Notorious Needle announces grand opening with Effin ‘Flowers cross stitch collection


TAMARAC, Florida, 23 Aug 2019 / PRNewswire / – The Notorious Needle would like to announce its grand opening by presenting its very first line of cross stitch patterns: the Effin ‘Flowers collection. Using the classic, relaxing form of fiber art to push back tradition, the collection will be available exclusively in the Notorious Needle Etsy store from Friday September 6, 2019.

This highly anticipated collection of cross stitch patterns juxtaposes cute floral wreaths with coarse phrases, taking inspiration from the particularly popular current trend of coarse memes written in beautiful swirling handwriting. Bites around the world will have fun creating charming housewarming decor while shocking friends and family with rude words. Choose from over 40 designs with different color moods associated simply with one of the many surly phrases like “Nope,” popular in the United States, or other less polite four-letter words.

For particularly adventurous embroiderers, Effin ‘Flowers includes all-new 3D cross-stitch letters, taking cross-stitching to the next dimension. Each letter combines a retro 80s-inspired diamond design with some of today’s trendy colors: water green, pale yellow, and the 2019 Pantone color of the year: living coral.

The Notorious Needle has tutorials on the site so that beginners to cross stitch can create their own handmade wall art. Each template also includes a free quick start guide to help beginners, or a cheat sheet for those returning to the trade. The 3D models also include a video tutorial unique to each design so the picker knows exactly how to put it together, step by step.

Designer and Founder Sarah Vargas believes in the healing power of creativity and handmade art. After escaping domestic violence and battling the resulting depression, she returned to her childhood cross-stitch comfort – with a twist. By sewing what was taboo, the freedom of art as a self-expression helped heal her, along with her loving friends and family. Now, she’s working to pay it forward and help others experience the release and laughter that can be found by doing sarcastic and sassy stitches.

“We’re stuck with expectations,” Sarah says. “It’s not good enough because we’ve always done it that way. Bonus points if that makes you laugh.”

For the first time, Sarah has created a full line of over 40 designs of her favorite cathartic cross stitch patterns. The Effin ‘Flowers collection is expected to go live on September 6, 2019. The collection will be sold exclusively in the Notorious Needle Etsy store at

Situated at Tamarac, Florida, the motivating goal of the Notorious Needle is to allow people to give up what they are “supposed” to create and sew what they want. Its designs range from small 3-inch workout projects for beginners to challenging 3D creations designed for confident biters. The company started in 2018 as a resource of tutorials and recommended supplies for beginners to cross stitch to learn the craft.

Notorious Needle free workout templates and tutorials are available at Social media accounts are also linked on the site.
