A Piece Called Marlon

Soon to be seen in the Angry Stitch shop is the new Angry Stitch Goes to Hollywood collection. A collection of cross stitch pieces based and inspired by the classic stars of Hollywood, the contract stars, broadly speaking...

Each piece is titled with that star's first name and features 4-5 seemingly random words which are, in fact, key points of trivia specifically about that actor or actress. A Classic Hollywood brainteaser if you will!

I hand mount and frame the pieces in vintage inspired frames I have sourced from antique shops, carboots...anywhere and everywhere!

I recently accepted a commission for an Angry Stitch Goes to Hollywood piece about a specific actor and here it is...can you guess who it is and what the clues are? It's title is the name of this post...

Fancy a Cup O' Stitches?

Fancy seeing one of our recent commissions in stitch-u...oh yes, puntastic!

The beautiful and stylish Rhedyn B&B (rated 4 stars by the AA) in Cilmery, Wales recently commissioned The Angry Stitch to create 3 pieces for each of their 3 guestrooms. They wanted the pieces to accompany their in-room tea service and we were happy to help!

Here are some pics of each of them in their new homes, what do you think?

Cup of Tea? - in Welsh...oooh!

Thank you Rhedyn for such a lovely commission, hope your guests like them!

VIP Angry Stitches

Last month aka last year (!), we at The Angry Stitch were commissioned to create 4 pieces for the exclusive VIP backstage area of the O2 in London.

It was a lotta stitches and some were very very angry but they look great in their new home, don't you think?

If you're a headliner or one of their can see them in person!
