Crass Stitch Christmas

Whoop whoop! It's the first instalment of my alternative Christmas Gift Guide! Up first we have the lovely Crass Stitch! If you are are easily offended look away now - she is exactly as she sounds....

A couple of months ago I met Kat Nower of Crass Stitch who has taken a lovely, homely hobby of cross stitching and subverted it into a hilariously sullied business. Not only does she produce a prolific amount of beautifully crafted cards she also creates commissions for people wanting their own specific brand of filth mounted on their wall. Businesses have hopped on her naughty worded band waggon and her work is proudly displayed in Home Sweet Home and Almost Famous Burgers both located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

Forget bunches of flowers and teddy bears, Crass Stitch is the physical embodiment of Kirsty Allsop gone bad. Miss Nower’s own brand of swearware blatantly sticks two very prominent fingers up at polite social methods of recognising “life events”. With cards starting from just £3.50 (and look great mounted in a frame) and individual commissions from £40, what better way of brightening up your Christmas and those closest to you by adding some saucy language to the traditional gift giving ceremony?  

There are all sorts of offerings in her Folksy shop. Take a look and order now so she can get them stitched in time for the festive season. 

I’m off to wash my mouth out…
