The Excellent Exploits of Mr X Stitch – Spring Knitting & Stitching Show 2014!

Today I’m recovering from the four day Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, where I hosted an Inspiration Station in partnership with Young Embroiderers.

I was blessed with a heap of fantastic volunteers, many of whom were students from the Royal School of Needlework, who took time out to help teach cross stitch to people of all ages (many thanks to Floss & Mischief, Sasha and Margaret for their personal efforts).

We had De Denne Competition entries on the walls, and the world’s longest embroidery drooping around all over the place, with people adding their marks to it.

All in all it was a fantastic experience. Saturday was great as I got to have two manbroidery superheroes joining me on the stand – Lord Libidan and Spike Dennis were, needless to say, very popular.

Thanks to Upper Street Events for having me on board, big love to Toft Alpaca, Silk Felt Collective, Jane Greenoff, Sue Stratford and the Braid Society for good company. I hope that everyone who came along enjoyed themselves and look forward to doing more of the same next year!
