Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge! I’m Mr X Stitch and I’ll be your guide to the best in contemporary embroidery. Each week I’ll showcase someone who is rocking the world of embroidery and textiles.


Diem Chau is an wonderful artist. Originally from Vietnam, she studied art in Seattle and has won several awards for her work.

Her porcelain works are amazing, using the threads to break out of the confines of the crockery structure. See more of these on her website gallery.

She also produces modern embroideries, that have understated elegance, and that also go beyond their normal dimensions.

You can visit her blog, check out her Flickr, buy some of her work from her etsy store. It’s wonderful stuff.


Mr X Stitch is a manbroiderer, cross stitch designer and runs,
the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet.
He can often be found hanging out on the Craftster needlecraft boards or at the Phat Quarter on Flickr.

    Yes. Yes. Yes!

    Diem Chau’s work is amazing. I missed the group embroidery show in Soho by 1 day last fall. But I haven’t forgotten the work I saw on the gallery’s web site.

    I support manbroidery. The word alone is just one huge smile.

    Stitch on…
