Issue 18 of XStitch is Volume 4 in our Mixtape series with 17 original modern cross stitch patterns from our international family of designers!

Our Mixtapes represent an eclectic selection of the freshest cross stitch talent from around the world and our fourth volume is our best yet! We welcome four new designers to the XStitch family: from Australia, Fuzzy Fox Designs and Cinnabar Canary, from the UK it’s Army of Trolls and our first Cypriot designer comes on board as MiloMinibyXenia joins us!

Designer Karen Seelig invites you to Think Outside The Hoop with your stitching, and we take a look at the r/CrossStitch forum on Reddit, a truly thriving community for stitchers! We’ve got a review of the new Super Subversive Cross Stitch book as well as our regular features – XStitcher of the Month, Let Lucie Let Loose and XStitchers of Instagram!

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!

If you’re looking for something different to cross stitch, or you just don’t know what you like, our Mixtapes are perfect for you – there really is something for everyone!
