and no, I don't mean that sarcastically. I'm with her! go see her stuff. political cross stitch as well as knitted poo.
what is it about these craft forms that when subverted really make me go "Yes!!!"? I combed the web for several years looking for this stuff to save my soul and found hardly any, which prompted me to start my first site, bauboroars.com.
my thoughts about what "it" is? many seem to be using these art/craft forms to cover things up, to make them pretty, to hide things they can't or don't want to see or talk about. this lends this form perfectly for subversive works to move hidden topics into the light. ahhh ~ relief.
so, if you don't want someone messing with your art form, just get real with it and we won't ;)
