I am excited to announce that one of my designs is featured in issue 20 of X Stitch Magazine. This interactive, digital magazine is published every quarter, and is chock full of original designs, interesting articles, and even music. In addition, each issue has its own theme. My stuff is up there alongside some of the best names in contemporary cross stitch design, and I am truly honored to be a part of X Stitch Magazine. And this is only the start! Going forward, I will be a regular contributor.

So, how did this happen?
In late 2021, one fateful Mr X Stitch newsletter was all about rock in cross stitch. I had to write to him and tell him that was pretty much what I do. After sharing some samples of my work, he asked if I'd like to contribute to his magazine, and the rest is history. I will try to keep all my submissions music-related in order to be true to my roots, but at least one future contribution will deviate to one of my other interests. You'll just have to subscribe to find out.
