Since establishing the Mr X Stitch site in 2008, Jamie Chalmers has been showcasing new talent in the world of textiles and stitch and has curated a number of stitch-based exhibitions in the UK and Ireland.
A stitcher for over ten years, he is an internationally exhibited artist and the curator of PUSH Stitchery, featuring 30 contemporary embroidery artists from around the world. He has also written articles for textile publications across the world, including FiberArtsNow magazine and Surface Design Journal, and is the regular columnist at Sewing World magazine.
His new book, The Mr X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch, has been published by Search Press and his new magazine, XStitch, is changing the way you think about cross stitch magazines!
He believes in the benefits of stitching, both from a relaxation and a sustainability perspective and is honoured to introduce new artists that inspire and encourage new people to take to the needle and thread.
