    • I am looking for a copy of Cross Stitch Crazy magazine issue 219 from July 2016. There is collection of patterns by Emma Congdon called, I believe, "Wise Words". I can't find just the pattern/charts anywhere, nor the back issue of the magazine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to sale all my things but have no idea what to ask. I have over 1000 graphs, books , magazines, and every colore of DMC Sthread on cards in boxes. Can somebody give me some suggestions on how much to ask for each? Some of the graphs are no longer available. I know my Biltmore xHouse ones aren't sold locally anymore. TIA ! 😊

    • I asked before about a magnetic board to hold cross stitch patterns. I was trying to find one that was bigger than the 8 x 10 inch Loran board. I thought I found one, it was 12 x 18 but it wasn't what I wanted. I had to return it. I was thinking about a magnetic dry erase board. I've seen them 8-1/2 x 11 (the size of a piece of paper) but not sure how they would hold up on the folding stand. Do you think this would be too heavy for the stand? Any other thoughts on what else I could use?

    • I was wondering about the Loran 5 x 9 folding stand for holding your charts. Will a large Loran 8 x 12 magnetic board work on this stand? Is there a larger stand or is this the only size stand that they sell? I have only seen them at JoAnn's in the 5 x 9 size. Is there anything else I could use to hold my 8 x 11 inch sheets of my charts?

    • 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!

  • 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.

  • Debbie Pringle from Bear, Delaware -- Mar 12, 2017
    • 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!
