August 2023 is a month for anniversaries.  We are celebrating 46 years of Treenway Silks and our 12th year as owner/custodians. PieceWork magazine is celebrating 30 years of publishing "All This By Hand."

If you love the legacy of needlework, then this is a wonderful magazine for you to add to your personal library.

As founder Linda Ligon says:  "It's true that most of the stories in PieceWork honor the past, but it's also true that the past is what propels us forward."

I have followed Piecework magazine since the first issue in March 1993.  It's filled with rich stories that bring-to-life treasured handwork.  It gives the history surrounding the piece.  Plus there are instructions to create a similar piece using today's materials.

History can be boring, however PieceWork is anything but! Lovely photos.  Well written stories.  Accurate information.  It's a magazine that one actually reads, rather than just scanning photos and skimming captions and then setting aside.

The inaugural issue had these words by Editor Veronica Patterson on the cover: 
"For their hands tell a story, and the works of their hands tell a story -- each thread connecting us to those who came before.  And the story endures."

I love that statement.
