Stitchgasm – #UK2015GeneralElectionResultsLiveStitch


It's another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch - the home of contemporary embroidery

Big up Tom Katsumi who is planning on stitching the results of the UK General Election on Thursday:

“On the night of Thur 7th – Fri 8th May (UK time) I’m going to attempt to live-cross-stitch the results of the 2015 UK general election. I’ll probably fail and just end up falling asleep on a needle, but if you are inclined feel free to check in on proceedings on twitter, instagram or facebook (#‎UK2015GeneralElectionResultsLiveStitch ).

Tom Katsumi - General Election Live Stitch
“Here’s the (still work in progress) results board.  Each of the 650 stitches on the map represents one UK ‘constitchuency’ and I’ll be filling them in with the appropriate colour as the results come in – providing regular updates until I pass out or a coup d’etat renders the results irrelevant.”

I just hope he’s bought lots of green thread! #votegreen2015

  • Wow! Will the colours gin the relevant place in the map? Just asking because Suffolk Coastal seems to have become an “innie” on the map! Nice to see Waveney sticking out into the North Sea as it actually does, most easterly constituency in the UK, we’re backing Bob!

    • I think he’s gonna do his best but I don’t think it’s feasible for him to make it completely accurate.

  • It’s based on this election map from the last election, so it’s not that geographically accurate (one stitch per constitchuency so London will be massive and Scotland is tiny for example)

    But you can hopefully use that link to find any individual constitchuency!

    Let me know if you want a specific update of any particular area and I’ll do my best!
