The Joys of Cross Stitching

Cross is a relaxing craft that has been a favorite for years. I learned cross stitching at my grandmother's knee when I was about 10. I can still remember resenting the time spent there learning how to put little stitches on fabric. I just couldn't see the sense in it. Now many, many years later I am thankful for the patience and perseverance of my grandmother. I have been cross stitching ever since and have loved every minute of it.

There are many ways you can use a cross stitch pattern. For our purposes, concerning this particular lens, I will be concentrating on how to use cross stitch to add fresh, one of a kind decor to your kitchen.

What type of fabric do you use for cross stitch

Counted cross stitch requires an evenweave fabric. An evenweave face is a fabric has the same number of holes vertically as well as horizontally. The two main types of evenweave fabric are aida cloth and linen.

Linen typically comes in an off white shading and is made from a strong, bleached flax. The most popular linen fabrics are: Edinburgh linen which in a 36 count; Belfast linen in a 32 count; Dublin linen in a 25 count; and Corn linen in a 19 count. Linen is typically used for finer, more intricate cross stitch patterns.

Aida cloth is a woven cotton material. It comes in many sizes including, 6 count, 8 count,11 count, 14 count, 16 count, 18 count, 22 count, and 28 count. Generally, the favorite size counts are 14 and 18 count. What the aida cloth count represents is the number of stitches per inch. So if you are using 14 count you will beable to make 14 stitches per inch.

Aida cloth also comes in a variety of colors. The colors most used are; cream, white, and beige. There are many colorful choices you can also use including: peach, blue, green, red, yellow, black. navy blue, and many more.
