The Michael Gove Voodoo Pincushion

September 2013

My first delve into the world of what would later be named crochet satire came in the form of the Michael Gove Voodoo Pincushion. My punishment for creating this was to spend the best part of the next two years making them. Michael Gove and his wife bought one each (for each other) for Christmas. Crazy times.

He caused quite a stir, it must be said - much of which you can see for yourself on my Press Page - but the highlight would surely have to be the terrifying moment it appeared on BBCs Have I Got News For You.
