About

XStitch Magazine has set a new standard in modern cross stitch design and is actively driving the new paradigm in forward thinking needlework. Each of our themed issues has delivered exciting patterns for people to stitch, from a growing group of design talents from all around the world. We are proud to provide a platform for designers to share their artistic skills to engage with a new needlework audience!

Our first five issues were in print format, but we've switched to digital to allow for greater flexibility and interactivity in the magazines we produce.

But there's still a part of us that loves print, and so we're making something special that'll keep your stitch juices flowing!

Our 2020 Calendar is a curated collection of some of our favourite designs from the previous two years, brought together to inspire your stitching for an entire year.

With styled shots by the magnificent Stacy Grant, each month will feature a pattern from one of our international cohort of creative cross stitch designers and on the reverse of each month you'll get the chart and legend so you can stitch the pattern yourself!

The calendar is a functional design so it'll be a useful time management tool as well as a visually appealing product!

What's not to love?!

Risks and challenges

The goal is set to cover the production cost of 100 calendars, but don't let that stop you from buying many many copies and sharing them with friends and loved ones all over the place!

If we don't hit the goal, the calendar won't be produced, but hey, we're gonna smash that goal, right?!
