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...

Does anyone know where to get a Judaic cross stick tablecloth. I’ve been looking for over a year now. Crafty needle hasn’t been open in a year. Thanks.

Eterna Silk Floss by [email protected]
Hi, I used to read this group on a daily basis, but haven't visited in many, many years. I lost my job (twice!!), found a new job, then retired a few years ago. Unfortunately, due to shoulder, back, and neck problems I haven't stitched much since then. So, I'm purging my stash. Does anyone...

old tablecloth by [email protected]
An elderly woman in our building put a tablecloth on display one evening last week prior to it being picked up by the museum. She thought it was needlepoint but actually it was 9 large squares of cross stitch flower bouquets, crocheted together to make the cloth. The work was lovely, the back...

A Finish by Rich[_3_]
I'm back! Finally took the time to email my news server and get posting turned on for my account. I finished "Bluebird Garden" by Artful Offerings. The picture of the model did not match the graph. Two of the blues were switched by the model stitcher I guess. My email got no reply so I ended up...

Indigo Rose and Catherine Strickler by [email protected]
Does anyone know if Catherine Strickler of Indigo Rose is still designing or in business? I've tried to contact her through an old e-mail address and phone number but the e-mail came back 'undeliverable' and the phone number is out of service. I did one of her scissor fobs some years ago, and...

Conversion chart for old (pre-1982) to new (post 1982) Paternayan color numbers by butchy0
In 1982 Paternayan changed their Persian yarn color numbering system. In 2006 on this site there was a discussion thread about the availability of a conversion chart of the old to new color numbers. Elderberry22 kindly started making a list of the old to new numbers, but the posting stopped...

Greetings from Ontario, Canada. Long ago (and not so far away) I came across the fantastic Skyhook string stand. I still use one from time to time. I don't have time to scroll through all of the messages looking for an active link to the instructions, and was wondering if anyone knows where one...

I've been out of the needlework teaching and writing loop for a couple of years and out of the RCTN loop for several more than that. This does not mean I haven't been stitching, generating more UFOs, or participating in SEX, however! (Just last night, a friend upped my quotient of UFOs and SEX...
