… to the 20th anniversary issue of Crazy! That’s right, it’s been 20 years since Crazy first appeared on the scene back in 1999. To celebrate, we’re hosting a mega-giveaway on page 56, with 20 prizes worth £100+ each. Plus, we have all you need to start your winter stitching! I love Emma Congdon’s Christmas greetings cushion on page 64, which features the phrase ‘Merry Christmas’ in 18 different languages. Or, if you’re looking for cards, try Maria Diaz’s classic poppy-themed designs on page 30 for Remembrance Day, or the pom-pom winter hats on page 39 for any winter holiday or event! And for a real festive treat, learn how to stitch and make your own plastic canvas Santa sleigh on page 72. Enjoy, and thanks for being part of…

over to you…

Marilyn Wagner Leeds Who do you most like to stitch for? I enjoy stitching for my friends and family. They receive a lot of my projects as gifts! How would you describe your stitching style? My stitching style is mostly slow and sure, as I want to make sure I get the design right. How cross stitch crazy are you? I like to stitch for at least four hours a day!
