Perfect execution of a collabortive project in crochet business design. This is a stellar publication with fabulous patterns by designers who know their stuff. The yarn is lovely, the patterns are lovely and the digital magazine is lovely. One more thing to note - they are giving their hard work out for free. Each pattern is priced to sell (at low prices) but they deserve your payment for the work they did. (nope not a paid review just extremely impressed)
