5-0 out of 5 stars Always has something
I've been knitting most of my life and have subscribed to this magazine for over 4 years. Each issue has a theme--cable patterns, stripes, unisex sweaters, colors, knitting for children, etc. I find that even if the theme doesn't interest me, the magazine is always worth perusing. Each issue includes a "how to" section that will satisfy even the most experienced knitters. Articles have covered knitting in darts, reversible cables, and several aspects of designing. Recently the magazine was improved by listing yarn weights as well as the original yarns used in the patterns, which makes substitutions much easier. Most of the patterns are sweaters in classic styles with a few modern designs thrown in. While not in every issue, there have been many children's sweaters included. Issues often include other items, such as hats, scarves, shawls, Christmas ornaments & decorations, purses, socks, gloves and mittens. The magazine has also featured several "great American afghans," providing a few block designs in each magazine. This is no granny-square afghan pattern. All patterns I have tried have been easy to follow, providing both written instructions and graphs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Knitting Know-How at its best
While sometimes the designs in this knitting magazine are a bit wacky, the knitting know-how and articles on the craft are great. Even better, the photos, which are absolutely incredible. The new editor, Rick Mondragon, has come into his own and produced some really fine issues with many exciting projects small and large to knit. And Knitters sponsors the annual Stitches East, West, and (maybe still) Midwest conventions, where you can meet the designers, take classes and buy yarn at the Market. It's almost a cult. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Depends on what you are looking for in a knitting mag
I have been a long time subscriber to Vogue Knitting, it was one of the few US knitting magazines that had really fashionable knitting patterns. I am from Germany, where there are lots of knitting magazines with really chic patterns, I missed that when I moved to the US. However, I find that the content in Vogue Knitting really fluctuated - sometimes it was packed with great designs, sometimes, it was just too far out and there wasn't a single pattern I wanted to knit. I stopped my subscription for a while. Then the editor changed and now the magazine is somewhere in the middle - not too funky, yet still chic and fun. I still enjoy reading it every once in a while.

After having my daughter, I changed my subscription to Family Circle Easy Knitting, since Vogue Knitting does not carry any patterns for babies or kids, which I really find a shame. I even wrote a letter to the editor saying that this was a major omission. Especially because it is very hard to find chic and elegant kids knits in magazines - not those acrylic yarn patterns with bears on them! The German magazines do a great job of having some unique, but still fun kids designs.

If you want a very trendy knitting magazine that uses a whole range of yarns (some very expensive), then Vogue Knitting is the magazine for you. If you are looking for elegant knits that are more functional, but still challenging, I would suggest Interweave Knits and Rebecca (English version of a German magazine), both carry some really interesting and challenging patterns. If you have kids, there isn't much out there, I would suggest Family Circle Easy Knitting, also Rebecca does a kids issue once a year, which should not be missed!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best knitting mag out there
Being a fashion geek who loves to knit, for me, this magazine rises above all the rest. Like the previous reviewer, I wish they come out monthly rather than quarterly. It's a long 3 months til your next issue. Maybe Vogue wants to give you time to finish your knitting projects before giving you new ones.:)Nevertheless, it remains the most fashionable knitting mag around.

1-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Vogue Knitting, the magazine...
plus about negative 6 for Magazine Express!Ordered through Amazon in May, and I have been calling M.E. with increasing frequency since early Sept.Every two weeks, now, I'm promised again that they've cleared things up with the publisher and my first issues are on their way.Email has gone unanswered by M.E.To date, neither magazine nor refund.

4-0 out of 5 stars For fashionistas with needles, this is great
I am not a fashionista (too tall, too heavy, not 20 years old.) But if I WERE once again a skinny college kid, I would be making many of the models from this highly fashionable knitting magazine.

Vogue Knitting follows the trends from European runways so right now, thick knits are still in, and more daring items like dresses and halters. If you are a YUK (Young Urban Knitter) this is probably going to get you grabbing those needles.

4-0 out of 5 stars The best out there
Tons of interesting technique articles, and clearly written directions (with occasional typos).Naturally, the patterns specify super-expensive yarns, but enough guidance is given to make substitutions easy. There is a nice mix of classic and trendy patterns.This magazine would be perfect if it had more men's sweaters and kid's sweaters. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great design ideas
This is a fabulous magazine! Every issue I enjoy the vast number of designs and techniques within each magazine. The directions are always clear, concise, and correct. Each issue always has a great variety of patterns. I gave this magazine only 4 stars (it probably deserves 4.5) because I enjoy reading about the individual quilters, how they came up with the designs, and how they chose the fabric. Qulter Magazine only gives each pattern a very brief, 1 or 2 sentence glimpse about the quilt. I think I would enjoy it more if the magazine gave more background information. It is a wonderful magazine nonetheless. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great ideas for all levels
From the first time I picked this magazine up until now, I have been impressed with it. This magazine, unlike others, has great articles about quilters, techniques, fabrics, and everything else you can imagine that has anything to do with quilting. This magazine also showcases, in every issue, different quilting events that take place around the world. As a quilter, I've found that it is really great to see what other quilters have done to fabric. When it comes to the designs within the magazine, what I like best is that there are always a great variety of designs and techniques. Some magazines focus on the beginner level and throw in a couple of intermediate designs from time to time. I keep all of my magazines to use in the future, it is always my hope that I will, in the future, no longer be a beginner. I want those more challenging designs available to me--QNM does just this.

QNM is a wonderful magazine which is able to encompass all aspects of quilting, from beginners to more expert/challenging designs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Something I look forward to reading
I, too, have been subscribing to QNM for several years. I look forward to finding an issue in my mailbox. The magazine is a good mix of patterns, techniques, and products, and always a bunch of readers' quilts, too.

4-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Quilters
I have been subscribing to QNM for several years now and am
always inspired by every issue. I especially like "Photo Finish"
(picture of an exquisite quilt on the last page). Each issue
also has a featured artist and pictures of some of their
creations which is very inspiring. I sometimes wish artists would
include some information on how they actually construct their
quilts, so I could try them too.
All in all, this magazine is well worth its subscription price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best of knitting magazines!
This magazine is the best there is. There is page after page of beautiful designs and excellent instructions. I have bought some books that don't have as many beautiful knitting projects in them as one issue of this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars For exciting design and technique articles, this is a must
I think this is becoming my favorite knitting magazine. Though not as thick as "Knitters", the articles in Interweave Knits are interesting and useful. The editors often take one project, sometimes a small one like hats or mittens, and knit it in many variations. This was also the first magazine in the US to publish patterns by Vivian Hoxbro (Domino Knits) and got everyone going on this addictive form of modular knitting.

5-0 out of 5 stars My favourite of all knitting magazines
This magazine possesses very aesthetically pleasing design and patterns. I have only been knitting for less than a year, yet I made my first sweater from a pattern from this magazine. The directions are accurate and straightforward.

The only frusterating thing about this magazine is most of the patterns showcase an advanced skill level...

5-0 out of 5 stars INTERESTING PATTERNS
Many patterns covering all types of fashion. I love to knit but the more interesting patterns and textured yarns are pricey. This magazine uses a wide variety of yarns, mostly high end. Some projects from the winter 2002 issue run $$$/ball. They also have a very comprehensive list of vendors. Over all love the magazine and my only complaint stems from my own pocketbook because the end result are worth the expense. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Updated Crochet
I currently own at least one issue of about 8 different crochet magazines and Crochet! is my favorite of all of them and the ONLY one that I subscribe to. The designs are always current and unlike some magazines are not re-publications of designs that were originally published elswhere. Ladies wearables, accessories, and afghans are the staple of this magazine though you will occassionally also find wearabes for other family members as well as a variety of other interesting patterns such as crochet for the kitchen and bathroom, crochet for spicing up the holdiays, etc. What's more is that they always try to include patterns from some of the "newer" (or newly revived) techniques such as thread painting, crochet'n weave etc. The instructions are quite thorough, often with diagrams and yes...you will find some patterns in here that will cater to the plus sizes. Another interesting feature of this magazine is that they spotlight on what's new in the crochet world so you always feel like you're on the cutting edge of what's current in crochet.

Unfortunately, there is no pic up for the visual types such as myself but you don't have to take my word for it. Just follow this link to visit the magazine's official site and for a sneak peek inside the latest issue:

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have
Absolutely wonderful magazine. I count the days until every new issue. It offes beautiful patterns for a variety of needlework styles. In every issue it always has knitting section, a couse that introduces you to a new type of needlework (or refreshes you in one that you already tried), a monthly picture in cross stitch (a sampler type, this year it is "the trades").

During the year you can find patterns in most of the popular types of needle work (cross stitch, embroidery, sweedish weaving, chrochet, cutwork, whitework, etc).If you like to try all different kinds of needle work ,"Anna" is for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars "Anna" Burda's all-purpose needlework magazine
Anna has an assortment patterns for knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, embroidery, and other crafts, mostly needlework, every month, and the design quality is generally higher than that in American magazines, which currently place a ridiculous emphasis on "Easy," at the expense of design. There are usually some seasonal crafty-crafts included, using paper, paint, etc., for decorating and some purposes which are mysterious to this American reader. (Just what is a "school cone," anyway?) Overall, a very worthwhile magazine, with a lot of truly beautiful patterns. I knitted one tablecloth pattern for my daughter's wedding veil, and it got raves. Well worth the price! ... Read more

it's a wonderfull magazine, full of ideas. Special for toddlers and little girls.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE Smocking & Embroidery Subscription to get!
Australian Smocking & Embroidery is by far, the best of the smocking/embroidery magazines that are available today. Not only are the projects and pictures glorious, but the patterns are included with each project. Most issues offer a variety of sizes and styles for using smocking, but focus mainly on children's clothing. These magazines become valuable after time, as some issues as they are out of print, will double and triple in value. This is a much sought after magazine in the finer cloth/heirloom shops. Inside each issue, there will be a step by step lesson of a technique used in a project. Smocking and Embroidery plates abound, and you can order the kit to make the projet from Country Bumpkin in Australia.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful & Unique magazine, it's one-of-a kind
This magazine is a one-of-a-kind, it has the most unique and beautiful patterns for smocking and embroidery. Each issue offers many gorgeous infant, children's and ladies patterns. Each issue includes full-size patterns and gives complete instructions on every detail. This magazine has inspired me to create many beautiful gowns that I know will become family heirlooms.There is nothing else like it. It has become a must for my sewing library. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best feature is . . . . . . . . . .
As a subscriber to McCalls Quilting for the past three years, the feature I enjoy best is the table of contents page picturing the quilts in miniature. Then turning to the actual instructions page, I see if it is within my skill level with the rating listed for every quilt project in the issue. That is the best feature and the variety of patterns in each issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine
This is a great magazine because it offers a great number of patterns in each issue and it has a nice balance of background information and interesting articles. Each pattern and technique offered in this magazine is complete with concise directions, often including pictures and diagrams. This magazine is well worth buying and even subscribing to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learners aren't intimidated by this magazine
I am particularly fond of the McCall's format for this magazine. I am a beginning quilter and sometimes I am overwhelmed by some of the more "art" quilting mags. McCall's staff explain projects and techniques simply and often provide pattern pieces with the price of the magazine. Lovely photos give me color ideas and teaches me about the how the same quilt pattern can be completely altered by using different types of fabric. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Australian Patchwork & Quilting is the Best
I am an experienced quilter and am familiar with many of the quilting publications currently on the market. In my opinion this is certainly one of the very best. Beautiful quilts for all skill levels and excellent instructions. Exciting patterns and outstanding use of color. Very inspiring.

Sadly, it is hard to find on news stands or in US quilt shops, and the subscription price in the US is very high. But, if you have the money to invest in one really good magazine, this is it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love the magazine
Hi: I am a brand new quilter and have had a chance to read and get some samples from one of your magazinez, I am really happy with my experience and would like to see if you can direct me as of where I can find a particular volume.
I am looking for the August 2002 magazine which features a Butterflies Quilt, which I would like to reproduce for my home.
If any one can assist me with this I will appreciate it.
The other thing I find in your magazine is that give easy instructions on how to which is very helpfull when you are starting this kind of business for the first time.
Thank you very much for sharing with Us such a good publication.

5-0 out of 5 stars The name couldn't be better!!
I buy lots of needlework magazines, including quilting, and this is the absolute #1 magazine I have ever read. In fact I just bought about 30 back issues.

I can't wait for the next issue to arrive. The projects are beautiful, and do-able. I think any one could do them from novice to experienced. Even the advertising is great. I love to get on the internet and surf through the sites of the advertisers.

I can't think of a single negative thing about this magazine except I wish it came more often!! If you subscribe you won't be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Filled with truly inspired embroidery projects
Inspirations is the perfect name for this publication. Every feature inside is a little gem of needleart craftsmanship that would stand out against any professional work. How they manage to keep on creating those deligthtful designs every issue without starting to look like every other pedestrian embroidery magazine I have no idea, but the editors deserve a little prayer of thanks for their high standards.

Inspirations magazine is a pleasure to look at and read. Top needlework, smocking and sewing designers from Australia and around the world publish their projects here. Lovely photography complements layouts that are clean, elegant and decidedly feminine. Advertisements are restricted to the very back, leaving the main section content uninterrupted. Even the cover is printed on a nice, heavyweight stock closer to a book's quality than a magazine's.

What's really important to me in a crafting/artisan type magazine however is that the projects are actually do-able. In a publication of Inspirations' caliber, you'd expect such charming, intricate embroideries to be beyond the ability of the casual needleworker. Surprisingly, that's not the case at all! With each featured item there are embroidery keys and directions that guide each step, with clear illustrations. Full-sized patterns are found in the pull-out center section. If you have trouble coming up with materials and notions you can order project kits directly from the publisher. Everything is arranged to be as easy as possible, and the results are exquisite.

Every other month the arrival of Inspirations magazine spawns a new list of projects for my stash. For example, my favorite issue of 2002 had the following lineup: a charming measuring tape holder that looked like a little country cottage covered with flowers, a matching thimble holder, bullion roses paperweight, hedgehog pin cushion and needlebag, ribbon roses cushion, roses and daisies lap blanket, beribboned baby bunting, girl's overall with flowers, an elegant white ladies'linen shirt and a Victorian stitch book.
Even if you are a beginner you will find several things inside that are perfectly adapted to your ability, but which look like they require decades of experience. These are the kinds of unique items that strangers would inquire about.

Recommended for every skill level - but caution: you may find yourself spending all your free time in embroidering bliss!

3-0 out of 5 stars Hit or miss
"Knit N Style" has been around for a long time--I remember picking it up when I first began knitting seriously several decades ago. It has some nice patterns, but overall I find it the least useful of the major knitting magazines. I don't know about its current policies, but it used to be a vehicle by which the yarn manufacturers promoted their wares. On numerous occasions, the patterns published in "Knit N Style" were pattterns previously published as leaflets by the manufacturer of the yarn suggested. I don't know if this continues to be their policy, and they have made attempts to upgrade the editorial content with informational features. Nonetheless the magazine's quality remains lower than that of Knitters, Vogue Knitting, etc. My advice is to check it out at the newstand and if you see a pattern you like, then buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars No good Patterns - ever
I have about two to three years of Knit N Style (2001 - 2003)Magazines, and lately have spent a lot of time looking through them for a Cardigan Pattern to Knit for myself. I haven't found a single one. All of the patterns have serious faults: Drop Shoulders, (totally unacceptable) little or no armhole, neck and/or shoulder shaping. Most sleeves have little or no cap. And, worst of all, they are all made in five or more pieces. Haven't any of these "designers" heard of Elizabeth Zimmerman? I was going to give the lot to the library, but am wondering if perhaps the trash might be a better place. If you are trying to attract new knitters from among younger people, why don't you teach them the PROPER way to knit? Young people are smarter than you think.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cindy
I have subscribed to this magazine for the last year. There are good quality photos, hand & machine knitting instructions, and schematics for every pattern. However, instructions are sometimes on the same page, a few pages later, or in the back of the magazine--not consistent and sometimes challenging to find. It would be nice if the editor would have these in a consistent location. ... Read more
