Fangirl Stitches – Roslyn Core

A long time ago, in a galaxy (well, small town) far, far away in central Queensland, a 13 year-old girl learnt how to cross-stitch. She quickly became obsessed, “borrowing” her mother’s stitching supplies to create gifts for friends and family.

A few years later, this same girl discovered the world of science-fiction and fantasy: Doctor Who, Discworld, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars. A new obsession had begun…

She started designing her own patterns when she struggled to find sci-fi projects she wanted to stitch: larger designs, kitch designs, designs that came together quickly yet still looked impressive. Then other people started saying they’d like to stich her patterns too, and thus Fangirl Stitches was born!
