The craft world has officially been overrun by counter-cultures nimble fingers and witty edge. Julie Jackson’s line of smart-ass cross stiches and pre-threaded domestic decorations are no exception. Jackson describes herself as “not much of a joiner,” but whose to say interning for Mister Roger’s Neighborhood isn’t what all the cool kids were doing when they weren’t studying post-graduate level philosophy.
Jackson’s site, Subversive Cross Stitch, is an entertaining place. She hosts a blog, which was abandoned in 2009 but is still a hoot to look at. Additionally, for aspiring crafters she provides patterns so that you too can make and mount subversive messages in your own home!
Ever on top of her game, Jackson has just published a new series of Charlie Sheen quote cross stitches, blending pop-culture and sarcasm ever so daintily.
Grab your thimbles crafters and just say what we were all thinking anyway!
