A time to connect


Needle and thread refresh like no other activity! Not only do stitches join together in a satisfying way but somehow the act of sewing leaves you at one with yourself. The feeling of reconnection is bliss. With so many things unsettled, it's fair to say the soothing sense of perspective embroidery brings is needed. This issue comes packed with beautiful projects and features designed to produce a steady flow of stitching endorphins to keep you going.
