“[Rohr] truly understands the therapeutic value of reclaiming what was once traditional ‘women’s work’ as a modern, empowering medium. Her designs are spot-on and well executed with clear, encouraging instructions. There are very few people who really ‘get’ subversive cross-stitch the way Stephanie does.” —Julie Jackson, founder of Subversive Cross Stitch
The patterns, ‘bold and fierce’ indeed, will speak to stitchers who share Rohr’s spirit and convictions.” —Publishers Weekly
“Standouts here include a folk-art inspired ‘Don’t Tell Me to Smile’ and a sweet, floral pattern that proclaims ‘A woman’s place is in the Revolution’ . . . Feminist Cross-Stitch is very much on-trend as a new generation discovers the joys of needlework.” —Booklist
