    Gail that chart doesn't look right to me ? I would check it out with Marcus as I think he has put the cm size instead of inches . Wendy is right, 25 x 15.9 inches so just add 6 inches each side for 3 inch margins ( 31x 21.9 inches ) and you will have enough fabric unless you want bigger margins


    I hope you get the fabric soon, that chart is a beauty

    I'm with Abi, Gail. This doesn't look one bit right. Just bring up this chart in the store and the fabric guide on the page is the correct one, I think. You should also check with Marcus - at least let him know so that he can correct the chart. You would have ended up with way more than double the fabric you needed!

    I don't know, perhaps you are disappointed that it will be so 'small' now!!

    These numbers are not right, I'm stitching 400 stitches wide on 18ct aida and with the margin is 29" inches.

    I just called our store Gail, and they have enough fabric in stock. I don't know if it's Antique White or not, but the colour doesn't really matter because it will be totally stitched. I gave her the stitch count with a 3-inch margin (rather than telling her size of fabric) and the cost is $34.10 plus tax, which is 15% here in N.B., and postage cost - probably Canada Post. If you want it quickly I'm sure they would send it Priority Post for you.

    Thanks so much everyone! I was beginning to think I couldn't read or something. No, I'm not disappointed that it will be smaller than I thought - in fact I might just have a piece in my stash that will work. And, maybe I can do it in 14 ct after all, which will be much easier on my old eyes! Yes, I will let Marcus know about the discrepancy. That's great to know about your local shop Wendy - thanks so much for taking the time to research that. Are you stormed in today?

    I'm glad to hear that you may already have a piece of fabric that will work Gail. You can start it that much sooner! Any time you need something, just let me know - we have a great shop here and the girls are all sweethearts.

    I didn't leave the house all day. The roads weren't safe to walk or drive on until noon. Thankfully all the schools are still on Christmas break, although school would have been cancelled anyway, and even our bowling league was cancelled.

    Well, the prospect of starting this project has motivated me to do some re-arranging in my living space so I can have a more comfortable sititching area with a better light source. I moved into this place in May and it has been a challenge as it's much smaller than anything I've lived in before. So trying to fit in all my stamping and growing mixed media collections and now sititching space is a WIP for sure!
