Cross-Stitch Crazy

We've gone Cross-Stitch Crazy!

This is Jamie, aka Mr X Stitch the The Kingpin of Contemporary Embroidery. he started his blog in 2008.

Mr X Stitch on a Mountain

Jamie taught himself to cross stitch on holiday.

We met Jamie last year at the Pinterest event in the lead up to Kirsty's Handmade Fair. He was using the incredible DMC Light Effects collection of embroidery thread colours in his work to amazing effect. He is a real artist, a true enthusiast and a lovely warm, easy person to talk to- good to know! We sent him a little Dandelyne hoop and a stitch-able bracelet made from leather from our new ranges. He came up with something completely unique and we can't wait to see what he does next. Go Buy some stuff from I-Beads Jamie's original and quirky take on embroidery - or Manbroidery - encompasses visual puns and risque themes as well as the more mundane, always offering an unexpected twist on embroidery and handicraft tropes.

We have Dandelyne's mini hoops here
