PieceWork Call for Submissions Spring 2020: Exploring Our Needlework Traditions
Issue after issue, PieceWork magazine uncovers the stories behind the textiles and needlework that intrigue and fascinate us. Do you have an article idea or historically inspired project to share? We are now accepting submissions for the Spring 2020 issue.
Our interest in historical needlework is constrained by neither time nor place. Help PieceWork explore the needlework traditions from around the globe, and let curiosity be your guide. Piece together the path of paisley shawls (affiliate link) from India to its popularity in Europe during the Victorian era. Instruct us on traditional methods for mending and darning (affiliate link). Whether you research the history of knitting, crochet, embroidery, tatting, or one of the many other forms of needlework, PieceWork readers want to know more!
We are looking for compelling, well-researched, visually appealing, evocative content with in-depth needlework historical connections. The submission deadline for the Spring 2020 issue of PieceWork is fast approaching; submissions are due June 6, 2019. We’d love to hear your ideas!
