We’ve some fantastic columns on Mr X Stitch and we wanted to celebrate the authors who share their love of needlecraft with you. This time around it’s an introduction to our new Goldwork author, Charlotte Bailey, who brings a healthy dose of attitude to this highly regarded needlework form.
Name: Charlotte Bailey.
Location: London(ish), UK
Specialism: Hand Embroidery
Favourite Colour: Orange (bet you all expected it to be black…..!)
Favourite Film: Tie between ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’
Favourite Band: Green Day (I even took my sewing to do overnight in their queue)
Favourite Book: ‘Fragile Things’ – Neil Gaiman
Tell us a joke: A man walks into a bar. (yes, that’s all there is to that joke)
A little piece of wisdom if you please: Substitute your car’s steering wheel for a circular embroidery hoop and maximise all that boring time spent behind the wheel at red lights.
Thanks Charlotte! We’re really excited to see what Charlotte brings to the Mr X Stitch family. If you have an interest in goldwork and other high-end embroidery, or if you have work to share, drop us a line and tell us what you’d like to see. In the meantime, visit Charlotte’s website and go find her on Facebook!
