Welcome to the XStitch Revolution – it’s our first issue and the theme is REVOLUTION!

With 20 original designs from some of your favourite cross stitch heroes, all of whom are responding to the theme of REVOLUTION, there’s guaranteed to be something you’ll love to stitch!

Issue 1 contains designs from familiar names like Maria Diaz and Emily Peacock, rising stars like Floss & Mischief and Lord Libidan.

Unlike other cross stitch magazines we also feature patterns from international artists like Niki McDonald and Ellen Schinderman, and we showcase brand new designer talent like PyroDogPins and Kate Blandford. It’s a unique mix of cross stitch creativity that you won’t find anywhere else!

As well as the designs, there are thought provoking articles from Spike Dennis and Betsy “Craftivism” Greer and an interview with Theo “Crapestry” Humphries! We’ve also got some tasty products reviewed by Grace from Beyond Measure, advice from Mary at FY Needlework, and also tips and techniques to help you improve your stitching!

Issue 1 also has a collaborative YouTube playlist for you to enjoy, with contributions from each designer! What more could you want?!
