The Stitch Bitch Subversives DIY Embroidery Card Kit is a chance for embroiderers and concerned citizens to stab out stereotypes with humor and needle art when it comes to the treatment of minority demographics today. Katrina Majkut’s cross-stitch kit and those made with her collaborators attempt to insert feminism, humor and politics into contemporary mass-produced kits that continue to reassert cross-stitch as a passive, stereotypically gendered and conservative domestic craft. The kit also offers a wry narrative throughout the instructions outlining the challenges people face today. As a limited edition, the kit can be created or kept as a work of fine art.
Kit Includes: Aida Cloth, needle, DMC floss, sassy instructions (English and Spanish), a business card, all inside an archival plastic sleeve.
Not Included in Kit: A personal sense of humor or political and personal outrage; scissors or embroidery hoop.
