The Excellent Exploits of Mr X Stitch – Bedpop Exhibition!

Hi everyone,

I write this post while sat in the Bedpop pop-up shop on Bedford High Street, where there is a rather groovy embroidery exhibition taking place until 5th May. As you might now, it’s particularly groovy because I’ve curated it, so I thought I’d share some of the images from the exhibition with you!
