    Cross stitches of characters from World of Warcraft

    Yes, I'm a geek as well as a stitcher :-)

    Seriously, does anyone know of anywhere that does cross stitches of WoW?

    Thanks

    Those would be copyrighted images so you most likely would have to pay for them.

    BTW - from the point of view of staff, I did a close double-take when I saw "World of Warcraft". We've had our share of spammers from them. It's best to keep a low profile in this area!
    There is no such thing as a stupid question!

    I was taken aback, too. Being involved with the administration of another message board, seeing that name made me think spammers had invaded the EMS board, too.

    Even the abbreviation gets me ticked off.

    i have not found any yet myself. My oldest son has already asked me to find one to do for him. We spent the better part of yesterday watching Blizz-Con on tv. He is a huge fan and has been working hard in school to someday design games himself. I will keep on looking!

    Why not try a site like http://yardsofyarn.co.uk/index.php?page=xstitch You can upload pics and get a pattern from them. An idea?!?

    I've been looking for them also to no avail. I haven't been able to find any websites or anything that sell them. No one that designs them. I thought about saving an image and using PC Stitch to make a pattern, but that would be illegal, I believe (Correct me if I'm wrong) since I don't own the picture I'd use to create it. I wouldn't sell it, obviously, it would be for my own use, but would it be copyright infringement?? I think so, but I'm fuzzy on the technical aspects of it.

    As for ones for sale, no luck from me either. Maybe we could write to Blizzard and get their ok to make a chart out of it.

    Basically it is in the grey area, but as long as you make it only for your personal use, don't sell or share the design anywhere and don't sell the finished piece you should be safe.

    To be 100% safe and sound I recommend asking copyright owner's permission in any case.

    As somone who was a hard core gamer for many years I'm not sure why anyone who plays WoW needs to keep a low profile... most are really nice people.

    If I am not stitching or reading these forums then you can find me still gaming. Not as much as I used to as my computer is not quite that good anymore. I leave the games to the men in my family mostly. We all hang out in the same room with the 3 of them gaming together and I get the whole couch to myself to stitch and watch whatever I want on Tv. That's the good life!

    !! The two things I love most (besides my kids) are stitching and Gaming!! In fact I have a hard time deciding how to spend my free time..with a needle or controller lol. Nice to see I'm not the only one who has the same love for games!

    I looked for a while (awhile back) for patterns of the characters from Final fantasy 10. I think I found 1 or 2 but finally gave up when I couldn't find what I wanted.

    Yes, we are nice people. It's the just the people who use WoW to spam the websites I think they are worried about. Well I hope so, or else I'll be getting my coat :-)

    You're correct. It's not the players that bother us, it's the spammers. The only GOOD thing to say about them is they aren't porno spammers! They're still a pain and they give the legitimate players of the game a very bad name!

    You could always get in touch with them and ask if they have ever considered converting some characters into cross stitch. Explain there are quite a few stitching gamers! Anything is possible - even my beloved Discworld has some patterns now and I love them!

    I actually hate the game WOW. I don't use the term "hate" lightly either. It has taken my husband away from his family and chores for way too long. He is even planning on taking a day off to meet his friends at the release of the new game. I call them the LGS (loser geek squad). I really have to fight to get him to turn it off.

    Sorry to hear that. It happened quite a bit to people I knew in Everquest when I was playing that game as well. It's hard not to blame the game itself in situations like that, rather than the game just being the vice for the addiction.

    Dr. Phil, just ran a whole hour on gamers who become addicted to video games....
    He has information on things to do and try on his site if anyone needs help or information with regards to the problems that can effect some people....

    I know its been quite some time since the original post was made, but have you checked Spritestitch.com for some ideas? Its a geeky craft site. I love seeing some of the projects many of the contributors come up with.

    I've been thinking more and more about this topic recently since I've been playing more and more with my fiance and he wants something similar to our 2 characters to hang in our soon-to-be apartment.

    I gave up today and contacted Blizzard via their email form thing requesting permission to use a screen shot of my screen for my own personal use in turning in to a chart. I might suggest you do the same.

    Depending on their resposne for this, I am thinking of going back and asking for permission to do their logos also. Maybe they'll like the idea enough that they'll contact a company and make them available for sale!
