The second volume of Inspirations Magazine’s Design Collective… they are celebrating Christmas in Stitch.

From Inspirations:  Introducing the second volume in The Design Collective. We asked twelve of the world’s most talented needlework artisans to each design a project to celebrate Christmas with stitch. Each designer was given the same brief. There were no rules. No guidelines. The only criteria: a connection to Christmas. The result? A fabulous range of unique responses, including ornaments and decorations for your home, special gifts and a spectacular bonbon for the Christmas table.
