Our September Show, Workshop, and Talk, Mr X Stitch – Guide to Cross Stitch, coincides with the launch of his new book of the same title. So, we finish this second season, The Magic of Making, very appropriately, in a rather different tempo with the electric Mr X Stitch, firing life into cross stitch and bringing us a powerful mixed exhibition shown earlier this year at Olympia London, while teaching us design and the wonders of cross stitch and its many creative possibilities in his lively workshop.
