Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop

Stitching the Night Away Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop

The question is what stitching subscriptions do I currently have and love?

I used to get all the cross stitch magazines that were out there.  Just Cross Stitch, Stitcher's World, CS&N, I got them them all.  Then I discovered they were ending up in piles in my closet and I couldn't find anything I wanted in them.  So I got ruthless and went through them all and cut out what I wanted and got rid of the rest of the magazines.  I stopped getting magazines for a while.  Then I discovered Zinio.  I could get all the magazines I wanted and they only take up space on my Ipad.  And in the case of the British magazines (which I love) they are half the price.  AND I can check magazines out of the library and not pay anything for them!  So now I get Crazy for Cross Stitch, the World of Cross Stitch and most recently Cross Stitch Collection.  I will have them on the device as long as I want and then can store them them in the cloud.  I can also print the patterns I want off the Ipad and not have to store a bunch of paper.  So in my mind, I can have the subscriptions I want at a price I can afford and greatly reduce the clutter in my house.  And for someone who recently downsized, that is a big plus in my book.

I too am grateful for digital editions! I still prefer the printed stuff but there is only so much space haha. :)

Digital subscriptions are definitely a huge help when it comes to saving space.
