Enjoy the summer with Embroidery magazine

In the July/August issue of Embroidery magazine, we visit the beach through the work of Jane Colquhoun and Capucine Bourcart. From her Swanage sewing room, Jane Colquhoun has a view of the sea and coastal influences inspire her. After joining the experimental textile group seam collective, her work changed course with several series of intriguing small figures occupying her practice, including the stunning image featured on our cover. Similarly, US-based artist Capucine Bourcart has an experimental approach to art, using sand alongside embroidery.

Elsewhere, we preview the Harewood Biennial, meet a Japanese embroiderer whose practice is built around vegetables, delve inside a book that explores the connection between brain, manual dexterity and craft, and peek inside Vanessa’s Marr’s sewing room.

We bring you two tributes to the much-missed Louise Gardiner, whose beautiful work leaves a lasting legacy, and Christine Chester, whose quilt honouring the unnamed women embroiderers who have gone before will be part of a retrospective at the Festival of Quilts.

Also looking back, Julie Cockburn’s work combines retro photography with embroidered interventions, while Angela Knapp highlights the Red List birds of the Somerset Levels, which could be lost in her lifetime.

Fresh talent features US-based Kaylie Kaitschuck who imbues her work with considerable energy, while Instagrammer Megan Zaniewski surprises and delights in equal measure with thoroughly modern nature-inspired stumpwork.

We have all the regular features you love, from Embroidery Loves… to Take 5 books and Out and About, so we hope you enjoy the summer with Embroidery magazine.
