Hi Hazel
I have nudged the other thread up for you. I don't do much cross stitch but when I do I enjoy it. I find 11 count easier to do because of my eyesight but cant find many adult type themes.

Hi Ann

I have started stitching last few months again after 10yr brack. I love art deco things. I have been trying to find a cross stitch club near me but dont seem many about now. Most are to far for me to get to and most i the evenings so as dont drive cant get there.

Hi Hazel
I popped into our local craft group which was then held in the library, It was hopeless for me as I couldn't chat and stitch at the same time. I kepted on getting lost.

Have you looked at Fabric Warehouse.They are starting to do lots of classes or Southlands.
The latter may be more difficult to get to but you should be able to get a bus to Fabric Warehouse

Hi Hazel,
