Bringing you all the joy and cheer one expects to find in a Christmas issue of the world’s most beautiful needlework magazine, whatever it is that you love about Christmas, we’ve got it covered.
If it’s the gold, the glitter or the sparkle, then Natalie Dupuis’ Bright Baubles, worked in Or Nué is the perfect place to start.
