Through Our Hands Magazine

If you've been wondering where I've been this week the answer is in the studio, in front of the computer, with my editorial hat on putting the finishing touches to the latest Through Our Hands Magazine.

Here's the cover:

The cover shows the amazing and moving work by Jenni Dutton. This piece is part of a series entitled  The Dementia Darnings. The portraits capture her mother as dementia takes it's hold. They are powerful, emotional and exquisitely stitched. I hope you'll enjoy reading more about them.

Also in this issue is the stunning work of Sue Stone, the latest Affiliate Artist to be welcomed to Through Our Hands. You'll also find out more about the textile sculptures of Barbara Franc which are so characterful, and the work of her daughter, Laura Sindall, a skilled costume designer and maker.

Linda Seward interviews Margaret Ramsay, Terry Grant shares her love for scissors and we take a look at the work of Mary Beth Schwartzenberger who I think might be the only person I've come across who uses more French knots than Linda! 

You'll also find regular features such as Soapbox, Linda's talking about the influence of digital technology on her work and Desert Island Designs with Sandra Meech.

We've published a free 11-page preview of the magazine online including the entire Sue Stone article. I hope that'll whet your appetite for more and you'll treat yourself to the full magazine. It's available as an instant download to keep for only £3. Just click Here for the online store.

Thanks so much for continuing to support Through Our Hands!
Love Laura


  1. Got to buy it at least for the scissor article! Having a bit of a scissor problem with over 60 pairs it's nice to think I'm not alone. :-)
