    • Several years ago, I had seen a product in a cross-stitch magazine that I should have ordered, but didn't. It was an iron-on grid in 14 ct. which could be put on a sweatshirt for crosstitching. Another product was a wash-out fabric in 14 ct. to baste on the garment. After stitching, the garment is washed and the fabric washes out. Does anyone know where I can buy either of these products? Thanks.

    • I have two patterns by Lorraine Birmingham. I found at a yard sale. They are part 1 and part 2 called In The Garden part 1 is Spring Beauties and part 2 is Summer Delights. They were cut out of a magazine but I have no ideal what one. I was wondering if anyone knows and if so is there a fall and winter. If there is I would like to find the patterns. Thank you for your help. If you email me please put pattern in the subject line. Thank you

    • I like counted cross stitch and I understand the basics on how stitches are formed. But I have a real problem with using the charts. I know how to read them; but even when I count the stitches very carefully, the design on the chart often does not correspond to what ends up on the fabric. I'm always careful to mark the middle of the fabric and move from there; and again, I'm careful about counting stitches as I go. But I run into this problem over and over again, even with simple designs. Can someone please help me? This problem makes it somewhat difficult to enjoy the hobby; and I really, really want to. My grandmother used to do counted cross stitch and she was great at it. For reference, I normally use 14-count Aida cloth.

    • 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?
  • Linda Delcamp from Brighton, MI -- Jul 16, 2017
    • 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?

    • Marv, I just want to say what a really enjoyable site you have. I was frequenting 123 stitch but got tired of it quick with all the political posts and mean spirited people that post to them. Someone suggested your site as an alternative and it is truly a blessing. You have a wonderful board that is so pleasant to read and what a cross stitch board should be. My compliments on running a beautiful message board with no drama.

    • hi, I am fixing to try my hand at a Zelda Stained glass cross stitch which is a pretty big piece. I think I have got the material and all down but the picture I saw on you tube was showing them starting at the top side. Do we have to start in the middle or where would be best. Also can I use a hoop or do I need something bigger. Thank you

You could click on the name and see what patterns they had for sale. It was orginal patterns. I did have it in my favorites and I had to have my computer worked on because I downloaded windows 10 an my computer was to old and I lost it. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    • 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 have a ton of patterns, needles, frames and floss that belonged to my sister who passed away and am hoping to donate it. Does anyone know an organization that will accept these items? I am happy to ship wherever, I just hate the thought of throwing these items out.

    • About 12 or so years ago there was a white rose free cross stitch pattern on Mystic Stitch. I'm looking for a copy of that pattern. Does anyone still have it? Mystic Stitch said their file was archived and not available any longer. I'm desperate!
  • 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.

    • 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?
  • 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!
