Super Subversive Cross Stitch: 50 Fresh as F*ck Designs | Paperback
Super Subversive Cross Stitch is here to provide crafters with the snarky inspirations they love to stitch. The book features 50 patterns--23 brand-new designs and 27 fan favorites--along with easy-to-follow instructions for the beginner and fonts and designs for adventurous crafters looking to customize their creations. It recasts a traditional, dare we say sentimental, craft into a modern, relevant art form. It's the latest offering in the Subversive Cross Stitch brand, beloved by legions of DIYers. Less messy than graffiti, Super Subversive Cross Stitch allows crafters to adorn walls with political pith and irreverent twists on classic quotes (I think, therefore I drink, Let the good times be gin).
In 2003, Julie Jackson created Subversive Cross Stitch, a bedrock of the modern craft movement that pairs old-fashioned samplers with snarky sentiments. She has authored two cross stitch books: Subversive Cross Stitch: 50 F*cking Clever Designs for Your Sassy Side (powerHouse Books, 2015) and Subversive Cross Stitch: 33 Designs for Your Surly Side (Chronicle Books, 2006). Her kits, cards, and other gift items bearing Subversive designs can be found online and in retail stores around the world. Kits, supplies, advice, and hundreds of PDF patterns can be found on her site, subversivecrossstitch.com.
Julie also created Kitty Wigs, an early contender in the online world of cat memes. Her book Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs, has been seen in People magazine, on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, and even in the National Enquirer.
