Inspirations Magazine Issue #112

22nd October 2021

With Christmas just around the corner, many of us are starting to think about festive projects and projects to stitch during the festive season.

So, what better time to release our new issue of Inspirations magazine, #112, which is now making its way to subscribers’ mailboxes, and to stores soon thereafter.

We’ve got a fabulous array of festive projects and stunning new designs lined up for you in our Christmas 2021 issue.

Margaret Light has spoiled us with a beautiful table runner called The Holly and the Ivy featuring glittering gold thread.

Di Kirchner’s Christmas ornament, Buon Natale, is a perfect example of fine Reticella, set off with silver and pearls. And Christine P. Bishop’s Colours of Christmas is a crisp biscornu and pincushion finished in brilliant reds and greens that elegantly whisper ‘Christmas’.

Taetia McEwen’s Spring Song is a glorious, threadpainted picture of a little bird, surrounded by flowers, watching over its delicate nest. For lovers of stumpwork, Alison Cole has designed Invermay Wildflowers featuring flora from Australia.

Merrilyn Whittle has contributed Rose and Honeybee, a sparkling beaded needlebook and scissor fob adorned with bees and flowers. And Natalie Dupuis of Canada has created Bright Butterfly, a subtle and beautiful bag combining Japanese kogin embroidery with goldwork.

We know that you can never get enough of Di Kirchner, so this issue features a second of her fabulous projects – an Elizabethan Sweet Bag called Seeing Red stitched in redwork. There is also a feature about Di so you can read about her incredible journey and how she got to where she is today with her magnificent embroidery.

If all that isn’t enough, Inspirations magazine isn’t just about projects. The feature articles in issue #112 include one about Pierre Fouche who is an incredible artist and lacemaker, another about the exquisite world of Moroccan knotted buttons; and a third about a breathtaking bedspread that has taken its owner on a journey around the world.

And of course, you won’t want to miss Ansie van der Walt’s closing words in Loose Threads this time titled ‘Breathe in – Stitch out’.

‘Buon Natale’ is Italian for Good Christmas and we hope that’s exactly what’s in store for you as you enjoy 8 stunning new projects and our feature articles in Inspirations issue #112.
