I have a large project I want to make (the design is 24" x 36") but I'm not having any luck finding a frame large enough to stitch it on. Does anyone know of a good online store where I can buy one? Huh

Sam's Club.
I bought 12 pillowcases for $14
They have great napkins 12 for $10
Table clothes, aprons, towels you name it they pretty much have it.

Hey, y'all may already know about this, but there's an on line store that sells linen: www.fabrics-store.com   (that S is important!).  They list the weight of the fabric, and best of all they mail free samples, which are about 2" x 3", so if you're torn between willow and celadon, you can get the samples and decide for yourself!  They also have linen-cotton blends, etc.

I found this link on a cross stitch group and just had to share. The colors in these free patterns are amazing.

I'm new here so forgive if this isn't the right place to put this, Embarrassed if it needs to someone else, let me know and I will move it. I do alot of different crafts so I am always looking for pattern and instruction books, ie Leasiure Arts.  I don't have alot of craft stores here so I have to order.  Anyone know of a good place to look for books w/ outrageous shipping.  High shipping makes me  Angry

Look in the book section of your local thrift stores. I have found tons of craft books dating from today back through the 40's for cheap cheap.

I agree with AGFH-thift stores are the best. You can find a ton of vintage craft books there. What about the library?

Charity shops and car-boot sales are good.  The local library will have some, but (sadly) craft books are very likely to walk out the door and never come back, so they may not have a good variety.  Keep an eye on library sell-offs too - there're quite often older or damaged books being sold off cheaply.
