"iPhone Killed the Needlepoint Star"

I stumbled across this article about life in the 1970s as seen through a magazine slanted towards women. 
http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/01/a-trove-of-history-as-1970s-housewives-lived-it/283307/

Sadly, the author is no more up to date on needlepoint than the style of sheets popular in the 1970s as he certainly doesn't understand how folks use their iPhones to check stitch diagrams, talk to other needlepointers on Facebook, or upload photos of their current project to their blog.  However, I like needlepoint's being the stealth hobby, something done on the sly and under the radar.

Enjoy the article!
