In this issue, there is a distinct theme of art imitating life in many glorious forms. Take the work of our supremely talented cover star, Rachel Wright, for example. Capturing the mood, likeness and detail of a moment or scene is a real skill, but Rachel has that skill in abundance, depicting exquisite replicas of both wildlife and landscapes with aplomb.
Also in this issue: Cindy Thompson, award winning and self-taught felter who creates woolly taxidermy; Chloe Redfern takes a different approach to mimicking nature with her charming hoop art; exciting Dutch artist, Nicole Ladrak, creates still life textile paintings using several layers of textiles covered with tulle to create a background atmosphere; Stewart Kelly, a textile artist who experiments with overlaying multiple images in a style that is both reflective and expressive; Seamstress Erin, has a refreshingly modern take on the world of sewing and uses technology to her advantage in growing not only her online business but a network of sewist friends across the world; PLUS projects, news, websites, fabrics and much more to inspire you!
