Yankee Magazine’s November/December 2013 Holiday Food Guide

“We Asked the Expert,” — by Ian Aldrich (page 23): MaryJane Robbins, a baker and blogger at King Arthur Flour in Norwich, Vermont, shares her tips on how to make a gingerbread house.

 “The Best 5 Shops for Crafters” — by Debra Immergut and Nicole Blum (page 24): Sparking the desire to create is what Debra Immergut and Nicole Blum love to do. In their book, Improv Sewing, and blog, Improv Diary, the two friends and colleagues from Massachusetts encourage even avowed “I’m not crafty” types to get in touch with their inner makers. Here, they share their top spots for gathering inspiration, supplies, and the courage to craft with abandon.

“The Swap Shop Tour”— by Ken Sheldon (page 18): Going shopping? Who needs big-box stores when you’ve got the swap shop at the town dump (or “transfer station” for the hoity-toity)? The swap shop is the next-to-last stop in the life cycle of consumer goods, the place where castoffs get a second—or third, or fourth—lease on life.

“Local Treasure: Plymouth Just Isn’t Plymouth Without the Mayflower”— by Aimee Seavey (page 26): The ship that carried the Pilgrims has long been lost to history, but its recreation continues to keep alive the story of the 1620 voyage and its undaunted passengers.
