As seen in CrossStitcher! August 2012

Hi there! I’m Charlie Moorby, Commissioning Editor for CrossStitcher.

As a friend of Mr X Stitch (and total stitching addict) I want to start sharing with you all some of my favourite designs coming up in CrossStitcher.

This month, we’ve been channelling ideas from across the globe for our gloriously bright August issue.

Cross Stitcher Magazine issue 255 cover

With all eyes on the big smoke, we’re paying homage to the Olympic games with a set of miniature flags you can stitch to support your home nation.

Cross Stitcher Magazine issue 255 - flags pattern

Talking of travel, how about an exotic flamingo design to brighten up your summer. (Yeah, we know. What summer?)

Perhaps you’ve been sensible and booked yourself a trip somewhere nice and hot? Stitch yourself a patriotic red, white and blue passport cover to remind yourself of the folks back home.

Our July issue 255 hits the shelves tomorrow. Buy online at or find in all good newsagents.

Until next time…
