Welcome to PieceWork® Magazine!

PieceWork celebrates and expresses historic and ethnic fabric-related handwork in stories and selected projects on:

  • quilting
  • knitting
  • crochet
  • embroidery
  • cross-stitch
  • basketry
  • beadwork
  • needlepoint
  • lace making
  • dyeing
  • other traditional crafts.

From early Colonial samplers to Japanese sashiko quilts to beaded Athapaskan dancing boots, handwork's history in human history. The clothes that warm us, the linens that adorn our homes, the finery that lifts our spirits—these works have come from hands that tell us who we have been and who we are. And using our hands to carry on handwork that reflects our history and culture is rhythmic and sustaining.
