Hmm.  I read the Spellcoats first and it may have come out in the US 
before the others.  I hadn't realized it was later in publication order 
in the UK.  It didn't spoil the others for me.  The one I really love of 
the four is Crown of Dalemark.  It occurs to me I haven't seen much 
mention of the quartet on this list.  Why is that?

I've been trying to remember what was my first DWJ.  It might have been 
Charmed Life or the Power of Three, but I'm really vague.  I always 
liked DWJ and slowly accumulated all her books, but it's only in the 
last 10 or so years that I've realized how amazing she was.  I think I 
had to grow up enough to perceive the layers in her books that I could 
not see before.  Farah's book blew me away, disentangling more of those 
layers that I'd never really been able to see.  Thanks, Farah!
