Mr X Stitch brings Showtime Snippets

Showtime Snippets sweeps together all kinds of titbits from the interwebs into this handy digest for you. If you’re a stitch/textile artist, hopefully these snippets will help you find shows and exhibit!


Mr X Stitch - the world's best embroidery and needlecraft site. Est 2008 At Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with a fantastic array of authors, who take time to share their corner of the world of stitch with us. In honour of our sixth birthday, we’re sharing six posts from as many of our team as possible! Check these guys out!

We’ve got a couple of recent recruits to the Mr X Stitch family who are bringing a nice bit of attitude in their approach to the world of stitch. I’m talking about Kate Blandford and Jess “Loadofolbobbins” Taylor.

Focusing on deviantArt and Etsy respectively, these two have unearthed some terrific finds and their enthusiasm for the subject is infectious!

Here’s three of the best from both of my stitchy sharpshooters! Click on the image to visit the original post!

It's another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch - the home of contemporary embroidery

Despite being the Kingpin of Contemporary Embroidery and running the world’s best contemporary embroidery and needlecraft site for the past six years, I’m pretty useless at sharing the work that I do.

You can see most of my stitcheries, among other things, at my Flick photostream, but here’s something new for you.


Mr X Stitch - Nevermind - Cross Stitch

This is Nevermind.

Mr X Stitch - Nevermind - Cross Stitch

It’s 15876 stitches, 9 inches square and I think it’s pretty cool.

I have to thanks Imposter75 for her help in making this project happen. :)

Mr X Stitch is 6

I Heart Mr X Stitch

Hi everyone, Jamie aka Mr X Stitch here. Today is the sixth birthday of this site and I’m going to take a moment for some reflection and thanks.

First of all, thanks to all of you, dear readers, for joining me on this journey. Mr X Stitch has grown from being a simple blog with my witterings about life and stitchery to something that is becoming profound. With over 3750 posts featuring all manner of amazing embroidery, it’s become a terrific resource for fans of embroidery, professionals and students. I could not be more proud. Check out this lineup!

Mr X Stitch Schedule 2014

We’ve got a great array of columns for your enjoyment these days, covering pretty much all the embroidery bases. We’ve got specialised columns from some terrific authors, all of whom bring magic to their field:

Thanks to our friends and sponsors, Urban Threads and Kreinik Threads we’ve got Gear Threads and Kreinik Calling, both of which show their creative skills and share behind-the-scenes from the embroidery industry.

And now we have a new group of young guns, including Leigh BowserKate Blandford, Jess “Loadofolbobbins” Taylor, Madeline Scharpf and Kim Searle as well as Digitizing Don, Erich Campbell, bringing you new content from different corners of the world.

I’m so proud of the team at Mr X Stitch and it’s an honour to work with all of them.

It’s been a crazy six years, but I’ve never been more excited about where we’re going. I hope you’ll enjoy the ride!
