An interview with Dame Zandra RhodesWelcome to a fabulously festive issue of Stitch! It's that time of year once again and we're itching to get stitching gorgeous gifts for friends, family and of course ourselves!

We've got you covered this Christmas, combining a tremendous tapestry of traditional techniques with some truly cool contemporary designs to stitch to your heart's content! You can't beat crewelwork at Christmas, so indulge yourself with two equally stunning but totally different embroideries for you to work your crewelwork magic. If your looking for a hanging ornament, Christmas card design, wall art or more, both of these designs are so versatile you won't know which to stitch first.

If gold and glitter sing Christmas to you, turn to page 52 for a radiant reindeer goldwork project, a real treat for the eye.

There's plenty of other inspiration to be found as well including a look at some of the incredible winning designs from this year's Festival of Quilts and if you love textiles in fashion, Stitch had a chat with Dame Zandra Rhodes (pictured left), celebrating 50 years in the industry!

We wish you a very merry Stitchmas and a crafty new year!
