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

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.

Hi Meryl,
That’s really strange. I’ll go and hit the website and see if that helps.

Dying to know who won the Hand & Lock class????? Should I uncross my fingers and toes?

Hi Meta,
We had a post about it at the weekend – the lucky winner was Emily Gale. Thanks for taking part though! :)

Hi! I’m an artist (and taxi driver)in New Orleans, LA. Someone recommended your site and thought you would like my work. It’s in the “kimbroidery” section of my website. Just some mugshots and beauty queens so far….

Hello Mr X Stitch,

I have your ad rates page for 2011-2012 but need your current ad rates, as well as your specs, ie ad art size for 1/4 page ad and required res. I hope to get into your next “issue.”

Thank you!

What happened to this post? ( 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,

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 August 26, 2014 at 5:46 pm

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!
