My mother has cross stitched for years, but I am relatively new to it. I wish I had asked these questions of her... I have an old pattern that was my moms, the problem I have is that the floss it lists in the color charts are not longer available. can I still get these colors or do I switch them out with something else?

    Michelle -- I just answered another poster with a similar question.

    I hate following directions. There is no law that says you have to use the "suggested" floss. Find a similar color or choose something very different. Substitute purple for orange. Use green fabric instead of white.

    The important thing is to have fun stitching and enjoy the final result. Go to top

      Thank yo so much... I have since figured out that I was reading the pattern incorrectly, there are anchor and DMIC numbers listed, but the back stitching is listed in Anchor, now what I know that I can use the conversion chart I found. Again, thank you for your help, it is much appreciated. Go to top
