I lost my temper this morning. The Washington Post had an article on the state of needlepoint in their Home and Garden section this week that made me really really mad. And I'm not the only one.
ANG's Facebook page posted about it, and Catherine commented that the Post has a place where you can upload photos of our "best or most creative sewing and needlepoint projects" to their website. So I did. I uploaded a good number of contemporary needlepoint designs I've worked on this century. I encourage you to do the same. No reason we should let the Home and Garden staff remain ignorant of contemporary needlepoint!
Here's the link to the Post's page where you can upload photographs. You will have to create an account to do so (pick a login and password) and share your email address (I think) but I've had an account with the Post for years and never gotten any spam or advertising from them.
I labeled everything "contemporary needlepoint." Wonder if the Post is listening...?
