‘Contact’ Magazine May 2020 Edition

I’m thrilled my tiny piece of embroidery has appeared in the May 2020 edition of The Embroiderers’ Guild ‘Contact’ magazine. The piece for The Embroiderers’ Guild challenge ‘NHS – Reasons to be Thankful’ is lace mounted onto card and is 4 inches square. All the pieces will be collated to make large artworks for hospitals across the UK.

I create my own embroidery under the name of Catherine Hill Textile Artist.

Have you submitted work too? Leave a message below and let me know.

It’s the second piece I’ve submitted to the Guild this year. My previous piece was for The Embroiderers’ Guild Members’ Challenge. The topic was “My Favourite Things”. My piece was called “The Sound of the Kenwood Chef”.

Covid – 19 Update

Dear Friends,

I hope this finds you all well and in good spirits.

As you may already know, in light of the recent global events, all textile events and exhibitions in the UK have been postponed at least until the Autumn.  As these were the main way I met and chatted to the artists which I include in my videos this means I will be making some changes to my uploads for the next few months.

Fortunately, I have a selection of videos waiting for editing for my ‘Meet The Artist’ series which I will upload once they are ready.  I am working on ways to capture virtual interviews with some artists which I hope to bring to you as the year progresses.

I have plans for a number of free tutorials and projects to help us stay creative and maybe learn a new skill or two.  I am also excited to be in the final stages of a number of kits based on my own designs which I will be releasing on my newly designed website very soon.  Make sure you register for the mailing list so you’ll be one of the first to know!

Your continued support is greatly appreciated particularly in these challenging times for all of us and don’t forget to take a stroll through the playlists on my Channel and rediscover some favourites or maybe something you missed first time.  The Channel and Website (old design for now) links are below – please feel free to share with friends and grow our community.
