Hey guys - I have been wondering about something and maybe you can enlighten me.
Why do (some) people think of embroidery and cross stitching as separate things?
I see people talking about how they used to do cross stitching, but then got into embroidery. Huh? To me, cross stitch is sub-category of embroidery, not a category in itself. I know, there's counted cross stitch, but I would still put that under the Embroidery umbrella - and it wouldn't even stick out at the side and get wet!
Then there are other people who, when you tell them you do embroidery, will say "oh so you do cross stitch?"
What is going on? To some they are two different things and to others one is the same as the other. Am I missing something?
