Australian Smocking & Embroidery is by far, the best of the smocking/embroidery magazines that are available today. Not only are the projects and pictures glorious, but the patterns are included with each project. Most issues offer a variety of sizes and styles for using smocking, but focus mainly on children's clothing. These magazines become valuable after time, as some issues as they are out of print, will double and triple in value. This is a much sought after magazine in the finer cloth/heirloom shops. Inside each issue, there will be a step by step lesson of a technique used in a project. Smocking and Embroidery plates abound, and you can order the kit to make the projet from Country Bumpkin in Australia.
Beautiful & Unique magazine, it's one-of-a kind
This magazine is a one-of-a-kind, it has the most unique and beautiful patterns for smocking and embroidery. Each issue offers many gorgeous infant, children's and ladies patterns. Each issue includes full-size patterns and gives complete instructions on every detail. This magazine has inspired me to create many beautiful gowns that I know will become family heirlooms.There is nothing else like it. It has become a must for my sewing library.
