very cross stitch


We like anything that undermines people perception of hobby craft. We've discoverd there are alot of angry crafters out there using their talents to provide political commentary. It's a way of venting the spleen and ending up with a nice cushion or wall hanging at the end of it.

We're most impressed with Julie Jackson and her website Subversive Cross Stitch. She's called her project 'anger management therapy' and now shares it with the rest of us in the form of pithy cross stich kits that you can admire and then order to DIY. She hasn't shunned the traditional floral or bunny motifs, it's just that she's added delicious phrases like 'go fuck yourself' and 'fuck cancer' that are at once hilarious and shocking too. But it's good to have a sense of humour - as on says 'Life Sucks and then You Die'
