Thanks for all your help.  My friend tried to use the linnen last night, but 
for her it didn't work out.  she couldn't seem to keep the stiches the same 
length.  Will try  the Hardanger cloth.  I need to find projects that will 
keep her interested and focased.  Could you sugest some suitable beginer 
projects, that could be entered as a novice work?  There is a need to keep 
costs down also.
Thank you
