RIP Erica Wilson

One of the major lights in the embroidery world – Scottish born designer, teacher and inspiration Erica Wilson passed away this week. She was 83.  The Telegraph has a lovely online obituary.

I have several of her books on my shelf, and in reading them for fun last year I found the answer to “how to transfer that huge design onto my shower curtain” question that I’d been annoyed about! I’m still looking for a source for tapes of her television show, Needleplay.

Rest in Peace, Erica. You’ve earned it.

  1. It’s very sad, isn’t it. I was just reading her Wikipedia entry.

    I’ve got a question for you – she wrote “Craft of silk and gold thread embroidery and stump work. (1973)”.
    Which sent my ears a’quivering.

    I’ve searched on the Net with absolutely no results on contents/a review. Do you have it? (email me?)
