This Issue
Maggie Grey


Welcome to Workshop on the Web, a publication exclusive to the internet, featuring the very best tutors from all points of the compass, giving step-by-step details of textile techniques and ideas for using those techniques creatively. Machine embroidery, hand stitching, mixed media work - you'll find it all here. We review books and products and keep you in touch with all that's new.

Undecided? We have provided a taster issue of Workshop on the Web which is entirely free and unrestricted. To view it, click the free taster button below (or Taster at the top of the page). Future issues can be accessed by subscribers through a password. We promise that each issue will have at least seven workshop features, an interview with a well-known embroiderer plus other articles of general interest. Also, products - not just what's new but how to use them, book reviews, news and views. Add all this together and it's far more than a magazine - more like getting a new book four times a year. All for 20.00 pounds for a whole year's subscription (about $30). Even more reason to sign up.

Thank you for your support - we were delighted with the response. You have raised £1337 - it will do so much good for youngsters whose lives have hardly begun. Any unsold books will be offered for sale on our stand at Craft4Crafters, Exeter, in January.
