Through Our Hands, Issue #5

In the past, I have posted links to the British magazine Through Our Hands, which showcases contemporary stitched textiles, print, painting and mixed media.

While the first four issues were available free on-line, the magazine has developed to the point that the latest issue is being sold for a very reasonable £3, or roughly $6 Canadian.

The cover of the current issue shows one of the sensitive renderings in embroidery by Jenni Dutton, who lovingly documented her mother's decline in a series of stitched portraits, in the account "Jenni Dutton: The Dementia Darnings".

I enjoyed the profiles of artists Sue Stone, Margaret Ramsay, Mary Beth Schwartzenberger and Sandra Meech. The issue is loaded with high-quality colour images and includes informative ads.

You can access a free sampling of the magazine's contents here or purchase the 68-page download here.

It is an excellent magazine and I'm not surprised they have started charging as so much work goes into each issue. I'm heading off to see their latest exhibition on Wednesday.
