    • 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!

    • I am searching for the Alphabet Piddlings patterns by Little By Little Design Co. Specifically the letters U through Z. I have the other letters, but have actually never seen these upper letters. Wondering if anyone actually has ever seen them before! Do they really exist? Any information is greatly appreciated or if anyone can point me to where I may purchase them. Thanks so much!!!
  • 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.

    • I am new to cross stitching. I Would like to ask if it is necessary to soak the floss before starting my project. I did not soak my first project but my second one that I am about to start states to soak the dark colors before starting. Is DMC a better quality floss that does not need soaking?

    • I just purchased the Gnomes in the Garden. My late father loved his garden and filled it with gnomes. I'd love to add angel wings to the male gnome. Could I not stitch the lady, move the guy to the middle of the wheelbarrow and add wings? Would the designer be okay with that? Thanks
