Not a stitching website....

If you like coffee and want to help make a difference in someones life, then check out this website. 

 

http://www.cauzal.com

 

The vision behind Cauzal Coffee had been stirring in founder Don Jacobson for over 25 years. A near-fatal accident in 1980 marked a turning point in his life. Since that time he has sought to align his business ventures with his passion to make a positive difference in the lives of others. As president of Multnomah Publishers, Don helped hundreds of authors bring more than 100 million faith-based books to readers through-out the world. In 2006, after selling Multnomah, he founded Cauzal Coffee, with the vision of helping people live generously and responsibly.*

 

25% of each sale goes to an important Cauze*

A beginner’s guide for crocheting.
6 years ago

I have found an excellent guide for anyone who is just learning how to crochet. NexStitch is apparently “THE” place to go for crochet videos, tutorials and all manner of “how-to” type info. These articles will take you through,

So You Want to Learn How to Crochet? – Terminology

Get a Grip: How to Hold a Crochet Hook and Yarn – Holding the hook

Join the Chain Gang: Learn to Chain Stitch – First Chain

Will That Be a Single or a Double? Basic Crochet Stitches 101 – Basic stitches

Detour! Turning and Beginning New Rows in Crochet – Turning your project

The Bare Bones: Crochet Stitch Anatomy 101 – Loops, posts and spaces

Got Math? How to Read Crochet Patterns – Some Common problems people have with reading patterns

If you don’t have a grandmother or someone who can help you crochet this is the next best thing, you become better at something when you put the effort in to make it work. I know crochet has been a blessing on my life and continues to be. I hope you enjoyed these links. Talk to you soon.

while this website is not a stitching site it is of interest.

http://www.onebillionbulbs.com/

Imagine if people all over the world mobilized to replace one billion standard incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs.  What would that mean?  It would mean that those people would save money each month on their electricity bill.  It would mean they would save enough energy to light tens of millions of homes for a year.  It would mean the prevention of greenhouse gases equivalent to the annual emissions of millions of cars.

This is a stitching site, near the bottom of the page is a listing for software.  I believe you would buy it.  I have the PCStitch program and while I havent made anything with it yet I have played around with it.  There are even some links for UK.
