“Gorgeously romantic” time travel from the author of the award-winning A Stitch in Time (Old Victorian Quill). It should be the happiest day of her life. Sarah Yates is finally marrying her true love, John Needler. But Sarah and John can’t pretend they’re an ordinary couple. They’re time travellers, and slipping in and out of the past to repair problems that can affect the future can put quite a wrinkle on a honeymoon. One minute Sarah is saying her vows and the next she’s hurtled back to Southampton, 1939. England is on the cusp of war, but Sarah’s most pressing battle is with ill-tempered teacher Veronica Ratchet. A fellow time-bounding “stitch,” Veronica spells trouble. Especially when she shadows Sarah back home . . . The past and the present are about to collide, the patterns of fate are coming unraveled, and as a mission of utmost importance is jeopardized, Sarah and John realize that their problems are just beginning. “I loved both Cross Stitch and A Stitch in Time . . . great books.” —Linda Stacey

Inspired by the banners and signs at recent marches around the world, Really Cross Stitch takes all that anger, outrage and protest and puts it inside a pretty, decorative border. Along with some snarky commentary and general annoyance. Featuring more than 40 truly original cross stitch designs, the book also contains instructions on techniques for new stitchers. Stitching for public protest is not new. First-wave feminists in the US and in Britain used needlework in their demonstrations and public protest lectures during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Needlework and other handcrafts, however, declined throughout the twentieth century, with second-wave feminists arguing against "the oppression of the needle". In the 21st century however there has been a steep resurgence and many are turning to crafting, especially needlework, as an activist strategy. In Knitting for Good, feminist Betsy Greer makes this point strongly when she proclaims, “I think every act of making is an act of revolution.”
