Have You Checked Out Our Discount Sale Catalog Site yet??

Shop our EBAY store to find the old classics

    Click on the sheep image above to see!

    Some charts/kits are from shop overstock .. some are slightly used and were given to us by other stitchers who no longer wanted them.   This part of our shop catalog has it's very OWN search function .. that means if you are searching for SNT Classics sale items from our regular catalog, they will NOT show up.  You MUST be ON the SNT Classics catalog page and use THAT Search Box for your searches.  (none of our regular items will show up when you are searching from this web site page!

          ~ Ordering DISCLAIMER  Below ~
   You can email us or call us to let us know which ones you want to purchase OR you can add them in to your shopping cart order form.  The only problem with ordering SNT Classics by email or phone is this:

It's always possible that while you are emailing or calling to place your order, someone else may have already purchased them by ordering from our catalog site.  QUANTITES ARE VERY LIMITED .. which means, first come, first served.  We will do everything in our limited power to ensure that you get your items, but cannot guarantee if not purchased directly through our SNT Classics web catalog.

    IF you do email your requests to us, just make sure you give us the full title AND designer name AND tell us that these are from the SNT Classics Store .... or else we won't have a clue what you're talking, er, typing, about!

This next section will give you a color picture of the DMC floss colors arranged in color families (not by color number).   The picture comes from a DMC thread color book. The picture does not include the 27 new colors added early 2002. Although not exact, the colors are fairly accurate. Remember that the colors you will see depend greatly on the quality and calibration of your computer screen

DMC FLOSS COLOR CHART    (use this link for printing)

This color chart is handy if you want to change colors in a chart.   For example, say you want to change part of a design from red to blue. The red in the design  has shadowing (red with 2 shades of darker red to create the shadow or texture).  An easy way to convert to blues would be to pick all the shades of blue from the same family.   To find a particular color number in the color chart you will also need the color table.  The table gives the column in which you will find the color number.

This next section will give you a color picture of the ANCHOR floss colors arranged in color families (not by color number)   Although not exact, the colors are fairly accurate. Remember that the colors you will see depend greatly on the quality and calibration of your computer screen

Making photocopies. Legally you can not ever make a copy without the permission of the copyright owner.

It doesn't matter what form the copy takes--photocopy, electronic copy, photographic, etc.

It also doesn't matter if you sell the copies or give the copies away for free--you can not make copies. The copyright owner has the exclusive right to make copies.

This even applies to out of print patterns or patterns in magazines. The copyright owner still has the exclusive rights to the design--even if they choose not to offer the design for sale at this time.

 

  • You can sell, give away or trade the original pattern you purchased.
  • It IS against the law to scan and upload needlework patterns to the internet.
  • You cannot make a copy of a friend's chart so that you can stitch the design yourself.

copyright abuse

Educating the public (aka your friends and fellow members of e-groups) is paramount to putting an end to the illegal practice of "sharing" charts on the internet. Please help the industry by helping designers protect what is legally theirs. Notify the copyright holder when you see charts illegally uploaded to the internet or being "shared" in web based groups. "Sharing" a purchase with others has both a short and long term negative effect on the industry. Please be a part of the solution. Be an advocate for your needle art!

Please be respectful of designer copyright.

Just because you "found it on the internet" does not mean it was posted legally.

Practice responsible "pinning."
