excellent Review by spiderqueen

I'm delighted to have these magazines in digital format. Piecework is the only magazine I still subscribe to--wouldn't be without it. I'm done with pattern-only sources, and Piecework's combination of history, current context, and useful patterns is unmatched. We have a very small house however, and finding storage for the print magazines was a challenge as they accumulated over the years. The digital magazines solve that problem--and they are much easier to search for particular articles and items. What a fabulous resource!
