hello,

My name is Els, i'm from belgium and i'm new here.
First of all ... i'n very sorry if my English is not so good!!! i dont
use it
very often.

I work at home taking care of children who's parents are going to work
all day.
At this moment i've got 9 children and two of my own.
I love to knit! At this moment i'm knitting a bear for all of my
children. that
is why i need your help. I was knitting the paterns by
designer stitches
(popcorn bears) but they've stopped there production.
I've looked everywhere but
i dont find the pakkets anymore.

So far i've got patterns for

popcorn butterscoth (and all simular bears in other colors)
knitted soufflé
Fudge the cat

But i'm still looking for

Pickles the hedgehog,
biscuit,
barly the mouse

Is there anyone who can help me? Scan the patterns and mail them to me?
I can
swap
patterns if you like. I also have al lot of patterns for cross
stitching to swap
for knitting patterns.

thank you very much

Hello Els, my name is Bernadette, I live in Scotland. I have managed to
find out that Designer Stitches has gone out of business and their
knitting patterns are rare but there are people advertising on various
forums to swap the knitting patterns they have for those that they want.

One person has knitted all the popcorn range except for "Fudge the Cat"
which she wants. She is advertising on the forum at
http://forum.johnsoncrafts.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1061

If you contact her she may be able to help.

Good luck in your search.

Re: looking for knitting patterns

Hello Bernadette,

thanks for your suggestion. I've registered on the johnsoncrafts forum
but i
dont have acces yet. I can read everything but i can't reply or
make a new tread
on my own.

I hope to get it soon.

It's not very easy to find those patterns. I could not imagine it would
be so
difficult.

greetz,

Els

There is one other link I found today which seems to be an Italian
company and they are advertising various Popcorn kits. It is at
http://www.casacenina.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=526_655&product

Best wishes

Your link was too long and got split in my browser.  They also have an
English language page, and here is the link (passed through tinyurl):

Hi Barbara,

many thanks to you! It's better to understand in English than Italian!
The only
one i dont have of the ones they sell is Barley the mousse but
someone here in
Belgium promised me she would make a copy for me. So i'm
still looking for
Hedgehog and Biscuit and i didn't see them on the
italian side.

Hope to find them!

bye

Els

Thanks Bernadette

I really appreciate what you are doing for me.

The italian side only sells bears i've already got. And i'm still not
activated to the Jonhson crafts forum. It does'nt look good for me :-)

greetings,

Els

You're welcome. I think I may have found Biscuit the Dog as another
person is offering to exchange that pattern for some of those you have.
Check out http://snipurl.com/18x1w and I'll keep looking when I have a
few moments.

All the best
Bernadette

I'm just glad I could help and hope you manage to get the patterns you
want. Keep checking in on the group as I'm sure you will be able to
provide information to help someone else in the future.

I'm a great believer in "pass it on" especially the good things that
happen. :-)

All the best
Bernadette
