In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, I thought I’d share news of the Kickstarter campaign that’s shaking up the craft world – XStitch Magazine!
To recap, XStitch will be a bi-annual cross stitch pattern magazine with an attitude that reflects the modern world. Each issue will have a theme and we’re inviting our favourite designers to respond to those themes will patterns you’ll actually want to stitch!
Not only will we have some phenomenal talent involved – more on that in a mo – we’ve got some great columnists and writers lined up to share their wit and wisdom with all of you. The magazine will have downloadable versions of the patterns in different formats, to suit your stitching needs, and we’ll have product reviews, interactive content, playlists and more!
We’re hoping we can get the magazine into craft shops around the world, and for that we need your help! If you’ve got a groovy shop near you, that would appreciate having copies of the world’s best cross stitch magazine to sell, please let us know!
We’ve already hit our goal and so the magazine is coming a reality, and so it’s worth sharing news of the designer talent that we’ve already announced to the world.First off it’s Jacqui Pearce who bright, stylish designs will have you itching for some stitching!
Don’t forget that there’s still time to invest in the campaign and by pre-ordering the magazine now, you’ll get a great price plus free shipping. That deal won’t be available once we’re published – although we’ll have subscription deals – so get involved while you can!
