Just a wee suggestion for you, Meredith, just in case you were twiddling your thumbs with too much extra time on your hands!

After the roaring succes of how to do a pinhead stitch in the last newsletter, I thought of taking the tips page just one step further and having actual guidelines/instructions/lessons on how to do various cross stitching techniques... This came to mind during a recent forum discussion on just how to use the parking technique. This particular point seems a perennial question, and I just thought that a little SQ expertise mightn't go astray. And then there are so many areas that could be made into cross stitch classes: railroading, petitpoint, one over one with blends, waste knots... etc. It might be worked into the newsletter or put along with the tips section... Just an idea...

Happy stitching Stitching

Laughing In my copious free time! Seriously, it's a good suggestion and a good list. I got a lot of positive feedback on the last newsletter. There is more detail about the pinhead stitch in the tips, and that is probably what I will continue to do - cover things as fully as space allows in the newsletter, and put all the detail in the tips. Some of the things you mention are covered in the tips now, but they are not all illustrated -- also on my to-do list!

The upcoming newsletter is going to deal with how well the floss covers the fabric at different thread counts and how many strands to use, with pictures. We get questions about that all the time. Again, there will only be room for a few pictures in the newsletter, and there will be a lot more in the tips, including things that DON'T work terribly well (partly because I'm not going to waste that stitching, and partly because I think it's less helpful to say "that won't look right" than to show exactly how not right it won't look. Whoa! Did that make sense?

Yep, I agree - I was gonna mention it yesterday, but apparently, I distracted myself... I hate when that happens.
