So i got this great kit from the Titanic exhibit in the museum near us ( Okay 3 hours away) and happily stitching along until I realized there wasn't enough material to finish the pattern let alone to frame it. Anyone one else ever have this problem before? How did you fix or not fix it? I called the museum and they said " So sorry all sold out" and emailed the company and no response. I have restarted the piece on 22 count as it has many 3/4 and 1/4 stitches in the border. The company nicely put in the dmc codes in the pattern for the colors so I can hit my stash for more to complete. ALready had it half done the first time. Ah well, not trying to vent but yikes that is alot of work to start over, I know i should have measured it first before starting but assumed it was all inclusive kit and I have a terrilbe time with startitis with new patterns. It was really calling to me :) Okay so in genreal just wondering whatothers have done in this situation or close.

    I would ask for a total refund from the museum. You would not have enough floss to start over, but fortunately you do have the DMC #s. This is one more reason not to buy kits!

      I agree with the previous message - never buy in kit form. It is more expensive and usually the cottons they use are sub standard. Good luck with your second attempt, you deserve it after all the work you had put in with the first one. Go to top

        Thank You for the replies. I wasn't able to buy just the pattern on this one but will be much more careful in the future. I am feeling a whole lot bettter about this now than I was a few weeks ago.
