This is Hem's flag store in Berlin Felicitas Hackmann 28 March 2015 On Saturday March 28, 2015, the online design furniture store Hem opened its flagship store in Berlin Kreuzberg, where some of its 350 own products are displayed. For now, the store will be the only one of its kind. Among a few others, VenutreVillage was invited to take a first look. Be*mused My first effort Five or six years ago when Anna Maria Horner's book, Seams to Me, came out, there was a flurry of interest in one particular project in the book, the Pincushion Caddy. It was popping up on many blogger 'want to make' lists but enthusiasm waned as some reported back that the pattern was nearly impossible to assemble. I was one of those who was ready to take the plunge, despite my general disdain for such projects because the thing was so darn cute ~ and looked like such a handy sewing aide. At some point, however, I backed away from the idea since I already had abandoned several such projects midway. Fast forward to several weeks ago.
Creative Gifts You know how it goes, a friend calls you and invites you to dinner at the last minute. OMG! What gift can you take?! Cross Stitch Patterns by Scarlet Quince ™ Gridding involves copying some or all of the lines on the chart to your fabric. This makes it easier to keep your place and saves time by reducing the amount of counting you have to do. There are three basic variables: what lines to grid, what to use to mark the fabric, and when to do the marking. Fan of MarketPlace wins a fair-trade quilt from MarketPlace: Handwork of India!

Cloud Duvet November 22, 2010 1:27 pm After my beloved duvet died, I looked and looked for a replacement. I settled on this Cirrus set from Anthropologie. I love white bedding. I can’t explain it. But no prints for me, just white. Cross Stitch Patterns by Scarlet Quince ™ You can hand-baste the fabric with a contrasting color of thread to mark boundaries. Some people make a grid every 10 stitches, to correspond to the dark lines on the pattern. This is particularly helpful if you are working in an area where there are large blocks of the same color. If you are stitching across rows, you probably only need vertical lines, and they can be added as you find you need them.

Planet Stencil Library.: May 2011 Crown Paint and the Royal College of Art embarked on an exciting and unique collaboration to design the Crown Jewels – modern, stylish and inspired stencils for the home. A brief was given to second year textile and fashion students at the RCA to create a decorative stencil for use in the home as a DIY ‘interior design’ tool - to be painted directly onto surfaces within the home using Crown paints. From edgy and contemporary wall art through to more traditional motifs - the results were eclectic, inspired and stunning. Northumberland partnership The Stencil Library was chosen to cut and sell the winning designs on behalf of Crown Paint. Helen Morris from the Stencil Library helped with the brief and showed some of the students how to stencil. The collaboration has spanned two years.

A Group Gathering: Collar Piece: Nancy Nicholson Bold and colourful with moreish motifs of birds, cats and fluid forms, designer & artist Nancy Nicholson's work is highly illustrative and joyful to behold. Based in Kent, Nancy works predominantly in paper and textiles using her own designs to produce stitch kits, 3d 'interactive stationary' and one-off hand & machine stitched pieces. Nancy comes from a dynasty of artists with a rich textile bent. In brief, her Father, Roger Nicholson, was a professor of fine art texiles at the Royal College of Art and her Mother, Joan Nicholson, was involved in the Needlework Development Scheme in the 1950's (you may even be familiar with Joan's work for Golden Hands magazine in the 1960s & 70s?). Both parents were involved with the 1951 Festival of Britain and between them produced a huge volume of work from paintings to wallpaper patterns.
