    • How would I go about identifying a pattern? My late mother was working on a cross stitch piece when she passed away 20 years ago. I recently came upon it, but the pattern was not with the piece. It is an old fashioned Santa. I would greatly appreciate any guidance. Thank you.

    • What brand of cotton embroidery thread is used in Needle Treasure Cross Stitch kits? I want to convert thread colors to DMC. Don't have actual kit threads, but do have numbers designated for each thread color for threads in the kit. Knowing what brand of thread is used in their kits would help in converting to DMC thread colors. I did try matching supplied thread color numbers with DMC numbers, resulted in no matches. Tried matching name of thread color to DMC color name. Resulted in a small amount of matches. Thank you. Appreciate you reading my post and responding if you are able to help.

    • I recently purchased a Dimensions kit #70-65148, Frog Parking. When I opened it up some of the paper ripped off the chart. I was wondering if anyone knows where or maybe what website I can try to either get a replacement color chart or print one out? I have the aida fabric and thread, I just need the color chart for this kit.

  • Hilarie L from Waterford, CT -- Nov 18, 2019
    • Hi! I'm hoping someone can help me, and this is the correct place to post. I'm looking to possibly hire someone to do a couple of embroidery kits from the 1980s. I need both of these kits duplicated 4 times (so long as I can find enough of the kits to do that) and I'm hoping to have them done by Christmas. I have reached out to local embroidery shops but I guess people dont do hand embroidery anymore. If anyone has any interest in giving me a quote on possibly doing these kits, I would appreciate it. The kits are an angel tree topper from Columbia minerva #7275 and the other is a nativity set from Daydreams by dick Martin #822. Thanks in advance!

  • Pam from Kalamazoo, MI -- Sep 28, 2019
    • Help!! I subscribed to this site to make my own pattern for quotes and poems with a border. I'm trying to do a quote which I would like to be an 8 x 10. I'm using font #3 and border #18. I've tried all different heights and widths. The closet I got when I did the preview pattern says 6.9 inches by 9.4 inches which I think would work. When I hit create pattern it says 6.9 inches by 10.2 inches which won't work, what am I doing wrong changing the font doesn't seem to help. I really want to get started on this for a gift and suggestions would be helpful.

  • Stephanie Wilt from Goldsboro, NC -- May 03, 2019
    • I just finished the chart "let's rock the 70s". I did it on a light yellowish brown and off white blended fabric. My son's favorite colors are baby blue and dark green, so the cleff is 3 shades of baby blue, the words are dark green, purple, dark blue and dark grey w/blak outline. Everyone at the frame shop commented on it. Looking forward to doing another "word" pattern.

  • Beverly Lewis from Yorktown, Va -- Mar 27, 2019
    • Again I am asking for help. The same pattern I was looking for before needs two more numbers that seem to be allusive. they are 764 and 965. Nowhere can they be found on any chart, or any store, and I have been to all of them. Don't even know what color family they are in.
  • Claire Manning from Downers Grove, IL, USA -- Mar 25, 2019
    • Looking for someone to finish a Teresa Wentzler Collection Peacock Tapestry cross stitch for me, since I have a lot of wrist problems and it hurts too much to do repetitive work like this anymore. I started years ago as a gift for mom and dad, and then life happened. Involves lots of mixing thread colors together, etc. Bead accent on border. Pretty complex. Probably two-thirds complete. I have it on a frame that rolls at top and bottom so easier to handle. Can send pics if interested, so you can better estimate cost and time needed to complete.
