Designed for Cross Stitchers

Uniquely crafted for cross stitchers, this Stitchtopia cross stitch holiday is the ideal opportunity to learn a new craft or indulge in your favourite hobby. Our talented cross stitch expert will be on hand throughout the holiday and host inspirational workshops with a beautifully designed project to spark your creativity.

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.
