'Breakfast Club' Makes Needlepoint Cool Again

Cross-stitching, long the realm of grandmothers, Whitman's Chocolate samplers and the opening credits to the '80s TV horror show "Mama's Family," reeks of nostalgia. The bad kind. The kind that usually manifests itself in a lecture from an elderly person who may or may not be related to you. But it doesn't have to be that way. 

This "Breakfast Club" cross-stitch sampler a BuzzFeed user discovered on Flickr proves that taking something tainted by the social security crowd's blurry whimsical views of "the way things used to be" and splicing it with the magic of "the ways things kind of were" from John Hughes' 1984's "The Breakfast Club" can be pretty amazing.

Weirdly Hughes' band of misfits come across looking like a screenshot from the mythical Nintendo 8 bit "Breakfast Club 2" game.

Suitable for framing in 5x7 or 4x6.
