If ever there was a book I didn’t need to do a comprehensive review of, it’s Star Trek Cross Stitch: Explore Strange New Worlds of Crafting by John Lohman. Get your copy from our affiliate links here!
However, for those of you that have been living under a rock for the past five years, here’s a quick run down of why this is a fantastic addition to the world of cross stitch books.
John “Johloh” Lohman is the Founder of Sprite Stitch, our favourite video game craft website. We’ve had a column featuring Sprite Stitch Best Bits on this site for years now, and it’s a constant source of cool craft.
Ranging from simple to fairly complex, the patterns will keep you entertained, and have massive appeal to Star Trek fans across the board. Sure, the patterns tend to focus more on The Original Series and The Next Generation, but that just means they’ll have to do a second book so we can get more of that Captain Janeway action that we all need.
The book is great – well designed, filled with simple instructions and some terrific designs. It’s everything a pop culture cross stitch book ought to be and I’m proud to know the people that made it. If you’ve know anyone who’s wavering about whether they should try cross stitch, this book is a great tool to help win the argument.
