|From the 80's!!|
Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Okay, I've been doing the commuter/stitching things for a long time now. I just never realized exactly how long it's been. I found this last weekend when I was cleaning out an old jewelry box.
Way back in the 80's, when Prodigy reigned supreme (anyone remember those days when they gave you a floppy disc to load on your computer?), there were a group of stitchers who corresponded via a REC group. We eventually coalesced into a semi-formal group calling ourselves Online Cross Stitchers. For a couple of dollars you could buy the pin. That way when you met up at a stitching festival, you could identify with someone you might have met on line. Times sure have changed! Nowadays with all the different Facebook groups, message boards, and bloggers out in the world, there probably is no need for a pin such as this one. But it's fun to look back and see just how far we've come in the world of cross stitching.
