Mr X Stitch is 6

I Heart Mr X Stitch

Hi everyone, Jamie aka Mr X Stitch here. Today is the sixth birthday of this site and I’m going to take a moment for some reflection and thanks.

First of all, thanks to all of you, dear readers, for joining me on this journey. Mr X Stitch has grown from being a simple blog with my witterings about life and stitchery to something that is becoming profound. With over 3750 posts featuring all manner of amazing embroidery, it’s become a terrific resource for fans of embroidery, professionals and students. I could not be more proud. Check out this lineup!
