Who am I?
Oh yeh, I’m an internationally exhibited cross stitch designer and artist by day, member of aristocracy by night. I stitch video game and contemporary cross stitch, and try to break the mold, by taking a different look at the traditional cross stitch, such as playing with perspective, or making 3D transformers.
A self titled “manbroiderer” (male embroiderer) I’m an internationally published cross stitch author and designer with 5 books and kits out, and 2 international magazines. I blog on my own website, in addition to being a blogger on Sprite Stitch (a video game craft website), a feature blogger for Mr X Stitch (the leading contemporary embroidery website), and a guest blogger on various cross stitch blogs.
If you want to get in contact, head over to the contact page and send me an email, or of course you can find me on a whole plethora of social media. And you should check out my RSS feed too.
