We are delighted to be stocking Embroidery Magazine. This gorgeous magazine is published six times a year and is packed full of in-depth artist profiles, artist’s essays, reviews of the latest textile books and exhibitions, news & listings of fashion and textile exhibitions in the UK and abroad, along with inspirational images.
The magazine aims to bring you the best of embroidery and textiles, talking to makers and artists who share their passion for embellishing the surface – giving readers a unique insight into all facets of this sumptuous craft.
- The cover shows the highly skilled work of embroiderer Amanda McCavour and you can read more about her exquisite specimen-like embroideries in a six-page feature inside.
- From Mexico, the duo Celeste bring monumental textiles dyed in warm hues, based on the country’s long history of muralism.
- Look inside the pages of the evocatively-named book An Indigo Summer, about a mother and daughter sharing grief one summer while they dyed with indigo in their garden.
- In Fresh Talent, meet Willemien Downes-Wechgelaer and her kaleidoscopic works.
- From New Zealand, meet Lissy and Rudi, whose theme colours are neons. Someone pass the sunglasses please.
- Meanwhile, in April in Paris, go on a Textile Tour of Paris (much like the film Mrs Harris Goes to Paris) in the incredibly skilled hands of former haute couture embroiderer Rebecca Devaney.
- Catch up with David Morrish after he appeared on the TV show Make it to Market on BBC One. On a high after the filming, what was to happen next was to give him one of the biggest lows of his life.
- In First Person, Rezia Wahid tells how she imbues her woven works with her feelings about pregnancy and motherhood.
- Meet Embroiderers’ Guild member Lesley Woods, who reveals what came next when she inherited a box of her mother’s threads.
Finally, Queen Bee Esme Young, presenter of the BBC’s The Great British Sewing Bee, goes behind the scenes to visit her sewing room in Hackney.
