Read about Tudor needlework in the latest AIM online magazine

In the August issue of Artisans in Miniature online magazine, there is an article by me on Tudor needlework which you might like to take a look at – it starts on page 60.

Here is a sneak peek at the article – the wallhangings shown are two from my range of Tudor wallhangings kits for doll’s houses, each stitched on 22 count canvas with Anchor stranded cotton. They are available from my website.

The AIM magazine is FREE, has 103 pages, and is packed with articles on all kinds of miniatures and related topics. This month’s issue has the theme of the Tudor era, so apart from the 5 page article by me, there is an interesting article on how to dress a twelfth scale Tudor woman doll, too, as well as other articles on village life, show reports, and what’s new in the world of miniatures, for instance.

The magazine also has the first in a series of three articles on miniature needlework – this article focusses on all kinds of needlework for babies and the nursery, so there are gorgeous photos of tiny crocheted baby dresses, knitted toys less than an inch high, and so on. It’s really worth a look!

Some of my miniature needlepoint wallhangings appear in the magazine this month, such as the Cluny Women tapestry, which is available on my website as a kit, to be stitched on 22 count canvas with Anchor stranded cotton. When completed, it measures 4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches high. The kit includes ribbon to make the tabs, and a pole to hang it from.

There is also an interesting article about blackwork embroidery, and in that article my Blackwork sampler kit is featured. The sampler kit comes with 28 count evenweave fabric, and a stained and varnished wooden frame to put the stitching in when it’s finished.
