5.0 out of 5 stars Something Old & Something New June 28, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I don't usually write reviews but I must put in one for the defense of this title! While I understand the last reviewer's disappointment that this magazine does not include instructions, projects and patterns I want to offer my viewpoint on what I see as its merits. I am currently unable to subscribe to this journal at home because of budget restrictions but it is carried at my local art & design library and I've been reading it there. I hope to have a subscription at home eventually and I don't imagine I will ever toss the older issues out once I do! The price seems more reasonable once you consider that this title comes all the way from the UK and I think it will prove well worth the cost for anyone interested in historical textiles and/or contemporary textile art. The eloquent articles are illustrated with high-quality photographs that make it a pleasure both visually and textually. I ADORE this magazine for the way it weaves together past and present. The work included comes in a variety of styles but across the board I am always impressed with the craft of the maker and their unique use of needlework and embroidery skills. As an artist, a crafter and a generally curious person I have found every issue of this journal inspiring. Often I even return to re-read the back issues that the library has archived while I wait for the new issue to arrive. Please do not dismiss it before you have had a chance to hold an issue in your hands and investigate for yourself! Sample articles can be found on the guild's website at the address below. You can also view a table of contents for the current issue. However be warned the images do not appear as nice in the PDFs as they are in real life.

1.0 out of 5 stars find a copy first to look at January 16, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I saw this magazine advertised in a magazine along with several other magazines on sewing and embroidery, etc. As I live in a small town, I asked my son who lived in a large city to see if he could find any individual copies for me so I could see if they were the type of magazines I was interested. Embroidery magazine in particular didn't have much of a blurb with it to know what to expect. Well he bought me a subscription as a Mother's Day gift and as you can see it is a fairly pricey magazine. When I got my first issue from the UK I wanted to cry. Instead of projects, stitches to learn, etc. It was full of news stories and not even particularly about embroidery. It was more a needlecraft news magazine, sort of. It wasn't even about good news stories but more avant-garde type It was hard to really figure out what it was. I did find out that they published a sister magazine that I had seen called Stitches and I emailed the company asking if my subscription could be transferred to the other magazine or please refund the money back to my son as the Embroidery magazine was of no interest to me at all. I love sewing, quilting, embroidery magazines of all types, so say I didn't like one means to me it is pretty bad. My recommendation is find a copy to see first before paying the big bucks for the subscription. You may thank me later.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent artist's trade publication December 7, 2013
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I was a little shocked to see the negative reviews for this title, but I can see where those reviewers are coming from--this is NOT a magazine for patterns, or for learning to embroider. If you're looking for a book that will give you new projects to try, look elsewhere.

That said, as a textile artist this magazine is absolutely lovely. One of my art professors saved her old copies for a year and passed them on to me, and I am in love with them--if I could afford to subscribe I would. This magazine is largely devoted to features on current embroidery/textile artists, with information on current events/exhibitions (in the UK, so not as useful for those of us in the states). Good if you're an artist looking for new inspiration or to keep current in the field--and presumably even better if you're a UK artist with access to the shows advertised.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not specifically an embroidery magazine... July 2, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This is primarily a 'trade' publication, with news articles, along with art show evaluations, and product reviews on things pertaining to the art of sewing. If you're looking for embroidery patterns and ideas, this is not the magazine to offer those things... I was very disappointed when I received my first issue, I should have read the review/s... I won't be renewing my subscription.
