    Am looking for 1968-69 Erica Wilson black and gold kits

    Long story. I got married in 1968 and started crafting with Erica Wilson's 9 black and gold embriodery kits that I bought out of McCalls Needlework magazine. I finished all 9 and took them to the framer somewhere in Sacramento, CA. My marriage broke up and somehow I never went back to pick them up. Now living in Indiana. I bought an issue of that magazine on Ebay and have the pictures of the finished products, but the magazine only had instructions on hanging them. I can blow up the pictures and make hot iron transfers.

    It would sure help if someone had one of these kits or instructions. I am fuzzy on the stitches and materials. I bought some 28 count antique white linen, but the blow up on the frog one looks like something different. It's been a few years.

    McCalls and Erica Wilson's office says nothing is available. Can anyone help me?

    Found this book that mentions black and gold, but probably not the patterns you are looking for:

    There are quite a few Erica Wilson kits on eBay. Since you have the magazine, I would put in a search for each kit name on eBay. EBay will email you if one of your search items is listed for sale.

    I've looked for quite some time on eBay and have bought all her books. These 9 little pictures are not in anything except this 1968-69 Winter issue of McCalls. I should try to post a picture of one of them. All very cute. I just thought someone had them also and maybe the directions too.
