    • 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. 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

    • Hi! I'm hoping someone can help me, and this is the correct place to post. I'm looking to possibly hire someone to do a couple of embroidery kits from the 1980s. I need both of these kits duplicated 4 times (so long as I can find enough of the kits to do that) and I'm hoping to have them done by Christmas. I have reached out to local embroidery shops but I guess people dont do hand embroidery anymore. If anyone has any interest in giving me a quote on possibly doing these kits, I would appreciate it. The kits are an angel tree topper from Columbia minerva #7275 and the other is a nativity set from Daydreams by dick Martin #822. Thanks in advance!

    • Help finding someone that can cross stitch Christmas stockings and birth records for my children like my grandma made for me. For birth records I want either mine copied and recreated with my children s info or an antique baby carriage along with their info (finished size about 10x12?) And for the stockings I would need to pick out a pattern from you. Something not too busy that can be personalized and with general Christmas things like Santa or a tree. No cartoon characters please. Ashley.c.bolden@gmail.com

  • 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

  • Abbie from Iowa -- Dec 03, 2019
    • 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.
