Subscribe to XStitch – The Modern Cross Stitch Magazine

Are you tired of flipping through cross stitch magazines and feeling disappointed by the lack of variety?

It’s time to break free from the same old cute and outdated patterns that don’t truly reflect your personality. As a modern cross stitcher, you deserve better than mediocrity.

Hi! I’m Jamie, aka Mr X Stitch, the founder of XStitch. Nice to meet you!

Since I fell in love with cross-stitching at the age of 30, I’ve become a cross stitch designer, written two needlework books, appeared on national TV and radio, and hosted hundreds of cross-stitch workshops, introducing thousands of people to this wonderful craft.

Over the years, I noticed a disconnect between the vibrant creativity of online designers and pixel artists, and the more traditional cross-stitch magazines.

I saw a way to bridge the gap and bring more imagination to the craft and launched XStitch in 2017.

XStitch is a cross stitch magazine that celebrates the diverse designs of the wider market, while encouraging designers to push their creativity in new ways.

It is a magazine that respects your intelligence and maintains the ethos that cross stitch is one of the best crafts on the planet.

XStitch is more than a cross stitch magazine, it’s an experience.

Our interactive digital issues feature charts in two formats, with a collaborative YouTube playlist for each issue and clickable links to the designers, so you can listen to great tunes while you stitch and connect with people you admire with ease!

Upgrade your cross-stitch game with the
XStitch Cross Stitch Magazine Subscription.

Get a new issue every quarter and enjoy
the freshest cross stitch designs from around the world.

Instead of spending time searching for new designers and matching them to your desired themes, or learning to make your own patterns, why not check out our back issue catalogue to find themes and patterns that match your tastes and needs?

It’s a convenient and exciting way to discover designs you’ll love without the hassle.

With a new issue added every three months, there’s always a fresh selection of ideas to explore.

And if you’re one of those throw “caution to the wind” types, our Mixtape issues have no specific theme, just great designs that you’ll love to show off!

With such a fantastic selection of themes and designs to choose from, you will never run out of new things to stitch. And once your friends and family see the amazing hand made masterpieces you’re displaying at home, they’ll be asking you to make new things for them.

Here’s what our readers say about XStitch:

“I love that it’s more modern patterns and designs. Nothing wrong with geese and teddy bears, but that’s why I stopped cross stitching for years.”

”The only cross stitch mag where I actually read the articles! Always interesting!”

“I love the over-all vibe! Very positive, eclectic, and welcoming.”

“Fresh new ideas I don’t see anywhere else!”

“You show the way the craft is going. You speak to those of us on the ground. So many of the mainstream mags are geared towards the pearl clutching set instead of trying to gain this younger market. You see us!”

“I enjoy the variety of contributors and the diversity of their artistic styles and approaches to the medium”

“I love the edge you apply to a somewhat romantic art form.”

Here’s what our readers do with XStitch:
