    • Hoping someone can help me. I have a few patterns from Kustom Krafts and I think there may be an issue with the colors as DMC # 647 is used and its a green/grey shade, I am doing a wolf and this color looks wrong, same with #318 it is a blue shade and looks out of place. The other numbers I am using #645, #646 look like they belong and #317 . I have emailed Kustom Krafts twice now to ask about the colors and no one has bothered to respond. Does anyone know if these were some of the colors DMC modified many years ago and if so can someone recommend replacement numbers. I did find an old partial bit of 647 and it is definetly greyer in color. thanks in advance

    • I am wondering if anyone would be able to complete a Counted Cross Stitch Sampler for me? I opened it and realized that my eyes would not be able to complete it. Had bought it years ago for my daughter's son's room. He has passed away, but she still wants it as it will contain his birthdate. Thank you!

    • I have a stack of cross stitch patterns and pattern books that is about 2 feet high. I want to find a place to donate them. I am looking for some place that will give them away to people who could not afford to buy patterns or have lost what they had, in a fire as an example. I am having a very hard time finding anything like that. If I am going to get rid of them, I want them to be given to people who will enjoy them. Is there any place or organization that gives craft or cross stitch supplies to people?

    • I am looking for someone to complete a started cross stitch. The pattern I'm requesting to be completed is the 1999 Midnight Ride pattern from the Gold Collection of dimensions-crafts. It has been started (approx 1/3 completed) but the person who had started it passed before completion and we found it (my Nana) years later. I am happy to provide photos if you need. I have the pattern and materials. Here is an ebay listing so you can see the pattern (I do already have it, this is just for you to see the pattern). https://www.ebay.com/itm/185611178215 This is a sentimental piece for us. Please let me know if you have any questions.

  • Kathy from Georgia -- Apr 06, 2022
    • Trying to help someone locate an out of print fishing pattern. Per her description - I am looking for a pattern that my son saw when he was a kid (like about 15 years or so ago). I didn t buy it then but he still talks about that pattern but I don t even who the pattern was by. It was fishing boat with a fisherman with the above water and the below water scene. Does anyone even have a clue as what I m looking for? In one of her responses, she also said that fish could be seen in the water below. Does this sound remotely familiar to anyone? Thanks!

  • Jac from Canada -- Jan 31, 2022
    • Hi - I ordered 28 count jobelan on line because I thought that was what I had used before. What I received is more like lugana - fine, even threads. The fabric I wanted has thicker threads and the threads are a little uneven but it is still soft and drapes nicely. Any suggestions as to what fabric I am actually wanting would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    • Hi! I am new to the cross stitch world! It s quite addicting! One of the things I have been doing is looking at various flosstube videos on YouTube. Do you have any recommendations? I would appreciate any help this newbie can get! Also does anybody host a zoom sit and stitch?? I think that would be fantastic to join in or maybe I ll start one up! Advice? Feel free to check out my amazingly talented friend. She has become my cross stitch mentor. Though she is relatively new to flosstube she is not new to the crafty world. Here is her link! https://youtu.be/QiKJWqdoV94 Thank you!! Glad I found this place!! Beth

    • I am looking for someone, locally, to finish a project my late mother was working on for my brother. It's the Harley Davidson/Route 66 piece. Sadly, she lost her battle with cancer before she could finish it. I promised her I would find someone to finish it so I figured this would be a good place to start. She had about 50% of it completed. Please email me at socernut@gmail.com if you can help me with this. Thank you!

    • Hi there, I'm working on a stocking for my grandson. It's a Dimensions pattern, model 08820, entitled "Trimming the Tree." I've lost the color chart and the clock is ticking. I've tried everything I can think of to get just the chart. I don't want to buy another one if at all possible. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the item for reference. https://www.amazon.com/Dimensions-Needlecrafts-Counted-Trimming-Stocking/dp/B002CILBA6/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=cross+stitch+stocking+snowman+and+tree&qid=1632302328&s=arts-crafts&sr=1-3
