Stitcher's question of the week

This week's question is  What are your favourite cross stitching websites and why?

Most of the sites that I visit are the variety of bulletin board dedicated to stitching.  I started off on the Teresa Wentzler board and found the rest from there.  I like visiting lots of boards so I can see that everyone else is stitching (and buying).  Through the board I have met some many lovely people and discovered cross stitch designers that I would never have f ound on my own as the selection near me is very limited.

My favourite UK on line stash enhancement sites are http://sewandso.co.uk and http://jaynesattic.co.uk/index.html . Both have a great variety of charts, threads and fabrics and both have great customer service.  They are both really quick at sending orders too when you just can't wait for something.

Outside the UK I like http://www.stitchingbitsandbobs.com/  and http://downsunshinelane.com/.  Buying stash from the US is so much cheaper, especially at the moment and the owners of both these sites are helpful and friendly.

Oh and of course http://www.ebay.co.uk .  Not strictly a cross stitch site but there is lots of stash to be bought there and when I spend too much on stash, I can sell old stuff off to fund more.

I like to read the blogs of other stitchers, even my stitching is actually needlepoint.
