Inspirations - Embroidery Magazine from Australia, Issue #120, Celebrate 30 Years!

  • $19.90

This is an Anniversary issue of the Inspirations Magazine, and, as usual, the issue is packed with the most beautiful projects in embroidery!

Inspirations Studios say about this issue: 


To celebrate 30 years of Inspirations, we asked designers to create a project incorporating some favourite elements from their own embroidery journey.

The result? Exciting dimensional work, exquisite threadpainting, meticulous goldwork and contemporary needlelace, alongside a delightful array of embroidery stitches and beading techniques.
