STITCH with the Embroiderers’ Guild brings you traditional embroidery techniques and also a wealth of creative contemporary ideas.
Through how-to-do-it projects and articles from many of the world's leading embroidery tutors and designers, get STITCH-ing and discover contemporary free-machine embroidery (worked with the foot off the machine and the feed teeth lowered) and explore traditional techniques like canvaswork, goldwork, crewelwork, stumpwork, blackwork and Hardanger.
Our mixed media projects combine stitching with all sorts of materials and techniques – papers, computer printing, slashing and burning (with a soldering iron or hot air tool) and metals (the inside of tomato puree tubes are golden and great to stitch into) – the list is endless and the only restriction is your imagination.
