Silk 'n' Colors by Joan Erickson
Anyone have some extra Thread Gatherer's Silk 'n Colors floss in colors 096 (Golden moss) and 121 (Espresso creme) that they'd like to sell me? This floss is really expensive (I've seen prices from $7-$14!!!) and I don't think it's worth nearly $20 for the 2 skeins for an 8" square...

question for those who've done Tribute to Old Masters by [email protected]
Hi everybody-- I've just purchased the chart for Tribute to the Old Masters by Nouveau Encore Designs. The finished size on 32-ct fabric is 27 x 27, which means that the fabric size should be about 33 x 33. Clearly, that won't fit on my Artisan Designs needlework frame--or any other frame I've...

Question about scroll frames by Danny Breidenbach
Hi -- I generally use Q-Snaps to hold my work, and I'd had no major problems. I have a question about scrolls, though. Do the scrolls hold one's work taut enough all the way around to allow for easy stitching? That's one really nice thing about Q-Snaps: if the piece gets a little loose, one simply...

Small Happy Dance by Karen C
Went to the Quilt/Craft/Sew festival last weekend with a friend. Neither of us quilts or sews, but we did find a few things to buy. My friend reinterprets traditional quilt designs in crochet, and found lots of inspiration. The only stitchy stuff was from Bobbie G Designs. I bought and just...

click button on ott light by Martha[_7_]
I have a desk lamp from Ott light. Model #pl9768. The click button to turn it on kept sticking and last night it completely stopped. I took apart the base and looked inside. It looks like an easy fix, but I can't figure out how to get the click button working again. It just looks like the pieces...

Eyes -- an update by Danny Breidenbach
I got my fancy new "old man" glasses two days ago. Progressive lenses. Fancier than no-line bifocals, but they follow the same idea. So far so good on general usage about town, although I just generally feel more aware of my glasses than usual. The best I can describe it is as having sort of a...

Paternayan yarn numbers by elderberry22
Hi, I am thinking about making the pattern "Tinkle, a Cat" from the book by Brande Ormond, _American Primitives in Needlepoint_. But when I look at the Paternayan yarn numbers, they are so different! This calls for quite a lot of Dark Red #201, but when I look at color charts, 201 is quite a...

Eyes by Danny Breidenbach
At the ripe young age of 46, my eyesight is getting problematic. Hard to see the small stuff. If I take off my glasses, I can hold my work real close and see the holes BETTER than with my glasses; however, holding anything that close makes my eyes start to cross. My astigmatism just makes it...
