Cross Country Stitch Magazine Subscription

Hello! I used to subscribe to CROSS COUNTRY STITCH MAGAZINE on and off for a few years and when I went to their website to re-subscribe, it says it is not available. Does anyone know if they are no longer in business? The reason why I am asking is because I have been collecting their patterns in their February issues since 1994 for the plate designs. They used to sell the wooden resin for $19.99 in their catalog and now they no longer sell it. I thought maybe someone could help me out with where I may be able to find another company that sells a similar 8 inch wooden resin plate. I am also looking for other cross stitch magazine subscriptions as well. Thank you so very much for any help!

    I just came from Books a Million tonight and looked for the same mag because they always had it there and thought it strange that it was not on the shelf since they always seemed to have an ample supply, especially that 1st issue of the year which I believe is the plate design issue you are talking about. As for the wood plates you mention if I understand right, it's the mounting wooden plate for the design and you could try Sudberry House www.sudberry.com. Go to top

    The magazine stopped publishing last Nov./Dec. and switched unfinished subscriptions to the Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine. Go to top

        I have been a subscriber to Cross Country for years. I was a little suspect when the last issue had items from previous issues. I was so upset when I received an issue of "Just Cross Stitch" some of the patterns in the mag are OK, but not the same style that I've come to love. This happened quite a few years ago with the Stoney Creek xstitch magazine. I think the popularity of counted xstitching is fading, hopefully it will come back one day. Go to top
