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. Think charming cottages with roses around the door - and trash and abandoned vehicles in the front yard, or napkins embroidered with pretty but poisonous plants. 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.

From the author of How Paris Became Paris, a sweeping history of high finance, the origins of high fashion, and a pair of star-crossed lovers in 18th-century France. Paris, 1719. The stock market is surging and the world's first millionaires are buying everything in sight. Against this backdrop, two families, the Magoulets and the Chevrots, rose to prominence only to plummet in the first stock market crash. One family built its name on the burgeoning financial industry, the other as master embroiderers for Queen Marie-Thérèse and her husband, King Louis XIV. Both patriarchs were ruthless money-mongers, determined to strike it rich by arranging marriages for their children. But in a Shakespearean twist, two of their children fell in love. To remain together, Louise Magoulet and Louis Chevrot fought their fathers' rage and abuse. A real-life heroine, Louise took on Magoulet, Chevrot, the police, an army regiment, and the French Indies Company to stay with the man she loved. Following these families from 1600 until the Revolution of 1789, Joan DeJean recreates the larger-than-life personalities of Versailles, where displaying wealth was a power game; the sordid cells of the Bastille; the Louisiana territory, where Frenchwomen were forcibly sent to marry colonists; and the legendary "Wall Street of Paris," Rue Quincampoix, a world of high finance uncannily similar to what we know now. The Queen's Embroiderer is both a story of star-crossed love in the most beautiful city in the world and a cautionary tale of greed and the dangerous lure of windfall profits. And every bit of it is true.

Bestselling creator of Subversive Cross Stitch Julie Jackson brings her unique brand of snark to the Subversive Cross Stitch Coloring and Activity Book, with 40 fun activities (for grown-ups only.) 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!
