Is counted cross stitch dead in America?
I wanted to post a query here, but I noticed that the last entry was Oct 20th. Is there any real interest in counted cross stitch? My daughter who is 48 implied "how old fashioned!" People are now too busy on iPad or iPhone or Internet with an interest span of a few minutes. So like a library of old books of interest to a particular reader, cross stitch material, patterns, and other supplies should be filed away and left dormant forever. My wife had won blue ribbons at the Topsfield Fair in Massachusetts in the early 1990's, and these hang on our walls and look very good. So that is what is left. As the older generation dies away, all that skill will be lost.
