Fiber Talk with Alison Cole II

Epaulet detail from the suit of lights in Alison Cole’s collection.

Well-executed goldwork is jaw-dropping, whether you have a clue about needlework or not. It also often intimidating to needleworkers who are considering giving it a go. No need to fear. Alison Cole returns this week with a new book, “The Goldwork Masterclass,” and some words of advice that will eliminate your apprehension and give you all of the information you’ll need to have success with the technique (Pre-order pricing is in effect for a short while at Alison’s website and, for U.S. people, at the Stitching Shop in Denver). We also get to learn a good deal of goldwork history and about Alison’s goldwork-antique collection, including her amazing suit of lights. If you’re not already, you’ll be tempted to try goldwork after listing to the show.–Gary
