    • Hi all! I love the stitching process & watching the picture take shape, but I have to admit that I very rarely have had pieces framed. Are there others like me? What do you do with the finished pieces? Will people buy a piece to have framed? Give them away? Your thoughts, please?

    • Ultimate Cross Stitch Wildlife Magazine Vol 5 I am looking for a few of the original issues of the Ultimate Cross Stitch Magazine Vol 1 Samplers, vol 2 Sentiments, vol 3 Cards, vol 5 Wildlife (this issue especially) and vol 7 Christmas. The books were printed for the craft stores and are out of print. They are proving very hard to find. If anyone has these I am willing to purchase them or make some kind of exchange. If you know where I can find them any information will greatly be appreciated. Thanks Anita

    • We are expecting our first grandchild in June, 2019 and have always dreamed about doing a cross stitch with the lyrics to the Bob Dylan song, Forever Young. I have found a pattern with this but I am not wild about it. Does anyone know if there are people out there that design cross stitch patterns? I know this is a big ask :)

    • I am looking for an old cross stitch pattern. It was a baby blanket on Anne cloth with window panes with pink trim. Every other pane had a baby chick or bunny. I thought it was Just Cross Stitch but could be wrong.

    • I m embroidering LOTS of kitchen towels, bibs, burp rags , pillow cases etc.....how do I protect the thread from unraveling in the wash if I chose not to knot my thread but rather run the ends thru other stitches. I prefer no knots but worry about unraveling. Thanks in advance!

    • I am doing a backstitch alphabet using waste canvas for a baby birth announcement. How do I do the stitch that seems to be contained within one square of the waste canvas? It does not cross other threads. FYI: your Caption Maker is wonderful.

    • I am new to cross stitching. I Would like to ask if it is necessary to soak the floss before starting my project. I did not soak my first project but my second one that I am about to start states to soak the dark colors before starting. Is DMC a better quality floss that does not need soaking?

    • Aloha, my mother Judith was an avid cross-stitcher. When she passed away I inherited a bunch of her supplies and patterns. I have been going thru old containers and trying to get rid of stuff that I don't need, and would like to find a way for her supplies to go to someone(s) who would really appreciate it. I wouldn't mind getting some $ for it, but I'm not interested in trying to sell each individual piece on eBay or Etsy or whatever, so I might want to sell it all as one big lot or break it into a few lots. So I'm looking for guidance on the best way to do this. Anyone who is interested in it, or would be so kind as to offer me some pointers on where to sell/move it, would be much appreciated.

    • I am looking for either the kit or chart of a Janlynn cross stitch bell pull. It has a picture of four little bears and gifts. I found one on eBay and paid for it, but it unfortunately got lost in transit. I cannot find another one anywhere, my only hope is if someone has stitched it and still has the chart. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    • Years ago I stitched seat covers for my antique dining room set. It took a long time, but when it was finished, it was stunning. Each piece was totally stitched (no aida showing around the design) then stapled and covered with a thin clear plastic. I eventually sold the set. Now I'm in the country and would like to do the same thing, but wildlife scenes. I've selected a few from this sight, but I don't know how to expand the pattern to fit the 24 x 24 size i need and I don't want to just put a border around it unless I have to. I don't want to do anything bigger than 14 count. Is this even possible? thanks for any help.

    • Hi! I'm about to embark on a huge project. It's the Supersized Four Seasons Max Colors. Finished project is about 40 inches square on 25 count linen, over one. There are 234 colors. My questions are: have you used the DMC Stitch Bow system and do you like it and, where do you think I can most easily and cheaply get, I'm guessing, 400 or so skeins of DMC floss? Any help is welcome! Thanks, Bill
