Grandmother's Needlework is a collection that can be combined in the game.
Each Hidden Object Picture and Puzzle game in the Secret Society - Hidden Mystery has its own set of reward items that players can win, in addition to earning Experience points and coins. Many of these items form parts of collections that players can combine in order to win rewards.
This collection is currently not associated with an Artefact in the game.
See the List of Collections page for a list of all collections currently available in the game and the rewards for combining them.
Grandmother's Needlework CollectionEdit
Grandmother's Needlework is collection number 43 in the collections section of the game in accordance with the List of Collections Page. This collection was introduced to the game in the 1.3 update (April 2013).
Each collection in the game consists of 5 different collection items.
|Item 1||Item 2||Item 3||Item 4||Item 5||Combining Elements Required||Item Created by Combining||Reward for Combining|
|Ancient embroidery||Scrappy blanket||Lacy scarf||Knitted sweater||Woven rug||Trunk of a handy woman||6,000 Coins; Talisman Chest x1|
Once you have collected at least one of each item for this collection, along with the required number of combining elements, the COMBINE button on the right side of the collection will turn green. You will be able to combine the collection and receive your rewards. If the COMBINE button is brown, then you are either missing one or more of the collection items, or you do not have enough of one or more of the required combining elements.
There are several ways to obtain the collection items needed to combine the Grandmother's Needlework collection.
They can be: 1) won as a reward for successfully investigating any picture when it has the Scroll Eater Anomaly; 2) won both within, as well as before and after the quests for them; 3) randomly rewarded by the Collector desktop award; and 4) randomly rewarded from charging a friend's board when visiting friends. The collection items can also be gifted to friends (from your own inventory) and received as gifts from friends.
Grandmother's Needlework is a "mode dependent" collection. This means that the Grandmother's Needlework collection items are not won in any particular Picture or Puzzle, but instead become available to win in any Picture, once that Picture is in a specific game mode. In this case, the Grandmother's Needlework collections items are supposed to be won in any Picture that has the Scroll Eater Anomaly.
The chart below details: 1) Collection Item Name; 2) Find In Quest - the name of the quest; 3) Found After Quest Completion - where the item can be obtained after the quest has been completed; and 4) Giftable/Drop - whether or not the item is giftable, obtainable while visiting a friend's board as a drop, or both.
|Collection Item Name||Find In Quest||Found After Quest Completion||Giftable/Drop|
|Ancient embroidery||Great grandmother's embroidery||Scroll Eater Anomaly in any picture||Both|
|Scrappy blanket||The embroidered blanket||Scroll Eater Anomaly in any picture||Both|
|Lacy scarf||Decorative throw||Scroll Eater Anomaly in any picture||Both|
|Knitted sweater||Thick sweater||Scroll Eater Anomaly in any picture||Both|
|Woven rug||Guest rug||Scroll Eater Anomaly in any picture||Both|
Collection items with a green plus sign can be added to your wish list to indicate to your friends that you need the item. This is done by clicking on the green plus sign next to the item in the Collections window, at which point it will turn into a red x and will also show up on your wish list. You can also gift these collection items to your friends, either directly from their wish list or through the 'Send a collection item' tab in the gifting window for that friend. All collection items gifted to friends will come out of your inventory.
Collection items without a green plus sign cannot be added to your wish list or gifted to friends. It does not matter how many of that item you have in your inventory; if the item does not have a green plus sign next to it, it will not appear in the 'Send a collection item' tab in the gifting window. It is impossible to send or receive items that do not have a green plus sign, however they may be obtained through a drop while visiting a friend's board or by charging an award.
The combining elements required to assemble any collection can be won as a reward for successfully investigating certain pictures and winning certain puzzle games.
The following is a list of the combining elements that are required in order to combine the Grandmother's Needlework collection. Each combining element shows how many are required each time you combine a collection. (To view these combining elements, click on the above link.)
|Combining Element Name||Number Required|
Currently all combining elements have a green plus sign, which means they can be added to your wish list and gifted between friends.
Important: All combining elements in the game count as free gifts therefore they DO NOT come out of your inventory when gifted to Friends.
A glitch was introduced to the game by the 2014 Valentines Update that completely broke the mode dependent collections. This glitch caused mode dependent collection items to be awarded the play before the required mode instead of for the play of the mode. The downside of this glitch was that it became particularly difficult to win collection items that were dependent on Anomalies. The upside of this glitch was that players could predict the next mode that would appear in a Picture if any mode dependent collection items were in the list of rewards for the current play.
This glitch was finally fixed after over 2 years in the game by the Celebration by the Bonfire Update.
