Remembrances for September 11, 2001

In memory of September 11, so many people have joined together to help each other in so many ways. It's as though the worst in humanity has brought out the best in humanity. And the best will prevail.

Below you will find links to many free charts as well as some that aren't entirely free (you should make a donation or be stitching a donation). For patriotic or other memorial charts that aren't mostly free, check with your LNS (local needlework shop) or Hoffman's Distributors.

Remember that even with free charts, the designer retains the copyright. If you plan to make a bunch of these and sell them, you should contact the designer to make sure that is okay.

If you have trouble downloading or seeing a chart, contact the web site owner of the design. But first, 1) try again or 2) reload the page. Some sites go down periodically. I am not responsible for any sites other than my own.

I recently wandered through the Caron Collection's September 11th tribute pages. They have many wonderful charts shown including some of the ones listed here.

Sue Heal maintains a wonderful freebie list. That link is to her USA theme.

Remember that I am a person rather than a shop. This page was intended as a service when designs were first needed.

Free Charts (in somewhat alphabetical order by first character of designer's or company name)

If you have a free chart that you want included in this list, send me email.

My Freebies That May be Appropriate

As I sat in the den talking to the LNS-owner on the phone, I realized that my free flower lattice chart had a red, white, and blue model. I'm seeing how it works over two on 28 count navy Jobelan. The model shown is rather large.

I also have a free remembrance chart requested a few years ago by Arlene. It is easy to stitch and states "We live as long as we are remembered."

And I have a chart for how I stitched 2001.9.11 onto my nametag. It's a plain text chart here.

Not Entirely Free Charts

The charts listed below are not entirely free. This is each designer's choice. And I support them wholeheartedly. Check the site or ask the designer what restrictions or contributions are expected.

Memorial Projects

These are projects I've heard about. I trust that they are all legitimate, but I have no mechanism for checking them. Inclusion here is not an endorsement.

With the World Trade Center Memorial Quilt, stitchers stitch a quilt square on evenweave (not linen or Aida). The results will be stitched into a huge quilt.

Quilts, Inc. is sponsoring a traveling America: From The Heart exhibit of memorial quilts is touring the United States and Europe.

And finally, someone asked about Memorial Bracelets similar to the Vietnam POW/MIA metal bracelets. I have no affliation with this group and this is not an endorsement.
