For the Love of Puzzles
We started Piecework after discovering the joy and satisfaction that come from working on a puzzle. Not only do jigsaws have the power to bring people together, they’re entirely gratifying to complete on their own. And we believe that they deserve as much consideration as all of the other objects in our lives. We set out to make puzzles that are just as enjoyable to look at as they are to compose.
Savor the Moment
The name Piecework is a nod to the importance of the process — it’s about fitting something together by hand, working it through, piece by piece — instead of the outcome. Whether working alone or at a gathering of friends, we see puzzles as a means to slow down, connect, and live in the present.
We discovered our love of puzzles by accident. Burned out from work and seeking an antidote to the “always on” nature of today’s world, we booked a rental cabin for a quick escape. But, when we arrived, we found ourselves rained in for the entire long weekend. With no phone service and nothing to do, we turned to a closet of old jigsaw puzzles only to find they offered the rest and relaxation we had been looking for in the first place. A few years — and many shared puzzles — later, Piecework was born. We hope you’ll join us and see just how much pleasure can be found in a good puzzle!
