Welcome...

Aurifil ThreadsThe Summer months are finally here! And where better to go when the weather is stunning but the seaside? This issue features a multitude of marvellous makes based around seascapes, from a coral reef on the seabed to a lighthouse disappearing into the summer sky. Other projects include a handy encrusted calico bag for your shell collecting, a lovely little shell-inspired case for your embroidery scissors, a sparkling seaside sunset scene and a beautiful beach wall-hanging that could easily be made into a tablet cover! The fun doesn't stop there however, as we have some fabulous features for you this issue. Our Focus On series is continuing, this time with hints and tips from incredible embroiderers Emma Frith and Jessica Long on... silk shading! Seeing as we're focusing on the sea, we've got a special feature in which Stitch readers and other established embroiderers offer their advice on how to create water in embroidery, a notoriously difficult element to stitch. You can also read a heartfelt interview from Amanda Hisplop, who creates textile art from her sketches. This edition is awash with our other regular features too, including an exciting Distance Learning update from Sally McCollin that gives you all an exclusive early look at where the courses are headed next. We of course have news including some shocking button-related information!, your letters and social comments, the latest crafty tools to shop for and a spectacular reader gallery based "On the Beach". We think this summer issue is really "swell"; you're "shore" to love it! Until next time, when we cool down with some gorgeous greats of the Natural World.
