Six of the Best – Young Guns


Mr X Stitch - the world's best embroidery and needlecraft site. Est 2008 At Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with a fantastic array of authors, who take time to share their corner of the world of stitch with us. In honour of our sixth birthday, we’re sharing six posts from as many of our team as possible! Check these guys out!

We’ve got a couple of recent recruits to the Mr X Stitch family who are bringing a nice bit of attitude in their approach to the world of stitch. I’m talking about Kate BlandfordOpens in a new tab. and Jess “Loadofolbobbins” Taylor.

Focusing on deviantArt and Etsy respectively, these two have unearthed some terrific finds and their enthusiasm for the subject is infectious!

Here’s three of the best from both of my stitchy sharpshooters! Click on the image to visit the original post!
