The Embroidery magazine is produced by the Embroiderers' Guild (London). It is geared towards both domestic and professional embroiderers. It was first published in 1932 with two issues per year. One of the first people to write for Embroidery was Grace Crowfoot. In 1950 Embroidery started to come out four times per year and then in 1996 the number of issues was increased to six issues per year.  

Embroidery includes a wide range of features, taken from the world of embroidery, fashion and textiles. Like many other magazines it also includes a diary of events, recent publications and so forth. In addition to items about modern embroidery trends and examples, Embroidery includes articles on historical embroideries from around the world, and historical information about various types of embroidery. It has a sister magazine, Stitch, which is geared towards inspiration rather than background details.
