Since establishing the Mr X Stitch site in 2008, Jamie Chalmers has been showcasing new talent in the world of textiles and stitch and has curated a number of stitch-based exhibitions in the UK and Ireland.
A stitcher for over ten years, he is an internationally exhibited artist and the curator of PUSH Stitchery, featuring 30 contemporary embroidery artists from around the world. He has also written articles for textile publications across the world, including FiberArtsNow magazine and Surface Design Journal, and is the regular columnist at CrossStitcher magazine.
He believes in the benefits of stitching, both from a relaxation and a sustainability perspective and is honoured to introduce new artists that inspire and encourage new people to take to the needle and thread.
He is available for workshops and talks. Email him for more information.
