Inspirations Issue 107 - Stitching Serenity

Take time out and relax with the tranquil stitching featured in this issue.



Discover Catherine de’ Medici embroidery, a soothing Italian technique, new to Inspirations, that only uses one fabric, one thread and one needle.

Surround yourself with gentle scenes and captivating items you can enjoy using every day.

For a splash of harmonious colour, try threadpainting with cotton or wool threads, story-telling surface and raised embroidery, enchanting crewelwork, or try your hand at a charming stumpwork design.
