Fanbase Press Shoots for the Stars with ‘A Geek’s Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space’

Fanbase Press is over-the-moon excited to announce the newest addition to its publishing slate with A Geek’s Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space.  Created by Clarissa Thorne of Unexpected Hobby and formatted by Oceano Ransford (The Arcs, Eisner Award-nominated Rikki), 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.  

“I am beyond excited to share my love for space exploration and cross-stitch with Journeys in Space,” says Thorne.  “The next best thing to trekking through the solar system is stitching it!”

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!

A Geek’s Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space is currently available for pre-order through the Fanbase Press website (  Pre-orders made by August 24, 2018, will receive three exclusive rocket patterns that will only be available for pre-order customers.
