Stitch with the Embroiderers' Guild

The latest issue has just arrived, and it is full of stitching treats! I particularly like the chocolates - what a brilliant idea as a gift for someone on a diet, unless it makes them drool for the real thing of course! A yo-yo maker is used to create the fabric circles used in this project, and I've just ordered a few.

There are also projects on canvaswork, creating an embroidery from a favourite painting, using lace to make a beautiful bag, and a seaside treasure. With more projects, articles on exquite historical embroidery and more contemporary pieces, work from Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn plus information and news, this is an excellent issue.

Quilting Arts

This month's Quilting Arts has a travel theme. There is a free machine project, map collage, resits from the kitchen (mashed potato flakes?!), colouring calico (muslin in the US), architectural design inspiration, thermofax printing, finding time to create whilst on the move, more on metal embellishment, ideas for mounting a group exhibition - don't forget I can help with that - plus artist profiles and lots more.
