Is Cross Stitch Still Popular? Why cross stitch is not a dying art

Is Cross Stitch Still Popular? Why cross stitch is not a dying art | Counted Cross Stitch News | Scoop.it


Someone asked, “Is cross stitch still popular?” Yes indeed it is! In fact, it’s booming! For those of you who think cross stitch is going out of style or is dead, that is absolutely not the case. You may bemoan the fact that stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc. no longer carry a wide variety of patterns anymore. That’s because a lot of the market has moved to online sites and stores that cater just to cross stitchers. My store is one of them (
http://stores.sunrayscreations.com), although we might branch out into additional avenues like crochet, etc.

Cross Stitch is a Stress Reliever

Cross stitch, in itself, seems to be on the rise and is kept alive in many ways. As we live our daily lives and come in contact with more stress than ever before in many forms, cross stitch time and time again has been a staple to calm our nerves, give us the avenue to think about and sort out our problems, and come to a methodical, well thought-out answer to our problems. Stitching allows you to see your problems in a more relaxed setting. In times of trouble, people go back to what makes them feel good—the thing that comforts them. In times where you don’t want to talk to anyone about your stress except God through prayer, cross stitch has been the go-to medicine therapeutic in its value working hand in hand to help you sort things out. Giving your hands something constructive to do while creating a thing of beauty is far better than walking around with balled up fists and wringing your hands helplessly over a problem you’re wrestling with.

Cross Stitch Carries on Traditions

Many people carry on the tradition of cross stitching to the next generation by teaching their children the art so that you have many generations of stitchers who are proud to pass on the tradition. I taught my daughters how to perform counted cross stitch, and we use it as a bonding time when we all stitch together while watching a good movie.


Cross stitch also lives on when customers purchase a special pattern, create a work of art from it, and give it to a family member on a special occasion. That finished piece is then passed down through generations as a precious heirloom to be enjoyed and admired for years to come.


How Popular is Cross Stitch? Do a Google Search

Cross stitch is still very popular by virtue of the volume of businesses springing up on the Internet. If you get on the Internet, there are hundreds of websites where you can order patterns of your choice. In fact, I typed in the words “cross stitch” in Google Search and over 27 million entries showed up in as little as 0.66 seconds. Hopefully cross stitch will always be popular and will continue into the future for many years to come. If you cross stitch, you can help keep the art alive in the ways discussed in this article. We all have a responsibility, and that is to get out our trusty needles and start stitching and teach this valued art to others!
