You might remember that last year, I was invited along to run some cross stitch workshops at The Clothes Show Live in conjunction with Cross Stitcher Magazine. Well, Cross Stitcher is now a ripe old 20 years old! Cripes, that's pretty good going, eh? The 250th issue was just unleashed on the public last week. Regardez: They've gone a bit Queen's Diamond Jubilee crazy this issue, which is timely as a) it's in June, so you'd better get stitching and b) we have some Miso Funky Jubilee-related things to talk to you about very soon, too. Watch this space. Cross Stitcher also have a nice website with charts and projects to download, competitions and special offers. At the moment, you can score 50% off Stitch & Craft Show tickets for next month at Olympia. Sadly, although I was invited to go along and appear on the stand at this show, I can't make it but the line-up is awesome with our very own Emily Peacock there on Saturday and our good friend Mr X on Thursday. They're also running a whole bunch of competitions at the moment - check them out here.
