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
For a dash of early spring colour, you can’t beat the March/April issue of Embroidery magazine. Bursting with vitality, this issue brings you face to face with everything from Hikaru Noguchi’s beautiful art darning to Barbara Franc’s three-dimensional textile pet portraits.
And we hope you’re not squeamish… Our cover story comes courtesy of Annemieke Mein and her retrospective exhibition in Australia, a celebration of 60 years of exacting textile works depicting the nation’s flora and fauna.
Elsewhere, the poignant stories of women struggling with motherhood are caringly told by Ali Ferguson, using stitched text juxtaposed with vintage crisp white children’s dresses.
We also profile Sue Dove and her abstracted, highly decorative portraits; Outi Pieski, whose fringed artworks are on show at Tate St Ives in Cornwall; and Frieda Toranzo Jaeger whose life-sized cars and spaceships are embroidered with Pre-Columbian stitch.
