Another editing grumble

This article (in World of Interiors, Oct 2014) is blatantly about weaving, But just look at its title....

Does no-one know anything any more?!

Not if a snappy inaccurate headline leaps to mind!

I always notice that kind of thing - especially in catalogs when a crocheted garment is labelled knitted. Makes me crazy. At least they didn't say "looming on the horizon."

There was a toilet paper commercial here in the states years ago for Quilted Northern. They shows a cartoon of two ladies sitting at a quilt frame using knitting needles to quilt the fabric! Stupid ad men! They did get so much backlash from quilters that they did fix the commercial.

My husband always says 'Never let the truth get in the way of a good story', or in this case a good headline!
