We are used to a world in which things are mass produced, not a world in which things are made in small batches by artisans.    If you look at your current needlepoint project and imagine all the work that went into producing the materials you are using, well, you can see why teachers (and shops and stitchers) sometimes feel frustrated.  We are very lucky to be living when we do when so much is available but it is not a perfect world with everything you wish for at your fingertips.

Maybe in my next lifetime....
