A Geek's Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space
The next best thing to trekking through the solar system is stitching it!
Created by Clarissa Thorne of Unexpected Hobby, formatted by Oceano Ransford (The Arcs, Eisner Award-nominated Rikki) and featuring a foreword by Bonnie Burton (The Star Wars Craft Book, Crafting with Feminism), A Geek's Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space combines the art of cross-stitch with the science of space travel, providing a new outlet for geeky creativity for crafters of all experience levels.
Journeys in Space will feature over 25 original cross-stitch patterns that celebrate the awe and inspiration inherent in space travel and exploration. With patterns representing NASA’s Cassini and Juno missions, the Curiosity rover, the picturesque Mars landscape, and much more, the book will offer a chance for both beginner and experienced crafters to express their love for science and space with cross-stitch patterns of varying sizes. Plus, Journeys in Space’s spiral-bound format will allow crafters to lay the book flat for ultimate ease while stitching!
