The 2013 Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery

If you’ve never seen it before, celebrated embroidery studio Hand & Lock holds a contest every year to find the best and brightest in new embroidery designers for fashion. The contest used to be just for students but in recent years has grown to include open entries, and the results are always stunning. They’ve announced the top prize winners for 2013, pictured below, but really all the entries are worth a look…
