An Elegy for Stitcherie

We lost something special last week when Stitcherie disappeared without notice from the Internet.  I noticed a week ago that the site was down for maintenance but it seems to have disappeared entirely now.

Those who participated in the Stitcherie games had a great deal of fun.  Those who just posted photographs of their wonderful needlepoint and enjoyed the stitching of other members have lost something interesting.

But nothing stays the same and on the Internet, interest is fleeting.  I can see the allure of writing blogs has waned.  There are a lot of blogs on my blog list that are defunct now.  The hot place to be these days is Facebook, but designers and shops are starting to post on Instagram and Pinterest.

Will I start to follow things on Instagram or Pinterest?  No.  I have a limited time at my disposal.  I just don't have the time to keep up with other sites these days.

Still, I am sorry to see Stitcherie go.  It was fun while it lasted!

  1. So true. I do keep up with a couple of things on instagram but even facebook is way too much as it takes so long to scroll through stuff. I still love the blogs that I follow but like you am finding that more of them are not being updated. even my own which was weekly for my own pleasure is now monthly, still for my own record.

  2. Wish we all had more hours in the day for the fun stuff!
