    • Hi! I am looking for a very obscure pattern - the photo appeared as a first place winner for a candle screen design in an issue of either Cross Stitch and Country Crafts or Cross Quick (so late 80s-early 90s), but one had to send away for it since it wasn't the winning pattern. It is by Robin Clark and features a Colonial American couple with "1776" over their heads and "One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, one nation evermore" beneath. If you have it to sell, I'd love to buy it from you! I am always looking for Robin's designs and had not recalled this one. Thanks!

    • I'm starting a new cross stitch project and was wondering what is the best way to prepare the fabric for stitching? Also, I like to work with a scroll frame and wonder what is the best one that any of you use? I'm using a Homecrafter's scroll frame but don't quite know how to put the fabric in the split of the dowels. Does anyone know how to do this?

  • Sharon from Tampa, Florida -- Apr 08, 2017
    • I am brand new to cross stitching. Would like to ask if it is necessary to soak the floss before starting my project. I did not soak my very first project but my second one that I am about to start states to soak the dark colors before starting. ( the first kit didn't state this). And, is DMC a better quality floss that does not need soaking? Pretty sure this kit's floss is not DMC.

    • Longtime cross stitcher, but always on Aida. Attempting baby sampler for first grandchild and was talked into 28 count linen. I'm all set to start and have practiced the stitch enough, BUT here's my question. If I am stitching over two threads (which I get)...when I look at my chart to start and I need to go down 4 squares (on chart) is it down 4 squares on fabric or 8? If there is one square between design on chart, do I leave one little square or double it to 2? So confused! Thanks for the help if you even understand the question!

    • 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!
