A recurring fear of mine is that I will one day wake up and nothing in the house to cross stitch with. This is fairly unlikely seeing as I have a crate full of kits and threads stashed underneath my bed, but just to prepare myself, I subscribe to 2 magazines a month, just in case supplies get a little low. I have been subscribing to The World of Cross Stitching (or WOXS) for about 5 years now, and it pains me to say it, but I won't be continuing my subscription any more. That's not to say the magazine isn't good. It has plenty of different projects, clear instructions and excellent photos of the finished articles so that people can see what they are aiming ...

This magazine is just about to reach its 250th issue - which isn't bad going for a magazine that is only published 13 times a year! The magazine has a good mix of cross stitch charts at various skill levels. It doesn't tend to have a lot of choice for the real beginner except the christmas issues when lots of people pick up magazines like this one in the hope that they will be able to create those wonderful handmade christmas cards!! For those people who also like the written word in the magazine there is a letters page, usually an article on a cross stick designer, a reader article on how cross stictching has changed their lives, a crossword and a ...

When this monthly magazine first hit the presses about 6 or so years ago, there weren't many cross-stitch magazine on the market at that time. This one is edited by Mary Hickmott - a well-respected designer who up to the time of the magazine, had produced a large number of cross-stitch kits. The initial publications were excellent - full of highly detailed designs which could be created using one's own threads and fabrics, without the need for buying the kits (which usually cost in the region of £20 plus). Slowly, other types of embroidery were included: * Blackwork (which is using lots of back-stitches to create over-all and intricate patterns, ... Read the complete review

I've been subscribing to this magazine for over a year now and i'm always impressed by it. It has just about everything any stitcher would want. Charts- the charts they offer range from cute to traditional and there is at least one chart in it that appeals to me every month. As well as the larger projects they also have small designs you could stitch in a few hours, these are great for card making and children. All charts and simple and easy to stitch. Tips- Every month there is a guide to help you stitch if your a complete beginner and tips on improving your stitching if your not. Compatitions- There is also compitions every month for ...

I am a founder of a cross stitch club on yahoo, and buy alot of the magazines related to cross stitching, in order ot get the latest news and info to pass on to my members. I find world of cross stitching is very informative, not only does it have great charts and designs but also reviews of the newest designs brought out, pen pals all over the world you can contact plus letter written by readers. It also helps readers find those hard to get designs, by publishing their letter and finding the items for them, which is great as it makes the magazine more interactive. Some of the magazines tend to be full of just charts, which is fine if you ... Read the complete review
