Crossstitcher Magazine

No joke this time peoples, I have had my first post on the website of Crossstitcher magazine, which is the UK’s number one cross stitch magazine! I’m going to do regular articles for them about various bits and we’ll see what happens.
You can read my article, which is a bit of a manbroidery manifesto here.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, I have a new post up on the Craftster blog as well!

  • Look at you Mr. Crossy McStitcherson! Having read both the post I have a couple of questions.
    1. How many cross stitch magazines does Britain have?
    2. What is it “Brits don’t talk to strangers” or “9 out of 10 times someone asks me about it”?

  • Congratulations on all the recognition! You rock!

  • Hi Tara,
    I believe the UK has at least three or four cross stitch magazines. But my one’s the best one.

    And as for your second question.
    Now the British instinct is to avoid talking to strangers, particularly those who are big, bald and looking a bit pissed off doing stitchery on a train with an mp3 player on.
    However, if I am ever to fill the void of manbroiderers here in the UK I am going to have to be a bit elastic with the truth on occasion.

    That said, it is part of my personal journey to switch to being more proactive and friendly in engaging with strangers in these situations. But I’m up for it!

  • Very, very cool. Congrats, Jamie! It’s really nice to see a cross stitch magazine embracing areas outside of the normal patterns and things. I just might subscribe if this is an indication of where Crossstitcher is headed. 🙂

  • That is so awesome, Jamie! Big congrats!!

  • I still think you need a cross stitch tattoo for street cred. Just kidding. Congratulations and thanks for linking me.

  • AWESOMENESS!!!!!!!! Congrats!

  • Congrats!!

  • Of course yours is best! It’s got YOU! And good for you for taking on the act of proactive friendliness as part of your personal journey. I, too, am trying to be more approachable… but not too.

    “Fill the void of manbroiderers everywhere.” Beefranck, did you see this?

  • Bwhahahahahaha! How did I miss that? Thanks, Tara! ^_^

  • What?
    Dammit – why do I keep doing that? 🙂

  • By the way you two, that was totally a Beavis and Butthead moment there. I’ll leave it up to you who is who… 🙂
