    • Hi all! I love the stitching process & watching the picture take shape, but I have to admit that I very rarely have had pieces framed. Are there others like me? What do you do with the finished pieces? Will people buy a piece to have framed? Give them away? Your thoughts, please?

As my eye sight is not what it once was I am reluctant to try and decipher the picture with out the color chart. I would greatly appreciate any help I can get. Thank You

    • Ultimate Cross Stitch Wildlife Magazine Vol 5 I am looking for a few of the original issues of the Ultimate Cross Stitch Magazine Vol 1 Samplers, vol 2 Sentiments, vol 3 Cards, vol 5 Wildlife (this issue especially) and vol 7 Christmas. The books were printed for the craft stores and are out of print. They are proving very hard to find. If anyone has these I am willing to purchase them or make some kind of exchange. If you know where I can find them any information will greatly be appreciated. Thanks Anita

    • We are expecting our first grandchild in June, 2019 and have always dreamed about doing a cross stitch with the lyrics to the Bob Dylan song, Forever Young. I have found a pattern with this but I am not wild about it. Does anyone know if there are people out there that design cross stitch patterns? I know this is a big ask :)

    • I m embroidering LOTS of kitchen towels, bibs, burp rags , pillow cases etc.....how do I protect the thread from unraveling in the wash if I chose not to knot my thread but rather run the ends thru other stitches. I prefer no knots but worry about unraveling. Thanks in advance!
  • Nadja from Denmark -- Jun 04, 2018
    • I m considering buying a pattern as a gift to my grandfather, but I m worried that the final product will not be of good quality, and will not exactly portray the bought image. Has anybody tried buying here, and what is your experience? Thanks a lot!

    • I am doing a backstitch alphabet using waste canvas for a baby birth announcement. How do I do the stitch that seems to be contained within one square of the waste canvas? It does not cross other threads. FYI: your Caption Maker is wonderful.
  • Jennifer from Fort Worth -- Sep 26, 2018
    • 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?

    • Can anyone share a picture of the "Baby Boy" version of the Creative Moments New Baby Banner, just so I can get an idea of the colors used? I own the "Baby Girl" Design #654 version, and have made several as gifts over the years, but with a new grandson on the way, I'm needing to see what the boy version looks like. Thanks!

  • Mart from Europe -- Aug 13, 2016
    • I have two questions: 1.) I bought pattern I liked and it has following note: "Use two skeins of floss for the cross stitches." What does that mean? I was able to googled pretty much everything else, but still don't understand this one. 2.) Why do I have to separate strands? People I know who stitch don't separate them. Is there much difference in result and what it is?

    • I asked before about a magnetic board to hold cross stitch patterns. I was trying to find one that was bigger than the 8 x 10 inch Loran board. I thought I found one, it was 12 x 18 but it wasn't what I wanted. I had to return it. I was thinking about a magnetic dry erase board. I've seen them 8-1/2 x 11 (the size of a piece of paper) but not sure how they would hold up on the folding stand. Do you think this would be too heavy for the stand? Any other thoughts on what else I could use?
