Mr X Stitch talks New Media

Thursday 26 November, 18.00-20.00

Jamie “Mr X Stitch” Chalmers is a trail blazing ‘man-broiderer’ and needleworker. In our last Crafty Networking event of the year, Jamie will discuss the digital tools he uses to bring the world’s best contemporary embroidery to new audiences and generations. He will explore how the savvy implementation of social media platforms can transform a mis-understood craft into exciting new media trends.
