- Paste Magazine
"Perfect for cool parents and hipsters alike."
- The Advocate, online
"By taking this old-fashioned technique, and even some old-fashioned designs, but adding in updated sayings, her designs balance precariously on that line between awful and awesome."
- BUST, online
"Getting your stitchy snark on is so easy, you'll wonder why you haven't been doing it for years!"
- MAKE Magazine
"What's appealing about the patterns featured is that they have a real sense of humour and irony about them."
- Textile Artist
"The glossy pages feature photos of the finished products on the left-hand side with patterns on the right, if you're so inclined to put needle to canvas yourself. Otherwise, the 50 different sayings do quite well as a mini coffeetable book, or a nice gift for the friend who's not afraid to combine the whimsical with a straight shot of sass."
- Red Eye Chicago
"Julie has a new book coming out TODAY and it's even better than her first!"
