March/ April 2023

Add a little colour to your life with the latest issue of Embroidery magazine.

  • Our cover shows the highly skilled work of embroiderer Amanda McCavour and you can read more about her exquisite specimen-like embroideries in a six-page feature inside.
  • From Mexico, the duo Celeste bring us monumental textiles dyed in warm hues, based on the country’s long history of muralism.
  • We look inside the pages of the evocatively-named book An Indigo Summer, about a mother and daughter sharing grief one summer while they dyed with indigo in their garden.
  • In Fresh Talent, meet Willemien Downes-Wechgelaer and her kaleidoscopic works.
  • From New Zealand, we profile two exceptionally bright individuals, Lissy and Rudi, whose theme colours are neons. Someone pass the sunglasses please.
  • Meanwhile, in April in Paris, we tell you how you can go on a Textile Tour of Paris (much like the film Mrs Harris Goes to Paris) in the incredibly skilled hands of former haute couture embroiderer Rebecca Devaney.
  • We catch up, too, with David Morrish after he appeared on the TV show Make it to Market on BBC One. On a high after the filming, what was to happen next was to give him one of the biggest lows of his life.
  • In First Person, Rezia Wahid tells us how she imbues her woven works with her feelings about pregnancy and motherhood.
  • We also meet Embroiderers’ Guild member Lesley Woods, who reveals what came next when she inherited a box of her mother’s threads.
  • Finally, Queen Bee Esme Young, presenter of the BBC’s The Great British Sewing Bee, lets us go behind the scenes to visit her sewing room in Hackney. What did we find?
