Group Info

In the old days there was nothing and often solo Cross Stitchers wandered for months wondering if they were the only ones of deviantART that stitched. Then one day the founders met each other and from there it seemed Stitchers were popping up all over the place and they thought, wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a community? So, from that thought, Stitching Pirates was born and we look forward to providing you with the best community possible. Don't be afraid to ask questions, provide feedback! Without the people a community just wouldn't be what it is.

Why Stitching Pirates?

The name Stitching Pirates grew from the key pirate concepts that X always marks the spot and maps lead to something wonderful. The same applies to Cross Stitch and plus pirates are just awesome. Yargh!

Hi it’s me again I just have a little question I have a few cross stitch patterns that I randomly found online usually on Pinterest or google images when I try to find the original maker it usually leads to a dead end especially the hogwarts house crest I can’t even find that one online anymore. Can I share the patterns here or would that not be ok I don’t want to make anyone angry or think I’m trying to take credit for their work :worry:

Please don't share patterns that you didn't make yourself. :)

Hi I just had a little question when I’m stitching I noticed that I can see the Aida fabric through my stitches especially when I’m using a darker colored floss do you know how I can prevent that?

Use a tighter Aida, or more threads for your stitching. :) 18 count with 2 strands of thread is usually alright as long as you don't pull tight. On something huge like 10 count you might have to use 3 or 4 strands for that full overage. For me personally, on 14 count perforated paper I prefer to use 3 strands. It'll just take some experimentation for the effect you're after. :D

Oohhh this makes sense I was using 14 count with 2 strands and Iíll be honest I usually make my stitches tight thank you so much for telling me :dance: Right now Iím experimenting with a 10 mesh plastic canvas and I had to use 6 strands to make it look full (threading the needle has been a bit trial and error lol)
