I've not had this happen to me yet, but it sounds like a lot of work already in it and to take it out would be even more work. Perhaps you could get another piece of fabric and patch them together?

What do you guys do when you're about 1500 stitches into a pattern that's 10x that, but you just realized the fabrics too small? :( :(

@lcockitt - from what I can tell the stitcher definitely got the pattern from here, but I'm not sure if they are a member

a good trick for metallic thread it to run it through a damp sponge before stitching, makes it easier to work with

It's in my current project and I'm wondering how when I'm using two ply, one strand always ends up an inch and a half shorter than the other...even when they're cut the same size and there are no twists or knots and all my stitches are even. I feel like I'm missing
Wed Sep 17, 2014 10:25 pm
I feel you on that. I got the brilliant idea of wanting to use it in my current project, and now I'm sorely regretting that decision. lol
Wed Sep 17, 2014 12:06 pm
LOL Not sure about it making me want to punch myself in the face, but it does make me angry a LOT!!! I HATE HATE HATE how it likes to untwist the metallic strands!

Censored a word that wasn't bad...
Wed Sep 17, 2014 11:40 am
Does metallic thread make anyone else want to punch themselves in the face? I really *' hate this stuff!

Tue Sep 16, 2014 1:32 pm

Any one else been trying out the Smash Bros 3DS demo?
Sat Sep 13, 2014 12:33 am
Same here Link. Except I love my Colts more than Manning. :) Colts can do what they did last year and beat the Broncos and the Broncos still have a stellar year. :D
Sat Sep 06, 2014 9:31 am
Colts/Broncos games are difficult for me. I'm a Colts fan, but also love Manning...
Thu Sep 04, 2014 5:40 pm
