Format Changes to some Prairie Schooler Charts
When Prairie Schooler retired Hoffman Distributing, the largest distributor of cross stitch designs to retail stores, purchased all of the remaining Prairie Schooler inventory.
In addition Hoffman purchased the rights to reprint previously out-of-print, older Prairie Schooler Charts. This has made many nearly impossible to find Prairie Schooler designs available again.
However Hoffman decided to change the format of the reprints from the sturdy leaflet form we are all used to, to chart packs with each page printed individually and shipped in a clear envelope.
This has caused a lot of confusion to stitchers who are familiar with the original leaflet form.

You can tell what format you will be getting by reading the condition statement of each item before purchasing. When you open an item to view the details the condition is printed in RED. If the chart is a reprint from Hoffman Distributing it will have the following note:
