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..
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!
