This magazine is a one-of-a-kind, it has the most unique and beautiful patterns for smocking and embroidery. In my opinion Australian Smocking & Embroidery is the best smocking and embroidery magazine that is available. The projects and photography are gorgeous and patterns are included for each project.

Buying back issues can be quite expensive. I have seen them on Amazon for over $50. Just recently, I came across a nice selection of Australian Smocking and Embroidery Magazine back issues on eBay. Generally, the prices were much lower than what I saw on Amazon. I am sure that this can vary, but I am hoping that eBay with continue to have them for a reasonable price.
One reviewer said, "Australian Smocking & Embroidery" is by far, the best of the smocking/embroidery magazines that are available today. Not only are the projects and pictures glorious, but the patterns are included with each project. Most issues offer a variety of sizes and styles for using smocking, but focus mainly on children's clothing. These magazines become valuable after time, as some issues as they are out of print, will double and triple in value. This is a much sought after magazine in the finer cloth/heirloom shops. Inside each issue, there will be a step by step lesson of a technique used in a project. "
