Kelley,

Welcome!  Smile

How exciting that you're designing a birth announcement!

I found both an upper and lowercase cursive backstitch alphabet, available for free from the wonderful Connie Barwick of about.com.  Smile

Here's the uppercase chart:

And here's the lowercase chart:

Please do post pics of your finished announcement, as well as pics of your other work, so we can all drool!  Smile  And best of luck with the announcement...I've always had the most fun with designing.  Making other people's patterns is very enjoyable, but designing made it exciting, to see what was in my imagination turn into cross stitch!

Again, welcome!  Smile

Terry,

Tabloid is not an option in my dropdown menu.  But I went online to a site that lists paper sizes, and they show "Tabloid" as being 11" h by 17" w, since other users have a tabloid option, can you give it to me as well?

Not sure I understand, what is the greatest number of stitches wide that the system currently supports in a printout?  And what is it's "name"?

It's great that you will be rotating many sizes in the future.

Thanks,
Janice

Hi - I would love to be able to do this - I'm looking to crochet a Union Jack single bed blanket so would be looking at a width of 240 stitches and a length of 360. Even patterns I've found to buy are all only 150 x 200.


Melanie,

No matter the reason, it's always sad to lose the small independents.
Maintaining a store front is very expensive, so you're right that it's hardly surprising. Cry

Hello Cindy, and welcome to the group.

I can't seem to find the pictures of your work. Embarassed
