Out of this world! Make our rocket playset…WHEN WE PLAN what to put in each issue of CrossStitcher, we look at when it will be in the shops and think about what you would all like to stitch at that time. Occasions, fashions and requests all play an important part. But every now and then, we just have to go off on a flight of fancy as there’s something so special we know you will want to stitch it as soon as possible. This month it’s Oswald – in case you are not yet acquainted, that’s the name designer Amanda Butler has given to her fabulous dragon (page 77).

stories with stitch people

Hullo all! There are few people who can say they have literally been ‘over the moon’, but for those who rode on the Apollo missions, they can thank this month’s woman in history for the trip!Margaret Hamilton was the lead software engineer for the team that developed the on-board flight software for the Apollo space program. A brilliant scientist and mathematician, her ultra-reliable software design included fault detection and recovery techniques. These recovery actions allowed the software to detect errors and overloads and reprioritise tasks to prevent system shutdowns and mission aborts. She also coined the term ‘software engineer’.She is inspiration for what you can do if you grow your mad skills. At a time when women weren’t really considered serious contenders in the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering…
