It was the Feb/March 2002 issue. Had to do some searching for this. I wish I had that issue on my shelves, but I didn't find SS until the next year.

SS hit the newsstands in 2002 (per Stacy's farewell Editor's note in the last issue). Per research (ok I am trusting my fellow responders - I'm so busted...) it was the Feb/Mar issue.

Geralyn said...

The first issue of SS was in 2002!

Jill said...

I'm a newbie so obviously not going to get any of these HARD questions. Just thinking that I would love to get my hands on a 2002 issue and see how SS and the simple philosophy evolved.

Lisa said...

I don't know the answer.
BUT I know you are the tiara balancing, sash modeling poster girl for all that is good and simple. In a word. You rock!

The Premiere issue came out in Jan./Feb. 2002. The cover story was "Scrapbook Your Goals & Dreams" and has a picture of a woman making a clay pot on a pottery wheel. I have this issue. I'll have to go back and re-read it now. I know I'll miss this magazine so much, It was my favorite!
