Inspirations Issue 120 - Celebrate 30 Years

Celebrate 30 years of Inspirations with superb projects showcasing favourite techniques from designers including beautiful dimensional embroidery, threadpainting, needlelace and counted thread work.


Available on back-order


To celebrate 30 years of Inspirations, we asked designers to create a project incorporating some favourite elements from their own embroidery journey.

The result? Exciting dimensional work, exquisite threadpainting, meticulous goldwork and contemporary needlelace, alongside a delightful array of embroidery stitches and beading techniques.
