I am an embroidery artist and author of cross-stitch projects book, X-Stitch. I love nothing more than scouring charity shops for old needlepoint pieces and clothes to embroider and give a new lease of life to. I hope to share with you my favourite Oxfam finds, and tutorials on how to rework your charity shop pieces.
