• The Embroiderers’ Guild was founded in 1906 and has in its collection embroideries from all over the world. These wonderful works, which somehow survived through the ages, could be said to be one of the most important groups of embroideries assembled in one place. Stitched pieces and fragments were gathered together by early members of the Guild and inserted into portfolios that were circulated among members.Nature has always been a huge source of inspiration to embroiderers and this fantastic book showcases the Embroiderers’ Guild’s huge collection of embroidered birds through the ages. From the subtle shades seen in crewelwork and the Buratto lace of Europe to the glittering silk, metal and beetle wing designs of China, Japan and India, author Dr Annette Collinge presents a beautiful array of stitchwork that truly is a feast for the eyes.Featuring full-colour photographs and extended captions, items are shown also in full along with detailed images to show off the stunning stitched birds at their best. These wonderful embroidered treasures are as varied as badges, postcards, aprons, wall hangings, dresses, cushion covers and samplers, some of which date back to the 17th century.Collected from many different countries, this exquisite book is an opportunity to see fabulou...

  • For nearly fifty years, sisters Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell have been at the forefront of textile design. Collections for London's Liberty department store made their name, with designs like Bauhaus (1972) deemed a significant turning point, paving the way for a vibrant new aesthetic. Their work at this point included prints, furnishing and dress textiles, and famously Liberty's noted scarves, and many of their designs were widely licenced and became ubiquitous. By the late 1970s, they had added wallpaper designs to their repertoire, and in 1979 established themselves as an independent partnership (their work for Liberty had been marketed uncredited). Their client list includes names like Yves St Laurent, habitat, and Marks & Spencer, and the quality of their work has been recognized by the V&A Museum in London (where 33 of their designs are held in the permanent collection). A long-term US association with Martex saw their patterns grace widely distributed designer bedding--which even made an appearance in Seinfeld. A successful attempt to develop their brand saw them broaden this client base, and sales in the US are now worth millions of dollars annually. All of their patterns have been preserved. Staggering in its scale (over 25,000 patterns to date) the Collier- Campbell...
