Thanks for stopping by! This page is brand spankin' new and I'm still working out the kinks. Please be patient with me!
So how did Demon Monkey Craft start? I first learned to cross stitch from my Grandma when I was little. She taught me the basic X stitch and I dabbled a little. I didn't do much until my 20s when I tried to do a dresser scarf for a child. I was bored out of my mind and each stitch felt like torture. After I finished that project, I quit. I wasn't interested in stitching a bunch of teddy bears and Bible verses.
And then I was introduced to Subversive Cross Stitch, by Julie Jackson. I. Was. Hooked. Finally, someone was making patterns for people like me!!! And after knocking out a few patterns, I started to create my own. I loved the freedom of expression and the use of a traditional craft in modern ways. My patterns reflect my interests and my sense of humor and snark. It isn't for everyone but I know there are a few of you out there who "get me."
Almost always, I use DMC floss and Demon Monkey Craft is a play on my fave floss. So stay tuned to this site for new and improved things, blog posts and more awesomeness. I appreciate your feedback as well. In the event my shop isn't working, please see me over at my Etsy site: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DemonMonkeyCraft.
