How to get started with cross stitching?
Let’s start with the basics and see what supplies come with each of our cross stitch kits Australia.
The most common and the best fabric for cross stitching is a light-coloured Aida cloth. It’s the gold standard of stitching. Aida fabric has easy-to-count small squares and the most popular one is Aida in 14 counts, relatively easy to use and found in our cross stitch kits. The general rule of thumb is that lower count sizes are better for beginners.
We also include a full pack of embroidery thread for your project. It comes in a variety of colours, depending on the design of your choosing. Silky and bright, it’s perfect for cross stitching.
Embroidery hood is also included in our cross stitch kits Australia. Because you have to flaunt your masterpiece after you’re done!
