About.com Cross Stitch Forum

The Cross Stitch Forum offers Stitcher's the opportunity to participate in conversations with other stitchers from around the world. Many friendships have developed over the years, with some stitchers even arranging to meet their forum friends while on vacation. New stitchers can get advice from experienced Cross Stitch enthusiasts. Intermediate stitchers can get tips and help from Advanced Stitchers. Attachments allow you to show off your stitching progress. If you are searching for an out-of-print pattern, or a specific type of pattern, chances are that someone will know just where to find what you are seeking.

Cross Stitch clubs, craft associations, and needlework guilds provide many resources for members. Classes help with improving skills. Meetings mean new contacts in the stitching world. Conferences offer opportunities for travel and fun.
