.
Every issue has an abecedaire (sampler) in a clever type of embroidery. Usually there is a knitted pattern, most often for babies but not always. There is usually a travelogue to an exotic place, with great photos. And you can get a long long advance look at US style trends--for example, Marie Claire Idees featured toile and transfer printed china years before it got to be a hot trend in the US. I save every issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing...wish it came out more often! January 2, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I recently got back from a trip home to Quebec, and bought a copy of Marie Claire Idees at the airport. Well, I adored it and plan to subscribe! The crafts and designs are classy and stylish, a nice change from the "County" style, ducks-and-cows, fake flowers and Disney themes that dominate the craft scene here. If you are sick of pastel landscapes, cartoon characters and cutesy themes, and can get by in French, this is the magazine for you! The only problem is that all their supply sources are in Europe, which is to be expected. And unfortunately it only comes out 4 times a year. It's cheaper to go directly to their site and subscribe there; about 34.00 USD including S&H.

PS, marieclaireidees.com has a discussion and help forum in French.

5.0 out of 5 stars A French Idea! March 20, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I love this magazine. The presentation is so lovely and refreshing. I took French in school, but not enough to follow the instructions given for the projects. So, It's purely "follow the pictorial directions." I wish there were some way that this beautiful magazine could be captioned in some way. As part of it's charm is in the french language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas and Photos November 25, 2003
By Thao
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I love this magazine! I was in Paris and found it in the airport and couldn't put it down on the plane. It's full of pictures and ideas and instructions in the back, not lots of wordy fluff or advertisements, but just packed with beautiful, inspiring ideas. I subscribe to Martha Stewart Living and I'd have to say this beats it, however, it is in French and it's pricier to order. It was cheaper in France but I was very happy to find that Amazon offered it since I didn't think I'd see another issue again without going overseas, I think the price is worth it.

I love this magazine and have began subscribing two years ago.
The first two years I received the magazine fine, but the third year, I began to not get them.
I'm very dissapointed, and can see from other Amazon customer's posts they have experienced the same dissapointment.
I believe Amazon should check into this, as it seems to be happening on a frequent basis.
UPDATE!!!!!! I searched Amazon's web site and finally found the number to call to check on this magazine. The number is: 800-772-8574. The person at this number said they would notify the magazine and they would send me the past issues that I did not receive.
I will update once I receive mags.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best French craft magazine period! October 18, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If only they had an US version sigh*...Still Ooo la la when I picked this up in France for the first time I just could not put it down. The lay-out and photographs are beautifully styled. I was so inspired by the autumn addition I'm already planning on trying out a few of the paper collage projects. A superb magazine for crafty inspiration on every level- sewing, felting, vintage furniture restoration, interior design, storage, paper arts and entertaining a very collectable magazine.

Where to buy?
A bookstore like barnes & noble or borders might carry it (or other large bookseller local to you). You can actually call and ask them if they carry it and have one in stock. B&N will even put it aside for you with your name on it for you.

Does amazon offer the 1 issue option? I know they do... Read More
