Somerset Workshop

Sew Somerset – The Art of Creative Sewing & Mixed-Media
More than ever before, artists are discovering the joy of combining sewing with mixed-media projects, as artists recognize that stitches are not limited just to fabrics. Machine stitching can be added to almost anything including paper, transparencies, fabric, batting, canvas, foil, paper bags, kraft paper, and so much more. For those who choose to work with more durable materials like wood, metal and clay, stitches can also be added, but usually by hand. Whether you sew by hand or machine, we invite you submit your most innovative and imaginative art projects that incorporate sewing, for this brand new special publication. Sew Somerset will feature projects of the highest caliber that Somerset Studio is known for … projects that will surely take your breath away … projects that will look “So Somerset!” In this 144-page publication, you will find beautiful photographs, easy-to-understand techniques, and a bounty of tips, ideas and inspiration. Sew Somerset will help you learn how to add stitches of varied lengths, sizes, colors, and dimension into your next art project. Deadline for artwork to be received: Bi-annually every May 15th and January 15th.

Somerset Workshop
This is a bi-annual publication that publishes stepped-out projects. If you have a technique that you think could lead a Somerset Workshop, please send a letter of interest to the Editor-in-Chief outlining your ideas. Deadline: On-going.
