Scout for the price of window http://www.neednewwindows.com online. For those who don't have enough time to drive around going from one company to another, this is a very convenient way to ask for the replacement costs.

Looking for alpaca yarn by Joan Erickson
Hi all, I know several of you are knitters/crocheters, so thought I'd try here. Several years ago I purchased some yarn. I finally found a pattern to use with it and have found I need more than what I got. I contacted the company and they replied they discontinued this line of yarn several...

How Can You Tell An Antique from A Copy? by Monica Ferris
If someone brought to you a dirty, stained piece of linen in a broken frame and you saw it was a sampler dated 1882, how could you tell it was actually a copy? I'm thinking it was stitched on uneven-count linen with silk floss. This is to be a minor plot point in the mystery novel I'm writing. ...

frogging. .. cut from the front or back? by Danny Breidenbach

Celestial Dragon -- how much floss by Danny Breidenbach
Hi. I'm getting my ducks in a row to undertake TW's Celestial Dragon. Does anyone have any idea how much floss I'll need -- I'll be working it on 28 count, just like the directions state.
