I have a couple of other sites for PipneyJane's FAQ.

This is for Afghan Stitch or Tunisian Crochet. It's essentially a very simple stitch, and for that reason even a total klutz like myself can manage it very easily. But there are a lot of variations on the stitch, and you can also cross-stitch on it, which makes for very unusual designs. This site includes a tutorial on how to work the variations, which is why I thought it would be a help to others.

Here's the main site (and the front page, before you enter, includes some other links):

http://www.designsbyjami.on.ca/

and here's the tutorial:

And here's another site with both regular and Tunisian Crochet:

http://www.chezcrochet.com/index.html

This next one is a counted cross-stitch site that I'm fond of. I know that some people prefer other designers, and I'm hoping that some of them might be inspired to offer links to their own preferred sites.

Told in a Garden:

She also has some free designs, and a few recipes.

And I also found some links I had for inexpensive Christmas or whenever gifts that might come in handy. Most of them are fairly basic, but if someone is in panic mode, these might offer some ideas or suggestions:

Hope this is some help,

And polarg posted a link:
http://www.stitchguide.com
that was amazing! I think that should go on the FAQ also.

It has stiching instructions, including short-clip video. Great stuff.

P.S. Once again, to give credit where due, polarg found that one.

Thanks frydaze, but I can't take credit for that one. I heard about it here, though I can't remember who posted it. :)

Also, links to some of the threads about sewing machines; what some people like or dislike about certain brands, plus some of the locations where people have found good used or reconditioned machines, may help. I don't sew, so I don't follow those threads, but I know that we've had several.

Beads and jewelry. I'll have to start hunting for some links, and Alison probably has links to some of the beading magazines.

Sorry to keep writing new posts, but I'm trying to remember a lot of posts from the past.

And in one of them I found a post about a product called Orvus, which is used for washing cattle, lace, horses, fine rugs, llamas, needlework, and other disparate items. And when it was mentioned in a post, other people said they had used it with excellent results. So I thought I would mention it.
