PieceWork Magazine Submissions

Loveland, CO
November/December 2014 issue

PieceWork is a bimonthly magazine with high visual impact focusing on the historical aspects of needlework around the world. PieceWork readers are passionate about needlework; they value the role needlework has played, and plays, in the ongoing human story. Well-researched feature stories explore the traditional makers of needlework, including knitting, needlepoint, embroidery, cross-stitch, quilting, crocheting, beadwork, tatting, lacemaking, and surface design.

PieceWork readers want to know the origin of the various needlework techniques. Readers especially want to know how a technique was done. Therefore, each issue includes in-depth information on various techniques, including step-by-step how-to instructions to replicate the technique. High-quality finished projects that readers will want to make for themselves or to present as gifts to others are another component.

If you are not already familiar with the content, style, and tone of the magazine, we suggest you read a few issues. We expect that the submission you ask us to consider has not been published nor is it presently submitted elsewhere. If any part of your submission has been published previously, please let us know when and by whom.

November/December 2014—UNDERWEAR
Oh my—unmentionables come to the forefront! For centuries, people have constructed all manner of underwear using a variety of techniques. And often these seldom-seen items were elaborately embellished. Because of this embellishment, these are items families have treasured and passed along to future generations. Compelling,
often personal, stories go hand in hand with this specific element of dress; projects will bring the unmentionables out of the closet.
