Rozsika Parker's re-evaluation of the reciprocal relationship between women and embroidery has brought stitchery out from the private world of female domesticity into the fine arts, created a major breakthrough in art history and criticism, and fostered the emergence of today's dynamic and expanding crafts movements._x000D_ _x000D_ 'The Subversive Stitch' is now available again with a new Introduction that brings the book up to date with exploration of the stitched art of Louise Bourgeois and Tracey Emin, as well as the work of new young female and male embroiderers. Rozsika Parker uses household accounts, women's magazines, letters, novels and the works of art themselves to trace through history how the separation of the craft of embroidery from the fine arts came to be a major force in the marginalisation of women's work. Beautifully illustrated, her book also discusses the contradictory nature of women's experience of embroidery: how it has inculcated female subservience while providing an immensely pleasurable source of creativity, forging links between women._x000D_ _x000D_ "A book wonderfully rich, not only in information, but in people and ideas." - 'Guardian'_x000D_ _x000D_ "A marvellously written and illustrated book." - 'Times Educational Supplement'

A fun, witty, nerdy, and irreverent craft book for the modern cross-stitcher. Sometimes it's good to be a little...improper. Profane, funny, and smart, Haley Pierson-Cox's IMPROPER CROSS-STITCH invites the modern crafter to bring personality and humor to their cross stitch projects. From a fully designed "Damn it feels good to be a crafter" to the beautiful Art Deco inspired "fuck," Haley's patterns are fresh, lively and just what the crafter ordered. In this book, she'll introduce readers to the joys of stitching the naughty, the profane, the irreverent, and the just plain awesome. First, she starts with a basic lesson in cross-stitch technique, no previous experience required. Then, once readers know your way around an embroidery hoop and a skein of floss, the books moves on to the designs—35 in total, ranging from hip, to nerdy, to ironically domestic—where Haley encourages crafters to embrace their inner snark with gleeful abandon. Her easy to follow instructions and colorful designs can make a cross stitcher out of anyone. In all her years of crafting, Haley's learned many things, but this simple fact remains one of the most important: There is absolutely nothing in this world quite so satisfying as enshrining something deeply inappropriate within the delicate stitches of a cross-stitch sampler. It's truly one of life's great delights!

For crafters who like their stitching with a twist, this book reworks or reimagines fine embroidery and cute craft imagery so that they cross over to the dark side.

Projects include a RIP (read in peace) bookmark, a butterfly and skulls tote bag, and a pig strikes back barbecue apron. Inspired by popular culture and street art, it's the craft equivalent of the Jane Austin and vampire novel smash-up and is guaranteed to amuse. The book contains 30 original cross stitch and embroidery designs, organised by project type (eg home or clothing). Projects include pictures, cards, cushions and accessories. Twisted Stitches also features instructions on techniques for new stitchers. All projects use DMC threads.

Bonus bookmark included! For the first time, Julie Jackson’s sassy cross-stitch designs are available in coloring book form. Julie doesn’t hold back and neither should you. An adult activity book that collects her signature "charmingly disgruntled" patterns into the ultimate therapy--coloring pages--plus connect-the-dots, finish-the-doodle, and a host of other fun activities, this is the perfect opportunity to color your blues away and channel your inner badass with the Subversive Cross Stitch Coloring Book Feeling overloaded and underwhelmed? Try a subversive activity instead of freaking out. Practice mindlessness while you color one of Julie’s trademark cross-stitch designs (brilliantly reinterpreted by subversive illustrator Chris Piascik.) Or improve a bad mood with an in-your-face activity such as folding the “Flying F*ck” paper airplane or the handy Decision-Maker Cube. If it’s kindness that gets you through the day, make an “Everyday Valentine” for someone who deserves it. This book gives you permission to cut loose. This is not a book you put on the shelf and leave in perfect condition; it’s meant to be wildly interactive. So color outside the lines, cut parts out, fold, and throw things—tear it up and make it your own! No one else brings the same frustrations and creative attitude to it that you do. Consider it your therapy project and an escape from the pressures of the day. Most importantly, SHARE. Share the results with co-workers by adding your boss’s face to a finger puppet. Unleash your inner futurist with the magic cat fortune-teller. Or color and tear out one of the illustrated phrases to hang at your desk and remind you to smile now and then. Go ahead and turn your world upside down for a while. Release the therapeutic value of play and be the bad kid in class you always wanted to be. Color on the walls! There are no consequences here. Embrace the delicious thrill of so-called “bad” words (no one is shocked anymore.) By coloring them in, you take away their power. And really, f*ck anyone who can’t take a joke. Above all, have fun! Tear it up!
