1. Cross Stitch Fabric
Most cross stitch projects are made on Aida or Evenweave Linen fabric.
For beginners we recommend to start stitching on a white Aida 14 count cross stitch cloth. This is the most commonly used embroidery fabric.
For children and people with difficult eye sight, we advise to use White Aida 6 count cross stitch fabric. As the grid on this fabric is about 2,4 times larger then a 14 count fabric, it is very easy to see the holes. Using Aida 6 count fabric will blow up your pattern, so ensure you get a large enough piece.
With some experience you can move from Aida to linen fabric, this will give your fabric a finer end result. Read this blog with our tips for stitching on linen fabric, and learn all about the different types of cross stitch fabrics here.
