    I am new to using the internet for research for projects of any variety. I am looking for a needlepoint free standing Calico Dog and Gingham Cat. My parents must have used this to describe my brother and me during our early years and it has fond memories for me. Can you help me?

      You can order the back issue that has that project from the web site. It was the March/April issue 2009 or you can call the office and place your order. We will send it out right away. The office number is 541-935-0238.

    I am working on the four seasons designed by Alice Okon. The first Autumn has worked out great. Now I am starting Winter and the size of the pattern is different. What size do I copy the words? I use the tissue paper pattern to get the lettering right. Also Spring has just come in, and it has the same problem. Please help!
    Thanks for the help.

      Hi Pat,

      I am very sorry for the confusion. I didn’t realize that the lettering
      was charted too small. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I
      will post this on our website. You will need to blow the text chart up
      112% to make it the correct size. Spring should also need to be blown
      up 112%. And I’m betting Summer will be the same.

      I just got the Summer piece and it is beautiful. I hope you enjoy the
      series and this little hiccup didn’t cause too much of a problem.

      Thank you for writing,

    Is there a place we can post our “Ta-Da” completed projects from the magazine?

      Hi Rosalie. Great idea. I’ll start posting TaDas on the blog. Thanks, Elizabeth

    Where can I find the TaDas and finished projects? I would love to view some of the finished work.

      Hi Denise. We haven’t had a “TaDa” column for awhile. I need to include one in the magazine soon. The last one was run in the May/June 2011 issue.
