    • I can no longer work counted cross stitch due to old age shaking hands and failing eyesight, I have a LOT of items that I would like to donate. Anyone interested, or know a person or organization that would like these materials? OK to re-sell them - I just want them to be used.

    • I have a question about a Lanarte pattern, African Daisy Close-Up. On the page that shows the symbols and the floss to use it shows 2 of the same symbol and the thread is the same. Is this suppose to be blended? I think I didn't get the bottom of the page where it shows the blended threads.

    • To Esther in RI: I would like to do a project that is a 12 x 7 inch stitching area. If I were to add 3-4 inches like you said to do for the border and finishing, how much material would I need? I figured it would be a 16 x 11 piece? Right? Also, what size frame would I need if I were to frame it without a mat board? Linda

    • I'm doing a cross stitch project that is on 14 count Aida cloth that is 163 stitches x 97 stitches. I'm trying to use a LoRain stitch converter that calculates the amount of material to use. I don't understand how to find out how much extra to allow for the framing of the piece. Does anyone know how to work the stitch converter? Also, what would the finished size for getting the frame be?

    • To anyone who does machine embroidery, I have two sets of patterns that are free to a good home. I only hand stitch and when I purchased the patterns, I was sent the machine patterns instead. I did get the hand stitch and offered to mail these back. I was told not to and give them to someone else. The patterns are Vermillions Flower Bears & Holiday Animals and Year of Bunnies and Teddies.

  • Samme from Lafayette LA -- Feb 14, 2014
    • Is it possible, or how difficult is it to reduce a design to "small"? There are several patterns I would like to stitch for my home, however, home is an RV. We full time and are on the road all year. Not having a lot of open wall, decorations must be scaled down. The designs I like are all fairly large, 8x10, 12x20, 16x20, etc. Can they be reduced to a 5x7? I like using a 14 count aida. I had found one on here that I'm currently stitching, Island Sunset, that shows in all 3 formats, large, small and bookmark....so I supposed it might be possible? Thanks for the feedback!

    • I'm afraid I've been spoiled by all the beautiful cross stitch magazines and now prefer only to work with colored patterns. Is there a way to add color to the black and white PDF's from this site? I'm willing to put in the time to select each square and add the color (although I don't know why they can't offer a color option, I'd pay a little more for that!)

    • I heard and read online this weekend that Michael's craft stores were hit with the same security breach like Target. The article did not give a particular timeframe, I would only assume it happened around the Holidays too. Check your statements with unusual use on your bank / credit union debit cards. If I hear anymore on this! I'll pass it along as soon as I know.
  • Samme from Lafayette LA -- Jan 24, 2014
    • I was considering joining the club here for "pattern shopping". I downloaded a free one to check out the process. I was wondering, do they all download on multiple pages? I find it a little disconcerting. I downloaded the country birdhouse, but it separates onto two pages. Is this normal? Is there a way to get it on one page? I've always brought regular patterns or kits before, but would like to try the online process. Thanks!! :)
  • Brandy from Dallas, TX -- Jan 22, 2014
    • I am in search of a collector or an appraiser. My uncle left me his cross stitching. They are beautiful and many oriental patterns. Some are tapestries and large. They are professionally framed. These stitching a have own awards from Texas state fair and I have the ribbons. I will not be able to display all and want others to enjoy them. My email is brandysjenkins@gmail.com.
