I am not a huge fan of Martha (mainly because I don't have the time, space, money, or staff to have an orchard, raise chickens, garden, or set the perfect table) but maybe she will help revive needlework with her new book. I know most of my readers are beyond starter cross stitch projects but the interest has to start somewhere. The article in the Chicago Tribune was pretty positive. The article said many other crafts such as quilting, embroidery, basic sewing are also covered.
