This excellently written article byÂ Marni Jameson for the Denver Post, entitled “Needlepoint Can Mend Our Frayed Lives“, captures the many blessings bestowed upon humanity by needlepoint. Some of her points:
- I am often torn between shooting vodka and needlepointing (me: no need to choose! Try the new needlepoint flasks from Smathers and Branson).
- I share the satisfaction other needle artists feel when they witness the slow- bloom of something take shape under their own hand
- The more that high-technology infiltrates our homes, the more I crave things made by human hands (me: not sure about this fact – have they not invented a needlepointing machine yet?).
Read the whole article, it’s worth your time. Don’t miss her bullet points at the end.
