Stitching: Solitary or Solitude?

After reading years of books, magazines, and web content about stitchers and their stitching, I have noticed one prominent theme. We typically stitch alone.

id_rather_be_crossstitchingAre we all loners? Not at all! I don’t think so. There are many who like to stitch with friends, as a group, maybe even belong to a guild.

facebook-conversationsWhen we took down the old Stitching the Night Away we moved over to a Facebook community because it seemed like an easy spam-free solution for the group. And it was working out fabulously until very recently when Facebook made some huge changes on how pages you’ve liked are delivered to your newsfeed. [Read more…]
