    • Hello. I am in love with your caption maker and use it all the time. I have one concern though, that you don't include symbols, like @ # % & etc. is there a possibility that this could be done ? I would really appreciate it and it would make my life a lot easier. Regards Helga

    • I want to cross-stitch stockings for my 2 children (now 23 and 20). I have the patterns from my Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazines which I have saved all these years - LOL. My question is one of the patterns says to use a 14" X 20" Lugana 25 ct. fabric and states "not recommended for Aida fabric". I wanted to use 14 ct. Aida. I've never used the Lugana fabric. Can anyone provide me with info on why it wouldn't be wise to use Aida Fabric? and why Lugana would be better. Appreciate any info. Thank you!

    • Hi! I bought 3 Cross Stitch Collectibles fingertip towels at a thrift store recently--you know, the ones with the 14 count border. They are brand new with tags. I used these years ago, but I can't remember if they should be washed before or after crossstitching the border. They are so stiff. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    • I do counted cross stitch for hire. Do you have a project that you started and never finished or never started at all and would love to have it completed? I have been stitching for over 30 years and would love to help you out. I was a Ghoststitcher for a while until the company went out of business. I can do most anything and have pictures of past work and references. If you are interested, you can email me at sppuff@sbcglobal.net. I would love to hear from you.

  • Elizabeth from South Carolina -- Oct 22, 2016
    • Need help with caption maker. It is a rather long verse a friend originally had it charted by a company which sent her the chart from crosstitch.com. The notes from the person who did the chart indicates 160 tall x 130 wide and to cut fabric 18"tall and 16" wide. They used Font #3 and 14 count fabric. How do I find the center to start stitching the design? Also, when I charted it on caption maker I used 14 and also 16 count fabric. It comes out as four pages, which I believe means I need to cut and paste the word endings for the various lines. Also, it cuts into the middle of a line so the top and bottom of one line are on two different pieces of the chart. So I will need to match that up as well The 16 count version left off a line at the end even thought it shows on the copy. Thank you for your consideration. I can send you the two charts if that would help.

    • Any suggestions where to find counted cross-stitch patterns of famous artists? I used to order from Uncharted Territory but that site is no longer available. I find that the patterns from Cross Stitch Collectibles do not adapt to pillow-size in 16-count. Plus, I just completed a HUGE one from them and the finished colors in no way relate to the original painting. Any suggestions as to a site similar to Uncharted Territory?

    • I have over 20 counted cross-stitch patterns that I have completed and would like to provide to anyone...free except for postage. They range from Christmas Stockings to Matisse. Van Gogh, Renoir, Waterhouse. All are complete charts/color, symbol keys and in excellent condition. I only ask that they all be sent at one time...simply too much trouble to send individually. Please e-mail if you are interested.
  • Nancy M from Golden, Co -- Sep 26, 2016
    • I am looking for a pattern. My sister started something and I would like to finish it. It is an Amish pattern. At the top is a quilt in each corner. There are spools of thread along the sides. Then there are two Amish girls. Below them she started on the left putting a quilt. There a saying in it as well. At the top is says: Whatever time I am afraid...... then at the bottom it says....I turn to you. My sister has passed away and it would mean a lot to me to find the pattern and finish this piece. I have looked through all her things and just can't find it. Thanks so much for your help!

  • Catherine from Williamsburg -- Sep 23, 2016
    • I'm looking for the title of a book from the 1970, I think. It was a "break the rules" type of cross stitch. Stitches aren't the same size or in a row. Little stices & big stiches combine to make a free form picture. One exercise she had in the book, along with pictures of what her students did with it, was to create a picture of a scarecrow. I hope someone remembers this book. My local library no longer has it.

    • I have the pattern for "Downton Abbey". I purchased the kit and have finished my cross stitch. Easy to stitch. I made a working pattern and the original pattern is in excellent condition. If anyone would like this pattern I will mail it to you for $5 which will cover postage. The first stitcher that emails me will receive this pattern.
  • Joanne Lipkind from Germantown, Maryland -- Aug 25, 2016
    • I was wanting to add names and a wedding date on my piece.I have cross stitched the picture and now I am trying to figure out how to get the names on there. Should I just back stitch them on or trace the names with a marker and cover it up with the thread? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
  • Donna Jackson from Sacramento, Ca -- Aug 23, 2016
    • I'm trying to figure out some math. .. my brain is fried and I'm trying to determine what is the half of 2 3/4". Can anyone who is a pro of stitching (I'm not a novice, but not an advanced stitcher) answer me or better yet, point me in the direction to find the answer myself. Yours is the third site I looked at. I got to 1 1/4" on each side but the last 1/4" had me stumped. ... oh wait.... the half of that becomes 1/8", right? So it becomes 1 2/3"? Right? *sigh* math is not my strongest quality. Most of the time is straight forward. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
