up the punx!

Since I like the combination of punk rock & cross stitch (see examples here, here & here) I thought that there must be others like me somewhere out there. So I went on the interwebz & searched for like minded stitchers, but they're harder to find than I thought.

Got a little bit frustrated, until I remembered that a while ago I found this reassuring piece from Whatever James:

As a bonus, here's another work of his that I really like.


I also tried my luck at Etsy, where I found Bombastitch who makes a lot of funny & cool x-stitch stuff. My favourite is the simple & elegant Black Flag logo (been thinking about stitching that one myself). Great work, great band.

PopSoupSupplies sells this multi-tasking Clash pattern, that works for "CROCHETING, KNITTING, CROSS STITCH, NEEDLEPOINT, BEADING AND MUCH MORE!". I love the frame, but I'm guessing it's not included in the price...

Another cross stitching punk genius is Lisa, who I met at Punk Illegal '07 where we discovered that we share a mutual love for Sju Svåra År. The quote on this pillow comes from the same song as this one.

Another favourite of mine is this one. The top hits on Google claims that Skitliv is a norwegian black/doom metal band formed by the former singer of Mayhem, but in my world it's a song by Skitsystem.

But I'm thinking that this can't be all there is? Leave a comment here or send an e-mail if you have any links to share.

EDIT: I forgot Confessions of a Crafter! Love this:
