    • I can help!! I have been cross-stitching for over 37 years and I am here to help you get those unfinished cross-stitch projects finally completed! Email me if you are interested: ilbretashley@flawless-society.com Pricing will depend on how large the project is and how much of it is already completed. I am currently helping a new customer finish a Christmas stocking and I love doing it.

    • 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

    • 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

  • Tess from Belgrade, ME -- Jan 23, 2021
    • I'm somewhat of a newbie and need help re-sizing the pattern American Gold Finch which I purchased on this site. a A couple questions: 1) How do you calculate a pattern you have which is 9"x10" on 14 count and you want the finished size to be about 7"x8"? 2) how do you figure if a pattern is too intricate to be downsized, maybe because you lose the details? It is a Gold Finch bird with numerous gradient colors in the wings and body. Sorry, if I am not clear in my questions, not sure how to phrase what I don't know. Thanks for any advice. Tess

    • I am looking for someone who is familiar with Dee s Reverse-Eeze method of reversible cross stitch, and is willing to share that method with me. I purchased Dee s booklet in 1994 and used it for the first three rows of Graphworks International Afghan Safari II . Now I want to finish that afghan for a future great grandchild (I turn 80 in Jan), but have lost Dee s booklet. I last worked on the afghan 14 years ago and can t remember/ can t reconstruct how I did the stitches. I have searched the internet for Dee s booklet with no success.

  • Melanie from oklahoma city -- Nov 22, 2020
    • I started a Christmas afghan a VERY long time ago. I have the pattern and floss, but no pattern code for the design. I have a copy of the design taped together but no information where it came from. Any suggestions? Is there a uniform code for colors? It is the twelve days of Christmas stacked on top each other to form a Christmas tree, I think it must have come from a magazine.
