Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Sample of Flag Stitch

Flag Stitch

Flag Stitch (flg): It is a single standing stitch and not a pattern stitch. It can be used in many different types of patterns and I have designed 3 patterns that have this stitch in it. One is worked in the round and the other one is part of a dishcloth pattern that can also be used as a sampler square.

You might want to make a sampler square in the following way to practice this stitch. It creates a very holey fabric so you might want to use thread for this swatch. Then when you are done, you will have a coaster you can use.
