I'm still only at 2200 counting, but I don't think I will get done by the deadline so my guess is 46,561 stitches.

Having considered the matter for a considerable time, I have come to a conclusion regarding the number of stitches. I believe the riddle revolves around the definition of the word stitch. With that in mind I have unequivocally established there are 30 stitches.

Good morning! I've been flying in San Diego since 05'. My first rev was a supersonic, not reccommened for a first rev. A friend loaned me a 1.5 ,then things made since. Like everyone ,I gave up two lines after flying a rev. I now have 2 supersonics,3 B's ,lime,gold and a purple vented . 1 RW and B 1.5 that I vented "LAM" style and 1 blast. Flying kites is kind of like "YOU KNOW WHAT",think about "it" all the time!
I try to fly 2 or 7 times a week. MY 80 year old parents live in Vancouver Dad got me in kites , I got him in revs. Have been to the last 3 WSIKF's. Looking forward to New Year's day fly in San Diego and "KITE PARTY" in Feb.
I play well wih others ,hope to fly with some of you in the future!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS JOHN

You may have something here Sailor99. I know nothing about stitches or embroidery. Soooo after making an Excel spread sheet with all the guesses entered thus far, figuring all the available options and spreads within those options. Making a fine 3 color chart,,,, then deleting it all. I guess 0.

I am not in textile industry, so my wild guess would be a quarter of a million(250,000).

I think I am a bit in left field, so I'll change this to 66,000 stitches.

Hi All,

I think you are all doing really well LOL 30 !!!

Its been quite fun so perhaps I will do it again with
another item in the new year.

As we are in different time zones I will have a
count up tonight at 23:00 GMT and post the winner
on Christmas day AM. :)

The wife tells me I need to be in bed by midnight
otherwise Santa will not arrive with my presents
(seems to have worked for many years)

Best regards and have a great Christmas

Considering that the answer to God, Life, the Universe and Everything At All is 42, I'll guess 42,000!

And, boy that sample is really nice.

Cheers and happy holidays All!

Now Bob..... if you were of the younger generation or the cannabis generation, you'd know that number is simply 420
