No matter if you like the great outdoors or you’re a staycation fan, there’s something in this issue that will set you forth on a stitching saga!

We welcome Russian designer Kate Spiridonova to the XStitch family and while our Designer Discourse this issue is with none other than Julie “Subversive Cross Stitch” Jackson! In total we’ve got 15 original patterns from seven countries including Tiny Modernist from Canada and FiddlesticksAU from Australia!

We’ve got lots of helpful travel information in the mag as well, including Kirsty “ExtremeXStitch” Torrance’s top tips for stitching on planes and the most stylish way to pimp your passport, and we’ve got an excellent couple of manbroiderers to showcase as well!

This issue has charts in two formats – Colour Blocks & Symbols and Symbols only – to make it easier for you to follow them, and because it’s an interactive PDF you can click between sections in the mag, and click on links to the designers and to our collaborative YouTube playlist!
