“Everyday Cloth” examines these and other oddities that Victorian and Edwardian women with the leisure to make things by hand thought necessary in their daily lives. And the “Ladies Useful Stockings to Knit,” perfect for reenactors, incorporate a Dutch Heel and a Flat Toe, techniques that were favored by Victorian knitters. Trace the life of an extraordinary woman in “Knitting for Survival: Anna Samens and Her Knitting Machine”: beginning in 1909, when Anna was seventeen and working in her father’s knitting factory in Riga, Latvia, and continuing on to Russia, back to Latvia, then to Germany, and finally to Canada, Anna literally relied on her knitting machine for survival. And there’s much more in the March/April 2010 issue of PieceWork!

great project ideas Review by Sophea

I purchased this product for the info on the front cover-- the article pertaining to the pin loom and making projects with it. For that, it was very useful. Other articles were also great, and informative. I usually buy Piecework based on specific works inside, but for the most part, I feel like this magazine features a lot of the same things over and over.

Also, I purchased the digital copy-- and it crashes every single app on my iPad-- so i can only read it on my laptop and in the end I ended up printing out the relevant articles.. According to the error message from those apps, the images are too large and takes a long time to load, leading to lag in the apps and eventual crash.

SO beware!
