HA! I’ll bet you all thought that I’d forget to post the July question today, since the first Monday of the month snuck up on us, disguised as a holiday and all that in the US. Well, truth be told, I almost did forget, particularly since last night’s fireworks were made all the more enjoyable by several glasses of chilled Gewurztraminer, then I had to get up for work this morning (retail sucks). So today it’s iced tea and ibuprofen. But anyway….on to the question.
Stitching is an activity that tends to be solitary. Sometimes I wonder if we choose stitching because we are more comfortable with pursuits that we do alone, or does our stitching cause us to be loners? So what do you think?
And you know that I can never stop with just one question or thing to think about, so here’s something else that’s been on my mind.
Since we’re stitching alone most of the time, it seems to me that we get great joy from coming together with other stitchers. It can be such a good feeling when we find a group of people who speak our language and understand our stitching excitement and passion. But since not all stitchers are perfect, not all groups can be perfect either. So…if you could create your own perfect stitching group, what characteristics would make it perfect?
For instance, would you all be near the same age, or would you like your group to span a generation or two? Would you enjoy political or religious discussions while you stitch or would that make you shy away? Would you like a big group or a small group? Those are just a couple of variables in groups…tell us what’s important to YOU.
You can leave a comment when you’ve answered the question, if you’d like.
