Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”.

Spam. It’s become a part of life. It’s also become an inspiration some of my favorite stitchers.

Carina Envoldsen-Harris aka wardi made this lovely spambroidery inspired by the subject line of a spam email she received. In an effort to understand it, she looked it up and found it is actually a line from this poem. Interesting use of literature. 🙂

Cauchy decided to take the spam that she and her friends had received and convert them into embroidery with the end goal of turning all of them into a quilt. Here’s some of my favorites so far:




There are more in this set – and it seems to keep growing every time I look. Wait, that sounded like one of those spam phrases. EVERYTHING seems to have a double meaning now!

I hope you enjoyed this look at spam stitchery. See you next week!
