I have a picture that measures 12.25” and I would like to stitch it on 28 count evenweave so that it measures 16”. I would appreciate help in understanding what calculations I need to make. Thanks!

    Have you thought of stamped projects? The stitching is a lot bigger than the other cross stitch. Go to top

    I am not sure if this was the original post..... but a while back someone posted a similar request. I suggested using plastic canvas. The needles are larger, stronger and the holes in the plastic are easier to stitch. I never received the courtesy of a response then. Go to top

    Our Activities dept works closely with several ladies like this. We use plastic canvas and very easy to do patterns. Once a week we hold a "needle work" session where even those not capable of stitching can enjoy being part of a group and talking about projects they have done. We hold a County Fair each Sept and a craft fair in December where the residents can sell their projects. We encourage staff and family to bring in items that they or the resident has made. The list is endless. Go to top

    Jac,
    I'm not understanding what you are trying to do. Are you trying to determine how big you need to make the pattern in terms of stitches to get a final stitched piece that is 16"?
    Thanks,
