The day I found it on my doorstep, I finished it for the first time — forgot all about supper and the mail... All the puzzles were done at least twice and even my brother-in-law got hooked. It is great fun to watch new people discover the pleasures you created. THANK YOU!!! —R.E., Wilmington, DE

What’s not to love about a Stave puzzle?! —E.B., Duluth, MN

We have loved the time spent with family over the years, putting together all of our different puzzles. Each Christmas season a puzzle beckons a passerby to linger awhile at the kitchen counter. Sometimes forsaking eat and sleep to find just one more piece... —R.B., Barrington, IL

So charmed by the minature jewels I received yesterday that I must order two more. They are just right with a morning cup of coffee or listening—not watching—the evening news —M.P., Bethesda, MD

Even the pieces themselves are so well made that they are nice to the touch —G.K., New York, NY

I feel I owe it to myself in my old age to buy myself one new puzzle per year! Of course if anyone cared to make me a present of others, they wouldn’t be turned down. Maybe I’ll start dropping hints now. —L.A., Los Angeles, CA
