This December, we’ve stitched together a variety of vibrant, mixed-media projects in the newest Sew Somerset. From functional pieces like a wire and fabric wreath by Jennifer Swift and Sunny Carvalho’s collaged cuffs, to abstract painted and stitched art by Christina Romeo and Cat Kerr’s mini quilted fanciful dresses, you’ll learn how to incorporate sewn elements into much more than fabric by way of the innovative ideas found within these pages.
Explore a memorable Designer Collection by clay artist Melanie West, and indulge in many winter-inspired jewelry creations hidden within the newest issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry. You’ll also uncover detailed tutorials on beading, enameling, and how to make beach pottery necklaces and resin trinkets. Reacquaint yourself with household names like Inez Dun, Kathy Thompson, and Kathy Combs; and join us as we welcome many artists new to the pages of Belle Armoire Jewelry, like Marcie Carroll with her unique Fidget Pendants.
Cozy up with the winter edition of Art Quilting Studio and the variety of quilted features found in every shape, style, and color. You’ll want to blanket yourself in Lorie McCown’s Artist Portfolio, and revel in our Series Showcase on Jo Morphett’s “Thread Art Silhouettes.” This issue’s got everything covered – from ocean-themed art quilts “painted” with thread and Lindsay Ostrom’s quilted, whimsical wall hanging to Terry Stegmiller’s heartfelt free-motion heart quilts and Cynthia Minoli’s serene depiction of a breathtaking fabric sunset.
The December issue of Take Ten is packed with quick and easy stamped artwork that is sure to make you swoon! From the ever-popular “clean and simple” style of card making, to cards that experiment with a combination of paint and rubber stamping, this issue has something for everyone. Find clever ideas for quick and easy gifts, as well as the return of our Masterboard department, which demonstrates a technique for shaving precious time off of your card making adventures. Be sure to pick up this issue of Take Ten, and get your New Year started off right!
From heartfelt denim hearts by Becky Shander to haunted Halloween canvases by Shannon Bundschuh, this issue of Somerset Studio Gallery has something for every type of creative mind. Cat Kerr shares a fun way to display art cards with her inspirational resin window charmers, and you’ll delight in Donna Salazar’s mixed-media collages that are full of texture. Be sure not to miss Kate Crane’s quirky and colorful art journal and unique, portrait pouches by Ella Wilson by reserving your copy today.
This winter, indulge in good food and feel-good stories with Where Women Cook. Our newest issue takes you inside the home kitchens of Ingrid Hoffman, host of “Simply Delicioso” on The Cooking Channel and New York Times best-selling author Cheryl Najafi. Travel outside of the home to visit the talented Jennifer Hart, owner of The Love Apple in Taos, New Mexico and sisters Marnie and Lydia Clark, specialty shop proprietors of Cheese Cave.
We’re unveiling brand-new features in the newest installment of Artists’ Café, including the addition of artwork from bestselling publications, Somerset Apprentice, Sew Somerset, Art Journaling, and Somerset Workshop. You won’t want to miss Hanne Matthiesen’s year of stitching project, the bright and brilliantly stitched art journal of Roxanne Padgett, or an up-close look at the portfolios of multiple top mixed-media artists.
