Subversive Needlepointing for the Cynics

Subversive Needlepointing for the Cynics

So, ever since I posted about my mum and her needlepointing, I noticed that there's been a bit of a resurgence of the craft for the younger set--not as popular as knitting, per se, but enough for Julie Jackson to start Subversive Cross Stitch, a flourishing business selling kits for those of us who would like to drop f-bombs on some gamboling kitties in our cross-stitchery. You can check out her availalble kits here (although...be warned: some of these kits may not be suitable to view if you're at work and your boss is nosy). Kits come with all the pattern, instructions, and thread. Also, you can upgrade to deluxe, which includes an embroidery hoop and two needles. Check em out at Subversive Cross Stitch.
