This book features at long last, cross-stitch patterns for the young, hip, do-it-yourself generation. "Subversive CrossStitch" is the Stitch-n-Bitch for needlework afficionados. It had already received lots of UK media attention - "The Guardian", "The Face" - and sure to gain more. Julie Jackson has brought cross-stitch firmly into the 21st century. Her work has the look of an oldfashioned sampler, surrounded by hearts and duckies, but emblazoned with messages such as "Bite me," "Beeyatch," and "Homo Sweet Homo." Julie Jackson was not cut out for the rat race. Frustrated with idiot bosses, she created "Subversive Cross-Stich" as a means of self-expression.
