    After 25 years, I'm actually going to let go. Yes, those of you who know me are hysterically laughing. I can hear you! About 15 years ago, I opened a cross stitch shop to supplement my income because way back then, if you were student teaching before graduating, the college would not allow...

    Do any of you know approximately how many stitches you would get from a DMC skein of floss using Aida 14? I have several patterns that give numbers of stitches and number of skeins, but not what the number of stitches is to determine this. I couldn't find that info on the DMC site, and couldn't...

    Can anyone help me. I was searching online for free patterns for snowflake cross- stitch or embroidery patterns. I didnt find too many. Embroidery is even harder. I want both, I want to make a tree-skirt, with that on it. Hubby would sew the skirt, Ill decorate it with the snowflake theme. I...

    I've studied Sewcrafty's tutorial. I have the basic stitch down but I am confused from where you chain 3 and turn. Where exactly do you put your hook in next? In the fourth stitch, and then you dc one less? (like if you want 10 dc stitches, chain 13, count back four then put your hook in there...
