Embroidery magazine is exclusively devoted to all aspects of embroidery and stitched textiles in art, design, craft and textile culture.
The magazine has built a reputation for quality and integrity over the years. Our goal is to bring you the latest, most exciting and innovative stitched work – we interview the artists, educators, curators and designers who matter, showcasing their talent as well as reporting on trends.
In each issue you will find in-depth profiles, artists’ essays, and reviews of the latest textile books and exhibitions, as well as news and listings of fashion and textile exhibitions in the UK, all underpinned by inspirational photography.
Embroidery is published six times a year in January, March, May, July, September and November. It is available on subscription and enjoyed by creative people with an interest in creative, innovative stitched work and textiles.
The Embroideress was a quarterly magazine published by Pearsall and Company and the Old Bleach Linen Company from 1922 until 1939. The Embroideress published articles by a new generation of embroidery teachers who were leading the way in terms of creativity in stitching. Illustrations were black and white, with some colour plates. The magazine contained current designs, reviews of books and current embroidery exhibits, information on embroidery from different countries, articles about historical textiles or collections, and different embroidery techniques.
Fiona Gill is the artist behind our cover girl, Bryony. From a chance meeting, Fiona embroidered this beautiful portrait, paving the way for a shift-change in her work. Elsewhere in the magazine, from the fresh talent of Yu Mei Huang, and her experimental works, to the established favourite Mister Finch, who lets us into his magical studio world, this is an issue packed with interest. Meet Lucy Newman, the winner of the Textile Art Open category in the Hand and Lock Prize for Embroidery 2022 and find out what direction her work is going in now. Discover the humorous needle-felted characters by Kate Toms; meet the group Prism Textiles; and marvel over the joyful and culturally rich textiles of Saima Kaur. One very special article looks at how Jane Walkley is basing her weaving on Sunny Bank Mills, Leeds – it’s nothing if not unconventional; while Richard Saja reveals his work with toile du jouy, which has often been labelled ‘subversive’. And with the coronation fresh in our mind, we take an in-depth look at goldwork, with Robert Ossant describing its uses in history and Laura Baverstock revealing her modern take on this age-old technique.
