  • Hi Mr X stitch
    My name is Heather Zeale and I work for Artworks MK in Great Linford, I’m coordinating a Heritage crafts project here at the moment and was wondering if there might be an opportunity for us to work with you.

    Would it be possible to meet up at some point? I am planning on coming along to your event at the gallery on the 3rd Jan so maybe we could have a chat then. It would be great to work with you, particularly as you are Milton Keynes based.

    I look forward to hearing from you
    Kindest Regards
    Heather

    Hi,

    I joined Weave, just under 2 weeks ago. I am an accountant in real life, and have not had a chance to sign back in since. Just tried to sign in and I get a message that cookies are switched off and I cannot sign in. They are not switched off and the computer is the same as it was when I joined. What’s wrong? The remember me cookie worked for my password.

    Thanks.

  • What happened to this post? (www.mrxstitch.com/ghost-embroidery-machine-deconstructing-distortion- digitizing/)

    I was looking forward to reading more about digitizing (especially from this author), but all I get is a 404 error when I hit that link. Any chance it’ll be up on the blog again soon?

    Hi Mr. X Stitch
    Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Katherine Diuguid and I am an Assistant Professor of Art+Design at North Carolina State University. My studio work and research focuses on hand embroidery (especially metal embroidery) and hand dressmaking. I love your website and all you are doing to promote contemporary stitching!
    I am writing in regards to your lectures and workshops. Could you email me more information or could we set up a time to call/skype/facetime/etc. to discuss the possibilities in more detail? I look forward to hearing from you!
    Thank you,
    Katherine

  • Laura says:

    Hi, I went to your last night you held at drink shop do and wanted to do the sugar skull pattern but the pieces of fabric were too small. I’m going to come again this Monday, would it be possible for you to bring a bigger piece of the fabric which would fit that design on if I give you the extra money for it? As I don’t know where I can get it near me and don’t know how big I need it! Looking forward to Monday :)

    • Mr X says:

      Hi Laura,
      Nice to hear from you. I’ll make sure top bring some more bits of aida with me so we can find a way to get what you need. See you next week!

  • Doris says:

    I am interested in purchasing the cat in pocket design so I can embroidery them on my shirts. Do you sell the pattern and how much? Thank you. Doris

      Hi Doris,
      We don’t actually make that design, but if you look at the links in the post, you should be able to find the person that does. Good luck! :)

  • Hello Jamie
    I am writing regarding a social sewing event that I organise.
    The event is held once a month in the St. Martins area of Leicester and is an exciting mix of sewing related speakers, mini workshops and other sewing related activities.
    A platform for relevant businesses and charities to raise their profile, a resource for both businesses and customers and above all a fun night out!
    The idea for the event came from a flippant comment and has amazingly spiraled into a hugely popular event. So far the event has attracted between 50 – 150 attendees each time.
    I am now looking to take the idea further and would like to bring in speakers who have made a success of a career in the industry and would bring some work to show the audience and talk about their journey in the industry followed by Q&A.
    It would be fantastic if you would consider taking part in this way. If you would be interested I would love to hear from you.

    These are links to my blog where I write a diary entry of each event and the facebook page which we recently started. I hope these give a feel of the event.

    I was on Pinterest and saw a graph that was in your magazine Dec 2012 called Spread your wings. It’s angel wings and I love it. I’m in the U.S. and would love this graph. Is this possible. How can I get it?

    thanks much

  • Valerie Zimmerman says:

    I saw a graph called Spread your wings on Pinterest. On the bottom it said Cross Stitcher 2012. Which lead me to you. Any idea how i can get that graph. It’s amazing. I appreciate your help so far and am grateful for a reply.

    Many blessings,
    Valerie Zimmerman

  • Valerie Zimmerman says:

    thanks, I posted there. hopefully someone will have that graph and be willing to share it with me.

  • Mary Goodman says:

    Hi Mr. xstr,
    In the October issue of Cross Stitcher you talked about stitching on the train. I live in a small town
    in Arizona, USA. we travel between 50 and 100 miles to bank and shop. I don’t stitch because
    I am afraid of sticking myself with the needle due to the movement of the vehicle. From time
    to time I knit or crochet while traveling.
    I enjoy your page in the magazine and am very interested in your stitching world.
    Sincerely,
    Mary Goodman

  • Hi Jamie!

    Yes, Tis your friendly, leg grabbing stalker from Margate here! Didn’t get to say goodbye yesterday, so just wanted to thank you ever so much again for generously giving up your time to give me advice and inspiration. I appreciate it no end and I will not forget your kindness. If you do end up near my neck of the woods, give me a shout and I will buy you tea and cake as a thank you! It is the least I could do. I really hope to see you again sometime, keep up the brilliant work and thanks so so much again, I am so grateful.
    Take care, Stacey x
    Ps. I will also send you a bit of copy and pictures of some work as and when I can organise myself in case it is of interest-yet another great tip! Thank you!

  • Jane Lambert says:

    Hi Mr Stitch,

    I have registered for your newsletter sometime ago and went in to update in case I had my details wrong. I never get a newsletter from you??? Do you send the newsletter often? I do go to your web site often but would love to get the newsletter so would love you to check at your end as to why I don’t receive it.

    Yours in stitching and creating and thanks.
    Jane

    • Mr X says:

      Hi Jane,
      It’s not you, it’s me. :)
      At the moment I’m struggling to find the capacity to curate a good newsletter, but I’m getting rid of other workloads at a pace, so hope to get back on it soon.
      You can subscribe to the RSS feed on the site to keep up with all the goodies in the mean time: https://feeds.feedblitz.com/MrXStitch
