Embroidery Magazine

March 2024 – April 2024


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.

Treat yourself to a copy…
