Inspirations Issue 88 - Celebrate

What are you stitching for Christmas? There's nothing a needleworker loves more than to create special gifts for loved ones or, if they've been especially good, themselves!


Inspirations issue 88 is packed with gorgeous projects to stitch for this festive time of year, from elegant whitework to amazing dimensional pieces. We feature interviews with our colour hero Kaffe Fassett, Wee Felt Folk artist Salley Mavor, and the story behind an embroidered blanket for Princess Charlotte, along with embroidery news, profiles and book reviews.
