Modern Cross Stitch Retreat

About the Course

Modern Cross Stitch Retreat
We are excited to be working with Mr X Stitch, Jamie Chalmers, to bring you a fantastic weekend of modern cross stitch. Take your inspiration from Bristol’s history, creative culture and arts scene on a guided walk and then be guided by Jamie to create your own piece of cross stitch – a memento of your weekend in Bristol and time with like-minded friends.

Including workshops with Jamie Chalmers AKA Mr X Stitch
Taking visual cues from the world of street art, you’ll design your own urban cross stitch pattern. Maybe you’ll be inspired by images you see as we tour Bristol, or maybe you’ll choose a word or “name” to interpret in a street art style.

Designs can be created on paper with pens and then we’ll use PCStitch software to translate them into cross stitch patterns, or you can kick it old school and work it out on graph paper. Whatever you choose, Mr X Stitch will be by your side to help!

If you intend to use PCStitch for your design, you will need to bring your own laptop with the software already installed. If you use MacStitch on a Mac, then this can also be accommodated.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
