The Latest Chit Chat

Hi everyone, I was just wondering if you all are as disappointed as I am to see that the calculator that used to be on the left side ,is now gone. I am really upset at this as it was such a big help to me and helped me order designs and kits ,knowing I could change the size of the fabric if I needed to . I have a lot of kits and designs from ECS and wanted to order a few more but am really not happy they have changed so drastically. Does anyone feel like I do? thanks ,fellow stitchers. Norma King
I just got a huge knot in one of my parked threads. O_O So after unknotting the tangled mess, I decided I probably needed a needle minder, so I made one of my own. I didn't make the design on the front, I used a hot glue gun to adhere a magnet onto the back of it.
Kristi, when I received the pattern and instructions, I discovered that they do their supplies a little differently--they give an "amount of usage", instead of just saying "you're going to need to order 2 skeins", they list amount needed, 1.4 skeins... Your computer is picking up the "1", or other whole number, but not the partial skeins. I have added the additional skeins I need to order, but wanted to let you know about the problem...got a feeling you might be taking some heat eventually over this, you know better than most how people are. :)
Finished this for a friend.
Did this for my husband's nephew.
This is in booklet form, which I do not like. Before I order more, I will need to find out in what form it is sent. Also, the symbols are on there as to what colors to use but now what stitch to use. Confusing!
Hello everyone :) By now, you know that we have redesigned and reformatted our website...yay!! It's been a long process in the works and this update stemmed from having to keep up with all of the ever changing ways of technology. In order for our platform (website) to work on mobile devices, tablets, etc....we had to reformat everything and in doing that, we made some much needed updates to things on here. Now, please keep in mind that we are still working on things. We never know what is going to actually work on the new website until we "roll it live" so we are slowly finding things that we need to fix, replace, add, etc...but we would love your input on the new website as a whole. What do you like, what do you not like, what would like to see added or taken away or even done differently?! Now that the new format is out and done, we can now work on the other things that make our website great for you all :) So, post away and let us know your thoughts, opinions and ideas. I am taking all of your posts to the powers that be and we are going to have a meeting about everything. So please know that all of your posts will be chatted about and taken into consideration. While we won't be able to please everyone and do everything that gets mentioned, we are going to do best to make it happen for ya :) Thank you all so much in advance for participating and for being patient with us as we are tackling this new format. ~Kristi @ ECS
It has to go back. They forgot to put it under glass.
Another attempt! Taking pictures in all different directions to see if I can get one to post right side up!if I take it upside down it stays upside down.taking it right side up it turns upside down, taking it on its side switches direction! Is it gremlins? At least posting sideways you don't have to stand on your head to see it😁 Any one else have this problem?
Just wanted to let my cross stitch friends know what a wonderful time my husband and I had in VA celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! Monticello was breathtaking and Williamsburg was rich with history! I loved seeing a young James Madison and Thomas Jefferson talk about religious freedom. They have so meticulously researched their part that they could answer any question thrown at them the same way their counterparts would have back in the day! They never came out of character! Horse and buggy ride around town was relaxing too! Jacquie
Can someone tell me where I can order a pattern for a black and white chihuahua dog? My daughter has four and I would like to stitch one for her. Thanks!
What's the highest number of projects you guys have worked on at one time? Currently, I'm working on three, one is in backstitch stage, one is small, and one is large.
Help where have you put the wish list? I had several things in it and want to show my husband the list of wedding samplers I had selected to chose from and I can"t find the wish list tab. HELP!!
I just noticed that they misspelled Australia in this pattern :(. I see how I could fix it but not sure I can take it out without messing all the stuff around it. I jumped around a bit in that section when it did it a month ago.
Hello! I found the perfect baby record cross stitch pattern on line, but now I can't find the actual pattern for the project. Does anyone have this pattern or know where I can get it?
