Pre-Order the New Book!

I am SO excited to finally get to tell you more about my second book of Subversive Cross Stitch! You can pre-order a copy here on our site and we can even send a special little gift card to the recipient before the holidays if it’s a gift.

Here’s the deal: the official release date is February 24, 2015, but I will have copies here to sign and ship in early February. So I thought I’d pre-sell in case you want to make it a holiday gift for someone (I mean, you can order one for yourself as well of course!). The cards are really cute–not here yet but I’ll post an image on the book page when they arrive.

This book includes all the patterns from my first book, which is out of print and I know some of you have been trying to find one. So I included everything from the first, plus added enough new patterns to make it a book of FIFTY total patterns. I redesigned all of the charts to make them easier to read and also added stitch counts for each chart. Plus, there are three alphabet charts, a DIY grid and a photo of my mom in space!

I’m really excited about it–I’ve waited four years to work with the publisher, powerHouse books, because they do beautiful work and I wanted to do a book with a company that doesn’t usually do craft books. They mostly do art and photography books.

I will have my copy in mid-December and you can bet I’ll share more images then. In the meantime, stay tuned for more details and pre-order on our site for earliest delivery. Thank you for your support and excitement, I really hope you love it!

The Perfect Subversive Gift

Nothing makes me happier than a tiny “fuck” stitched by hand and dressed up in a small ornate, vintage, gilded frame–my original inspiration for starting Subversive Cross Stitch. It still makes me giddy with delight.

The best part is seeing the look on someone’s face when they realize what you’ve just given them. It’s a delicious way to show them that you truly do give a fuck.

I’m sharing my┬ácoveted collection of vintage frames by turning them into one-of-a-kind originals, hand-stitched by me. Each piece is in a gilded frame with an antique wallpaper-finished back and signature. The wallpaper samples are actually used in my upcoming 2015 book.

This is a very limited edition of fucks! From $50-150 in our FUCK shop.
