I think seperating them would be a great idea.  I love how the Sublime embroidery is in it's own category.

i agree, now that machine embroidery is separated, it'd be nice if xstitch was separated too.

Now that I look I'm not sure about this. My question would be how would it be separated?

Each kind of stitching have its own section. What I mean by that: Cross Stitch, Embroidery, Tatting, etc.? Would that be breaking up the needlework section too much?

Well, when I originally started this thread there was no separation in the needlework board, so I envisioned it exactly like I wrote. The completed projects would be separate, but the discussion area would still be the same. Now that machine embroidery has it's own completed and discussion board, I don't know. I just think it would be nice to have crosstitch and hand embroidery completed projects separate, since they really are quite different. The separation of machine embroidery makes me think this is even more necessary. As far as tatting and crewel, etc. I figured that could all fall under hand embroidery. So in Lily's perfect world I envision:

hand embroidery completed projects
crossstitch completed projects
machine embroidery completed projects
sublime stitching completed projects
stitchalongs
discussions and questions (all types combined)

That's 6 separations, which is the amount we currently have.

I like lilyvanili's vision with the discussion and questions together and I strongly second that cross stitch and needlepoint have their own board together and I don't mind keeping tatting and crewel with the hand embroidery.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Here's kinda the way I envision it:
Cross stitch/needlepoint completed projects
Embroidery completed projects
Machine embroidery completed projects
Sublime Stitching
Needlework discussion
Stitchalongs
Pretty much the same way lilyvanili's thinking. I think that seems fair and pretty specific. I think when you start separating out everything as far as discussion it might go too far.

I approve this message. Smiley

Seriously, lillyvanilli and kittykill have obviously thought this out, and I can see how this would be more easily read.
