Your magazine is one of the most beautifully presented that I have ever read—in Europe or here in Canada. It somehow has a calming effect in these difficult times.

Dominique Perron, West Kootenays, Canada

I am not a homesteader nor a “FOLKLIFE” kind of person—I don't have a vegetable garden, I never walk barefoot outside, I'm not even a mother. But after reading volume 4, my first exposure to FOLKLIFE, I just have to share with you how immensely touched I am with this thoughtful and inspiring magazine ... the content, the layout, the flow, the stories ... it's giving me a deep feeling of being comforted and nurtured.

I am spellbound.
Riveted. Breathless reading Volume 04. The intimacy enveloped me. I am so deeply, deeply in awe! For me, mothering has been my greatest source of pride and my most rewarding and important experience in life. This issue of FOLKLIFE is a masterpiece. Bravo to you!

What a pleasure! First, the pungent smell as I unwrapped the package. Then, the weight and feel of the paper in my hands; the visual satisfaction of the matte finish. The beautiful and evocative photographs. The heartfelt words and soul deep stories. Affirming. Recognizing. Thank you!!!

Mindy Joseph, Gabriola Island, Canada

Privileged to have come across the first FOLKLIFE magazine which sent me to Galiano Island where I was privileged to stay for a week + hike every day + was even privileged enough to have dinner at @pilgrimme_rest !

Brooke Smith, Los Angeles, USA

This is just such a beautiful magazine. The content, the photography, and the quality--right down to the feel of the paper--just stunning. Thank you for pushing to make it happen, in these different and challenging times, because your efforts have brought a lot joy to people, including me.
