  • To celebrate 30 years of Inspirations, we asked designers to create a project incorporating some favourite elements from their own embroidery journey.

    The result? Exciting dimensional work, exquisite threadpainting, meticulous goldwork and contemporary needlelace, alongside a delightful array of embroidery stitches and beading techniques.
