A while back, darlingcompanion asked if anyone new of any good embroidery magazines that were a bit edgy.
I came across Fiberarts magazine last summer and was blown away by an article on embroidery artist Anna Torma who won Best of Show last year (2005) at Quilt National. (www.annatorma.com) Her work is very inspiring and she is quite a prolific embroidery artist.
Fiberarts magazine bills itself as "Contemporary Textile Art and Craft". While it is not "edgy" it is definitely contemporary and artsy and VERY INSPIRING. There are NO ducks in bonnets or holly hobbies in this magazine!
I just today got the April/May issue and the cover story is "Growing as an Artist -- life after school, marketing your work, gallery know-how". There is also an article on embroidery artist Pat dipuala Klein.
I highly recommend this magazine. You can check it out online at www.fiberarts.com.
