Embroidered Treasures Revealed
26th April 2019
In Inspirations issue #102 we review the first in a series of new books that, for the first time, showcase projects from the collection of works held by the UK Embroiderers’ Guild.
Usually accessible only to Guild members, now thanks to Dr Annette Collinge, a selection of these rare and historically significant pieces has been published for us all to enjoy.
Embroidered Treasures | Flowers includes a range of styles and techniques from pieces that are all floral-inspired embroideries dating from the 16th Century through to modern day. All of the 100+ projects featured in the book include the technique used, date and place of origin, size, maker if known and a little about how it came to be in the Guild’s collection. Check out page 12 in Inspirations issue #102 for more information, or you can purchase the book from our website below.
Also available is Embroidered Treasures | Birds which as the name suggests, is another collection of pieces from the Guild curated by Dr Annette Collinge, this time with a range of stunning projects featuring birds.
