EmbroideREAD with Sam Irby’s Wow, No Thank You.

If you’ve read Samantha Irby’s hilarious collection of essays, you know that she is the queen of cozying up inside. The New York Times agrees, saying Wow, No Thank You. is “as fitting a response to 2020 as I can imagine. . . . Wildly, seditiously funny. . . . [Irby] knows what it means to live with a fair amount of panic and largely indoors.”

In the spirit of Samantha Irby, we’ve created the perfect indoor activity that you can do while sitting on your couch in your pajamas in the middle of the afternoon, all while watching Judge Mathis on TV. As we approach the fall and spend more time under the covers, embroidery is a great way to entertain ourselves.
