Hello everyone, hope your week is going well. We continue to do battle with power cuts but we have managed to get up to date with shipping orders so your embroidery goodies are on the way.

Inspirations Magazine

Issue 105 of Inspirations magazine features my Hummingbird & Flower project on the front cover – I feel very honored, thank you Inspirations! The issue has shipped to subscribers & is now also available for purchase at retail outlets. So if you would like your own copy you can purchase either the magazine in print or download a digital copy at Inspirations Studios online.

Inspirations Magazine is the world’s premium embroidery magazine, edited and published in Australia by Inspirations Studios. I am sure many of you are already subscribers but if not you may like to consider a digital subscription to save on shipping costs? It is a real treat to receive this bi-monthly magazine in your inbox.

This issue features elegant and timeless projects that are simply irresistible. There are lots of beautiful projects included to inspire and wet your appetite. There is a Goldwork masterpiece by Alison Cole, exciting designs by new contributors Cynthia Jackson and Georgina Bellamy, a Japanese-style bead embroidery by Margaret Lee and a superb, small Blackwork cushion, by new contributor Christine Burton. There is a delightful embroidered blanket by Yvonne McMillan Betts and intriguing botanical embroidery by Gary Clarke.


As you know about 18 months ago, I had to discontinue the production of kits due to time limitations, but the good news is that last year I signed an agreement with Inspirations Studios to license and sell some of my patterns as kits. These are now available exclusively from Inspirations and can be shipped worldwide. They are beautifully compiled and include only the finest materials including my Premium Belgium linen. You can find these kits for sale here.

Gutermann Threads

Please accept my apologies for a slight error in the Love Of Wrens pattern with regards the use of outline threads. The digital pattern has been amended and an amendment has been included in the Inspirations kit. You can download the updates here.

Miniature Needle Painting Book

You can find a list of DMC substitutes for the Gutermann outline threads formerly used in this book here.

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