There is a horrible disorder stalking the needlepoint community — BCD or Black Canvas Disorder For most it begins with stitching on black canvas. Then it expands to include stitching areas painted black. In its worst form the disorder expands to include other dark colors such as brown, dark gray or even navy.
I confess I have it — do you?
Jen Funk-Weber has cured her BFD (Black Fabric Disorder, she’s a cross stitcher) and wants to help us cure our own terrible plight. She’s written a blog post with lots of suggestions on what to do.
And no, changing fabric is not the first suggestion, it’s 5 of 6.
