Inspirations Issue 106 - The Art of Stitch

Discover the creative skill and emotional power of embroidery as we showcase the art of stitch.



In this issue we showcase an exciting, world-first introduction to Chinese Random Stitch Embroidery by international teacher Margaret Lee, who has used these techniques to work a stunning, realistic pomegranate in vibrant shades of red.

We also feature figurative stumpwork for the first time with a dashing Robin Hood holding a bow and arrow by Kay Dennis.

Continue your stitching adventures with a flamboyant threadpainted hummingbird, exquisite whitework in Hardanger and Schwalm, beautiful crewel and surface embroidery worked on a linen tote or drawstring bag and delightful, dimensional woodland-themed sewing accessories.
