New Digital Pattern | Threads of Time
29th March 2019
If you don’t have a complete collection of Inspirations Magazines and wonder what it looks like, it’s something like this:
The issues that we’ve highlighted in red are #1 through to #41 and are unique because they don’t have flat spines so you can’t read the issue number or the list of projects inside without pulling them out and flicking through them. They are what you might call the ‘Golden Oldies’.
When you do take the time to get out a Golden Oldie, it’s like an Aladdin’s Cave and you get lost in a world of needlework that is as timeless as it is beautiful.
Over the coming weeks we’re releasing a few of these Golden Oldie projects as digital patterns, starting right now with the piece ‘Threads of Time’ by Yvette Stanton from issue #38.

Hardanger, a historic Norwegian embroidery used for decorative borders on traditional costumes, is often seen on table linen.
Here Yvette’s crisp, neat doily combines the foundational hardanger techniques of cutwork and counted thread work with surface embroidery.
