Just Cross Stitch

Sometimes when I get an issue of a magazine in the mail it does not have anything of interest in it. It can be a cooking mag, Entertainment Weekly or Just Cross Stitch. If that is the case I will pass the issue on to someone else. My Mom gets my cooking magazines.
  With Just Cross Stitch I will also pass on an issue that doesn't have things that I am interested in. And I continue to have a subscription because I know then that I will get the preview ornament issue and the ornament issue and I look forward to those issues every year. 
  Also if you look at the price of any chart now... Comparable ones that are in JCS run $4 to $10 each. So I figure that the $25 I pay a year is worth it. I get that in charts out of the ornie issue.
  So when my current issue arrived I was very pleased.
Here is what I like..
Sweet spring designs by Needlebling.
These pin cushions by Jeanette Douglas. I was looking at some of these kits at Stitchville USA last week. They are straight stitches. 
This sweet design from the Little Stitcher.
And finally this design by Hands on Design.

There are other charts too that are not my style if stitching but if I just count these ones.. All I can say is "Jackpot!"

So if you are thinking about canceling a subscription or getting one.... My vote is to keep/get a subscription!

I love Just Cross Stitch magazine ..it is so much different style than french or British mags that are more often available here in Finland. Still I actually LIKE all the mags love to read articles and just enjoy pictures..if I found something to stitch that makes it perfeect!

Thanks for the tip, Chris. I may have to wander over to JoAnn's and get myself a copy.

Thanks for the heads up, Chris! I don't subscribe, but tend to browse if I see one and then purchase if there are some things I like. Based on what you showcased, there are several in this issue. So, thank you again!

You've chosen some great designs in this issue. I bet we'll be seeing lots of those spring designs stitched up.

I dropped the subscription, and I do regret it at times. Oh well.

Carol said...

My library gets this, Chris, so I rely on their subscription and then purchase the ornament issue each December :) Glad you found so many cute things in this issue!

Leslie said...

Looks like a great issue! ... it had me at the word SPRING! Have a great night. : ) Happy stitching.

I don't have a subscription because of all the high postage fees. But lately I have discovered that some of my favourite magazines offer a digital version now. This changes everything and I am now thinking about which magazine(s) to subscribe to.

I agree with you, and have renewed my print subscription. AND now you also get the online edition with your subscription so that you can download if you're in a rush before delivery!
