Source for Patrones magazine?

jatman | Posted in Patterns on

Does anyone out there have a source for obtaining Patrones magazine?  The online vendor where I have previously gotten it no longer sells it.  Does anyone have a direct subscription to it or an online source? 

Thank you!

    You can get it at:  http://www.Amazon.com

      Hi Sewslow67, 

      I did noticed I can get a subscription there.  It would amount to about $37 per magazine.  I've gotten for a lot cheaper than that in the past and I was hoping to be able to keep that up!

        Jatman, I was not familiar with this magazine, so I looked it up. It sounds like you have a big search on your hands. Have you tried an international bookseller? They often have resources that we do not have, like friends in other bookstores in other countries that can get the magazines and ship them. It is often way less expensive this way. Sometimes you can get a subscription in your name shipped to you from a post box in another country as well. Cathy

          Hi Cathy,

          Good idea about the post box.  I was hoping someone on this forum got a subscription direct from the publisher but I haven't heard from anyone yet.  My Spanish isn't all that great so I have some deciphering to do before I can figure out if they ship to the US or not.

          Thank you for the suggestions!

            If you need to read a webpage but it's in a foreign language, try this:

            1. Copy the URL of the page you want to read.

            2. Go to Google.com and click on "Language Tools" to the right of the search box.

            3. Paste the URL of the page in question into the "Translate a Web Page" box.

            4. Pick your language from the drop-down boxes below the URL.

            5. Click "Translate".

            6. Voila - your URL page will load, translated into your preferred language!

            It's not the most accurate translation ever; it missed some of the subtleties, but it will give you the gist. Hubby and I learned about it when his brother complained that our nephew was getting 100% on his French assignments but couldn't recite in class. They caught him using this at home, the little scoundrel!

            But we grownups can use our powers for good, and if this helps you get the magazine, it's all good!

            Good luck!

            :) Mary

            Thank you Mary!  I just realized that it does a variety of languages including Swedish which I have struggled with for the past three years....better late than never!

            Wow - school would have been a breeze if only I'd had the internet....!

            Thank you!

            Oh, goodie! I'm so glad it may help!

            Unfortunately for many in school now, the Internet is doing their homework for them (like our bold nephew!), but yes, wouldn't it have been great to have an easy lookup back in the day?

            If you nab some Patrones, do let us all know how the patterns perform!

            :) Mary

            I filed this info away, it's great to know. Thank you so much. I learn many things on this site!

            Yeah, wild, huh? After we scolded our nephew for cutting corners, he winked at me (he's eleven!) and said, "You should try it for those German books you read, Auntie!" The scamp! But I must say he's right - it's the single most useful tool I've come across on the Internet, and I love telling others about it. Anything that brings us closer together is a good thing, I think.

            :) Mary

            Wow! That's a great trick! Now I can read some of the sewing blogs I've stumbled across, but couldn't translate!

            Thanks so much for sharing!

            You're so welcome - it IS a great service! It's not perfect, but it gets you the gist.

            :) Mary
