    • I'm looking for a cross-stitch pattern of a Poem, written by Beth Norman Harris called "A Dog's Prayer." If there is not one, I would like to know what I need to do to have one made for me. I'm not the best at the computer thing, so any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    • This is a longshot, I realize, but help. I lost several finished needlepoints to - shall we say - The Flood of 2012. I rarely do kits because of the quality but these two I couldn't resist. I've been able to replace one of them, but the second one has been a challenge. Not sure whose kit it was, believe I bought it in the mid- to late-'70s. I'm thinking Dimensions but it might have been Bucilla, one of the well-known brands. It was two carousel horseheads, the one in the foreground was white and I think the one in back was smaller and brown. All I remember for sure is there was a lot of red, white & blue in it. Anybody recall that item, maybe have a clue to put my feet pointing in the right direction toward replacing it? Thanks for any clues or help.

    • I am stumped by an EXTREMELY complex pattern which, when finished, will be a gorilla family. The pattern consists of 30 different numbers and symbols, most of which are stitched one at a time. How do I finish each stitch? Do I tie them off in the back? How do I keep track of the various flosses? I'm so confused that I can't even relate my problem clearly. I would really appreciate some advice.

    • I am looking to get some cross-stitching supplies for my Wife for Christmas and have no idea what to get. She is a beginner and I'm unsure what essentials are needed. Thread, colored thread, magnifer, light. She makes 5x7 framed pieces. Can someone give me some ideas? Thanks!

    • so when I cross stitch, I go from right to left, the X's look aligned. Now when I have a row of single X's going upward, if you do stitches upward, the look of the project is going to make the X's look different. How do you all handle when you have a row of like 10 stitches going upward (like when making a tree branch). do you do the whole X, one at a time, or what do you do to make the upwards X's look like the same as the left to right x's?

    • 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 am looking for a good software that will allow me to upload patterns that I have purchased with some sort of a mark through feature so you don't loves your spot. I have a vision problem so just blowing up the paper on the copier doesn't work. Any help greatly appreciated.
  • Kathy from West Columbia SC -- Nov 29, 2017
    • Any tips on multi page charts? I bought the Janlyn guardian angel kit and it is 9 pages. I tried to copy it, but pages are too large to make photo copies. I even tried the copier at my work and still to large. I have never done anything over 1 page and is a little intimidating.

    • Hello this is a long shot but has anyone ever bought from MysticStitch.com? I have been ordering from this website for over nine years but the last order I placed in July has never arrived and they will not tell me why. They won't even email me back. Paid through PayPal so it's past the 60 days.

    • 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 returned from buying the DMC Water Soluble Waste Canvas and need to comment on it. The YouTube tutorial looks very easy, but it takes quite a bit of fussing with the pins to get the canvas on straight. Then the basting moved the canvas again and puckered the sweatshirt fabric. There must be a better way! Please Marv, try to find that iron-grid I've mentioned. I've looked everywhere with no luck. Maybe you could design it and solve our problems.

    • 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

    • I am looking for the name of a cross stitch site that when you went to it you had the patterns designer listed in alphabetical order. 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

    • 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!
