    • My husband passed January 31, 2020 and I am getting back to doing some cross stitching. I finished most of Chorus Line by Valerie Pfeiffer except for a few symbols I am not sure of. I have started the outline sheet, no problems there. Thanks for looking. Lucie iweararedhat.blogspot.com

    • 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.

    • Good morning, I have a question on using a 28 size needle. I am working on 18 ct aida. I'm having a terrible time threading the needle. The threader I have doesn't fit in the hole so I used a regular sewing needle threader and after several times it broke. How do you thread a 28 size needle. That so much.

    • Hi there. Wondering if anyone clever is able to take an image/design I have in mind and make it a cross stitch pattern for me? I have tried an online pattern generator but can't make it work. I will pay for the service. Would be looking to get a PDF pattern that I can download and print out. Thanks!

    • About 2 years ago , I bought a half finished kit on a frame from a charity shop . It seems to be of a river scene with a large tree with yellow leaves on one side and a spruce/ pine tree on the other side . It seems to be 4 pages long . Sadly it doesn't have a chart, so I can't finish it . It remind me of a Mary Hickmott or John Clayton picture , but I have looked online and I am unable to match it to any of their charts . I would love to finish the picture!
  • Christine from Delaware -- Oct 19, 2020
    • Im looking for an old sampler pattern. The pattern and design are about 20-25 years old. It looks traditional and has part of the Robert Frost poem "Stopping by woods on a snowy evening" The top part is the alphabet and the middle has the quote "For i have promises to keep and miles to go before i sleep". I have the top of the pattern but have lost the bottom and have already started the piece. Any ideas about who the designer is or pattern title would be greatly appreciated. This piece was to be for my mother as it was her favorite poem. I had started it but she passed away rather suddenly and i was unable o finish it. I was hoping it would help with healing if I could finally finish it as I have hung on to it for all of these years. Thanks for any help :)

    • I have lost the pattern and color chart to a small autumn wreath that I last worked on in 2001. The worked part of the pattern measures 6 inches square on 18 count Aida cloth. The colors are soft greens , deep burgundy, and burnt oranges, and there appear to be clusters of blueberries as part of the design. I could provide a photo of the part I have completed if that would be helpful. Sorry this is so vague! Just hoping something about this description might lead to info on the pattern. Thank you, Paula.

  • Maggie from Anchorage, AK -- Aug 17, 2020
    • I had to take out and start over on a project (miscounted majorly on first attempt). It's on aida cloth and in the process of taking out stitches, I accidentally cut two strands on the weave in the aida cloth. The square is still intact, but is there anyway to ensure it does not unravel, or do I have any choices besides completely starting over? The aida cloth is a specific color and I'm having trouble finding something comparable.

    • I am looking for Hester's Needle patterns (Janie Appelbaum). I have several, with No. 22 Heaven's Gate as the "last" one - although I am unsure if there are more. She's so talented and I would love to stitch all of them! Please email me and thanks very much.
  • Marv Schier from Crosstitch.com -- Jul 11, 2020
    • I just want to clear up some questions posted here about copyright: Copying a pattern to give to someone else is illegal. It takes money out of the pockets of the talented, hard working designers who are just trying to make a living. Out-of-print patterns that can no longer be purchased may be a gray area, but educational use is for use in a school classroom ONLY (not your craft group). Actually, educational use only allows copying small parts of a book, etc. Copying anything in it's entirety is still illegal! (otherwise schools would buy 1 textbook and just make copies). Please do the honest thing and support our cross-stitch designers by buying their patterns and honoring the law. Thanks!

    • Hello! I am a keen stitcher but hopeless with designing. I wonder if there is anyone who can design a pattern for me to stitch from a badge. My brother has been awarded this honour and I want to capture it but I cannot get anything to look right! Thank you. Of course I am happy to pay - within reason
  • Aizel from Indiana -- Jul 24, 2020
    • I am trying to create a name pattern using the generator that would be 3in (height) x 10in (width) on a fabric that is 11 boxes per inch using Font #4. Every time, I input those parameters, the pattern output still gives me 19 boxes (height) to work with. And counting 19 boxes on the fabric DOES NOT give me the 3 inches height that I want. So I am actually not sure if my parameters are correct? I am a newbie, and I am not sure if my calculations are right? I just want my overall output to be 3 inches x 10 inches on the fabric.
  • Pat Blake from Cutler, OH -- Jul 16, 2020

  • Holly from SALEM, Va -- Jul 15, 2020
    • I have always read that the dominant color in a half cross stitch should be the darkest color but unsure in the Jeanette Crews Portrait of the Civil War Confederate Battle Flag. Anyone here know if it's the tan color over the blue or red color.

    • Is there a way to search a database using an image of a cross stitch pattern I made about 25 years ago. I can upload a photo of the image. It is 12 boxes, 3 over 4, each one representing a month of the year with an image. Not the name of the month. So for October there is a pumpkin for instance.
  • Andre Albrecht from Leverkusen, Germany -- Jun 22, 2020
    • I love to stitch your Word-patterns. Did one, with the sewing-machine for my wife and let's get styled for one of my daughters. My second daughter works as a podiatrist, do you have a pattern for that? Maybe a footprint with the typical words? Would be a great gift. Greetings from Germany, Andr Albrecht
  • Kaylin from TX -- Jun 07, 2020
    • Hello! I am looking to see if anyone else owns the Art of Disney 35th Anniversary Cross Stich kit, and would be willing to share a photo of a portion of the pattern with me. I have had this kit for years, and have unfortunately lost a section of the pattern. Super obscure request, but please let me know!
