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.

Latest issue

Add a little colour to your life with the latest issue of Embroidery magazine. Our cover shows the highly skilled work of embroiderer Amanda McCavour and you can read more about her exquisite specimen-like embroideries in a six-page feature inside. From Mexico, the duo Celeste bring us monumental textiles dyed in warm hues, based on the country’s long history of muralism. From New Zealand, we profile two exceptionally bright individuals, Lissy and Rudi, whose theme colours are neons. Someone pass the sunglasses please. Meanwhile, in April in Paris, we tell you how you can go on a Textile Tour of Paris (much like the film Mrs Harris Goes to Paris) in the incredibly skilled hands of former haute couture embroiderer Rebecca Devaney. Finally, Queen Bee Esme Young, presenter of the BBC’s The Great British Sewing Bee, lets us go behind the scenes to visit her sewing room in Hackney. What did we find? There is so much more to read in this issue, it’s one to dip into over time, with reviews of exhibitions, some of our favourite books, sewing holiday courses, news, what’s on and, of course, Embroidery Loves – who features? You’ll have to take a look.
