Exact Editions has joined up with The Embroiders’ Guild, the UK’s leading education charity promoting embroidery, to digitise the complete archive of its membership publication, Embroidery Magazine which includes the whole archive of Embroideress Magazine. Dating back to 1922, the new archive is available for individual and institutional subscriptions and is seamlessly available across web, iOS and Android devices.

Embroidery Magazine is exclusively devoted to all aspects of embroidery and stitched textiles in art, design, craft and textile culture. The publication has built a reputation for quality and integrity throughout its history, with a goal to bring its readers the latest, most exciting and innovative stitched work. Each issue features in-depth profiles, artists’ essays, and reviews of the latest textile books and exhibitions, as well as news and listings of fashion and textile exhibitions in the UK, all underpinned by inspirational photography.

“The archive is a wonderful resource for all crafts, stitch and art enthusiasts. To be able to track trends and changes within the hobby over more than 8 decades is fascinating, and the wide array of content will be enjoyed by readers around the world.”

Anthea Godrey, Artist Director of The Embroiderer’s Guild

The issues are organised in stacks to facilitate easy navigation, whether browsing on a computer or mobile device. Subscribers can search across individual issues as well as the complete archive, making the resource an ideal research tool to locate references to specific artist and topics.

The Embroiderers’ Guild is the UK’s leading education charity promoting embroidery. The organisation exists to build awareness of stitch and textile art and educates, encourages, inspires and promotes the achievement of excellence.
