Mr X Stitch returns! Talk and workshop on 25th May


Fancy living life on the edge? 
Well, come and hang out with us on the 25th May and we’ll give 
you a little taster of what the edge looks like... 
from a needlecraft point of view that is.


“Life at the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge”

Saturday 25th May, 2 to 5.30pm

£20 per person

Our good friend Mr X Stitch (you know, the one from Kirsty’s Handmade Britain)
is coming to Pinworks HQ at Darn It & Stitch for an afternoon of talk and stitch 
(and cake, let’s not forget the cake).

Mr X (stitch artist, curator, blogger, writer and all round personality) 
will give us a tour of the best contemporary embroidered art around the planet. 
After wowing us with inspiration and his own special brand of humour,
he’ll bring us back down to earth for a mini workshop so we can 
all brush up on our skills and get creative. 
Pretty cool eh?



We guarantee you’ll be all fired up for a stitching frenzy!
In the words of Mr X himself, “Don’t get angry, get cross - stitch”.

Grab yourself a spot  - call the Pinworks hot line 01865 366 378
