Hello stitching friends,

Electronic Patterns are Here!

You can now order patterns and floss labels in electronic form! Here's how it works.

When you are considering adding a pattern to your cart, you'll see buttons that say Printed and Electonic. The one that is depressed and has red letters is the one that is active.

If you click "Add to Cart" when the screen looks like this, you'll add a regular print pattern as a printed booklet that will be sent in the mail to you.

If you click the "Electronic" button, the screen changes to look like this. Now any items you add to your cart will be in electronic (PDF) format.

As you can see, the electronic patterns cost less, and because they will be emailed to you, there is no postage charge. (There is still a small handling fee.)

We've added icons to the shopping cart and at checkout to make it easy to see what you are buying.

The electronic floss labels have guide lines on them for cutting them apart, since you probably won't find the type of labels we use locally. You can print them on plain paper and tape them to your floss, or on a whole page label sheet (such as Avery 8165 for inkjet or Avery 5265 for laser).

There are a few conditions you must be aware of when ordering electronic patterns or floss labels.

When you check out, the terms are listed and you'll be asked to agree to them. If you are uncomfortable with any of it, please order printed patterns. We are making the electronic patterns available to save you on postage and shipment time, in a common format that doesn't require special software. We simply ask that you act with integrity and respect our copyright.

Scarlet Quince in the news! (sort of)

We recently received a phone call from Robert Schueller, whose mother completed Nova Orbis Tabula - Frederick de Wit after working on it for several years. She gave it to him for Christmas, and he subsequently donated it to the history department at the University of Memphis, and it is now hanging in the foyer of the history building! A picture of her work appears on the cover of their February newsletter. There is an article about it starting on page 4. It shows a picture of the original map and they point out how faithfully the stitching reproduces it (alas, it doesn't mention Scarlet Quince -- that's where the "sort of" comes in). But they were clearly impressed and that's something we're very proud of.

New patterns! Clink any picture for a closer look.
