Inspirations Magazine

Hello everyone

Hope this finds you well and you are enjoying your summer holidays?

It always gives me a little thrill when I receive the email that tells me my new issue of Inspirations magazine has arrived!  As you probably know this is the world’s premier embroidery magazine from Australia and they are about to celebrate their 100th issue!  I have been subscribing to and contributing projects to Inspirations for about 20 years now and it just keeps getting better and better.

Although I have loved receiving the print copy in the past, our postal system to South Africa has become so unreliable that I opted for the digital subscription instead.   The digital subscription means I don’t have to wait for it to arrive in the post and I can download it to my Ipad and read it from the comfort of my armchair.  (sometimes I sneak a read on my computer when I am supposed to be working)…….. Reading it this way allows me to browse through the pages easily and to zoom in on the little details.

There is a printable PDF provided for each project so you can print out the pattern and trace the outline, so clever!  Each issue is packed full of inspiring articles and there are so many beautiful projects to choose from, something for everyone.  I especially love reading the feature article and being kept informed on what is going on in the embroidery world, both past and present.  I feel privileged to be included in some of their editions and was especially honoured to be asked to contribute to their 100th anniversary edition which promises to be an exceptional issue – so look out for it.

You can find details on subscribing or purchasing a single copy here, and you can also purchase back issues and kits from the magazines while you are there.

Till next time, wherever you are in the world, keep smiling and happy stitching.

Trish
