Good Folk,

First let me apologize for any typos. Andras was busy and I did my own proofing. Andras spells much better than I do.

We have another wide range of articles for you this month. Please note the article on outdoor ovens and, if you do some experimenting, please let us know how it went. Also, if you try the ikat, we'd love to know how it turned out.

We are looking for articles. If you have something you would like to write, please feel free to do so. We edit and will help you with the writing, if you need it. We aso do illustrations, so lack of artistic ability is on excuse. This is your magazine, and we would like to include you in it.

Fuil and Andras
