If you think you know what cross stitch is, look again! Jamie Chalmers, aka Mr. X Stitch, takes you to the very frontiers of cross stitch design, while also teaching you the step-by-step basics of the craft! With a foreword by Julie Jackson of Subversive Cross Stitch, Jamie introduces more than 20 fantastic, cutting edge projects to make, complete with charts, and shows that beauty, innovation and ‘craftivism’ are alive and kicking. Jamie’s writing style is fun, entertaining, and highly inspirational, and he also showcases colleagues who are pushing the boundaries of this ancient craft to modern heights. Appealing to men as well as women, his own spin on cross stitch includes urban flavours, the use of glow in the dark threads and plastic, how colour and typography can work, and the idea of mindfulness in cross stitch. Informative, fun and instructive, The Mr. X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch shows that cross stitch is an art in its own right.
