All good things must come to an end...

After 12 years of producing the Technique Junkie
, I have made the difficult decision
to stop publishing it at the end of 2014.

When I started the Newsletter in October of
2002, it filled a niche. Finding techniques and
tutorials on the web was difficult; as the years
have passed, YouTube, blogs and other free sites
have filled some of that gap.  As a result, I have
experienced a declining subscriber base over the
last few years.
Although I have been able to
hold onto for the past year or so, it is time to
let go.

Although I will not be publishing the every-
other-month newsletter, I will still be
producing technique CDs and online content
with tutorials.
I will be rolling out online and
live classes, videos and other interactive content
in the coming months. In addition, the Technique
Junkies Stamp line is here to stay, and ready to
 I will continue to attend and teach at
tradeshows, and will be expanding the show
schedule next year to meet many of you in
 There are interesting things on the
horizon and I can’t wait to share them with you
in the coming months.

If you have already subscribed for next year, I
will be contacting you in the next few weeks
to discuss your options for your pre-paid
Normally I would be taking pre-orders for the
annual CD in this issue; note that the final annual
CD - the 12th Edition CD - will be published in
January 2015 with the two extra issues on it
(October and December 2014).  Those of you
who have all of the CDs will have the
opportunity to complete your collection at the
end of the year.

I have decided to keep CDs 1 - 10 on sale for
the next two months to allow people to catch
with the first 10 years (CD11 is not on sale).  
You should also know that your passwords will
remain active far into the foreseeable future.
The tutorial portion of the website will stay
available for at least the next two years.

All that being said, we are committed to bringing
you the best tutorials until the end! In this issue,
the following people contributed techniques:
  • Holly Brown for contributing the Distressed
    Fingerpainting;  Colored Stone Silk;  
    Twined Words and Faux Embroidered Quilt
  • Beth Norman for contributing the
    Background Stained Glass;  Border Text
    and  Waxy Words Tutorials;
  • Jane Bosi for the Color Pop; Resist Strips;
    and Rainbow Ribbons Tutorials; and,
  • Jackie Kalchert for the Corrugated Cut
    Windows Tutorial.

Our two newest CDs,  Artistic Effects, and
Bodacious Background Stamps. are still
available to order. Details for ordering
is on Page 2; the information for
Bodacious Background Stamps is on Page 6.

Thank you for your many years of support. We
have so much more to look forward to!
