Counted Cross Stitch, Needlework and Stitchery page by Kathleen Dyer

This site contains lots of useful information, including a cross stitch tutorial, a fabric calculator, charts of colour equivalents for various threads, and much more. The original link no longer works, so there are links to FAQ documents that don't seem to be available anymore, but most of the information is still here.

Antique Pattern Library

This site collects and posts scans or pdfs of out of copyright pattern books. There is a wonderful collection of old DMC publications.
