    • 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.

It is so hard to me because of all the changing of threads. I was looking for somebody to finish it for me and what it would cost, Thank you for your help.. Do you know how I could attach the pattern for you to see it? I dont have any time limit that it needs to be done.

    • I have just about given up cross stitching At 80yrs there is no way on Gods green earth I could do all the patterns I have collected over the years. So with that said. I have leaflets on all subjects. If there is something you are looking for let me know. I will also have fabric and floss available at a later date. let me know. I will charge a small fee for my time and whatever the cost of postage is.

    • I have a completed cross stitch that my husband wants to make into a clock. The center mechanism goes right through some stitching and the mechanism is about 1/4 inch in diameter. He wants a hole added to put the mechanism through. What can I do to protect the stitching around the hole so it doesn t ravel? Thanks

    • I am an advanced stitcher. I love to stitch large and detailed religious pictures, usually based on classical paintings and traditional Catholic art. I am having a hard time finding patterns I like ever since The Holy Needle went out of business years ago. I've tried using free online pattern-making programs to turn photos of public-domain religious pictures into patterns, but they always mess up the colors real bad. Skin tones are always lemon yellow, pale colors become vibrant, and medium colors go dark. It is frustrating to say the least. I would be more than happy to pay for quality pattern-making software, but I want to be sure it won't mess up the color palette before investing money in it. Also, how easy it is to edit the auto-generated pattern is an important consideration so I can fix speckles, replace colors that don't belong, etc. Does anyone have recommendations either for programs you like or ones to stay away from?

    • Does anyone know of a needlepoint yarn shop near La Crescenta, California, where 3-ply Persian wool yarns are sold by the strand? The only store I know is The Yarn Barn in San Antonio, TX. I have a needlepoint Christmas stocking that I want to do, but I do not want to use embroidery floss for it. It is 18-mesh penelope needlepoint canvas. Any information is appreciated.

    • Recently saw a stunning cross stitch and hardanger finish shared at a local needlework meeting. Design had hardanger work or design around the border area of the design. In the center was the complete 1 Corinthians 13 chapter in cross stitch. Piece framed and matted was about 36" or so by maybe 30" or so. Absolutely stunning. Have no idea who the designer is or the name of the chart. All I know is I want to stitch one for myself. I have searched online. Nothing. It is not a Stoney Creek design. Any and all input would be sincerely appreciated. Thank you for your help.

  • Wendi Yahn from Boise -- Aug 21, 2023
    • I would love to reward someone with advice for any cross stitch patterns that would work on a hearthside afghan with pink yarn - rainforest afghan is a sample, my Stiches are 570 down and 475 across (or divide by 4) but has to be a pattern that can break like a window pane look and still be a total picture if that makes sense! THANKS!

    • Be aware that if you have a Riolis cross stitch kit and run out of thread you have two choices. #1. They will be shipped from their Lithuanian headquarters with a waiting period of 6 weeks because they're overseas. Option #2 is to purchase the thread from their sister company in the US at 55cents per skein. I can't remember the yardage. Anyone else have this problem?
