Longterm Reader

I have been reading CrossStitcher since issue 1, more years ago than I care to remember. Love the designs, there is rarely an issue in which there is not something I itch to stitch. We are downsizing, so the digital version is idea, especially as I can print off the patterns I am stitching. Highly recommended. Reviewed 09 January 2021
