  • Pomeroy Cross question

    In the spring 2001 issue an article was published. "A Page From the History of Scrolling." I do not have the magazine, but borrowed the magazine and made the cross of which I posted a picture here. Can anyone give my any information on the origin of this cross ? I think the article said the origin was from the 1800's, but I am hoping for more information. (The 'S" in the cross resembles the dollar sign which brings comments usually). I found the article in the article index. By the way, I subscribed to the magazine later because it gave me so much information that I needed as a neophyte to scrolling. Thanks for any help.

        I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

        I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

        But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

        +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

        It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
