    Hello Cheryl, I bought Simply Samplers for my Nook. However I cannot find a way to print the patterns. My other embroidery nook book has links to print out everything. I have been a needle worker since the age of seven and am 50 this year. Very nice book otherwise. Thanks Cynthia Theinert

    I have a question. I’m a long-time cross-stitcher. But I’m interested in doing the band sampler on the cover of Simply Samplers. However, I can’t find out what stitch is used in Row 14. I thought about doing a couched lattice stitch, but I would like to know what stitch is pictured in the diagram.
    This may not be the place to ask, but I couldn’t find anywhere else.
