Magazine Designs Checklist

Over the years, quite a few stitching magazines published Loretta Spears charts. These turn up on eBay quite often, so I've listed them below in date order to help you find issues. Please note that Needlepoint News changed its name to Needlepoint Plus in the 1990s before finally going out of business around 1993.

Items I've written about in the main part of the Loretta blog have a link to that article with both a cover page photo of the magazine it was in, plus a photo of the finished design.

Corrections are welcome. I've not had time to double check all of these in the issues I own personally.
