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.
