Aside from the kit, you might also need an embroidery hoop. Craft Club cross stitch kits have everything you need to get started and finish a project successfully. Our fresh and modern cross stitch kit designs, including the flowers cross stitch and pot plant cross stitch patterns, can be quickly completed and hung on your wall.
How to choose the right cross stitch kit?
If you are just entering the hobby, you should definitely look for beginner cross stitch kits as they will help you master the skills required to tackle more complex designs.
Cross stitch kits for beginners include basic supplies and only a few colours. The coloured chart has symbols that can be easily read. Cross stitch kits from Craft Club feature fun and quirky designs that can be quickly completed in no time. Purchasing a kit from Craft Club means you don’t have to do the tedious process of purchasing materials separately.
If you are already an expert-level cross stitch enthusiast, opt for counted cross stitch featuring a more complicated design or image. Since you already know how to make perfect stitches, you can stitch advanced patterns with confidence. But similar to novice stitchers, it is recommended you still purchase kits. They come with all the floss and fabric you need. Buying individual skeins can get costly, especially if you require a lot of colours.
With this, you should consider the kits sold in our cross stitch shop since they have all the standard charts and suit the needs of beginner and pro-level stitchers. It is only a matter of selecting a design that you like.
What are your basic cross stitch supplies for beginners?
If you’re just beginning to take an interest in modern cross stitch projects, know that the best fabric option is a light-coloured Aida cloth.
The Aida fabric that comes with our cross stitch kit is a gridded fabric cotton characterised by its count. The smaller the number, the larger the stitches. Therefore, there will be fewer stitches in the one-inch grid. A 6-count Aida is best for children to start learning cross stitch, but for adults, there are 14-count Aida to get started on.
In the world of cross stitching, embroidery thread is often referred to as floss, particularly in the US. It is made from 100% Egyptian cotton. It has a wide range of colours. One of the most popular suppliers of floss is DMC. Their skeins are super lustrous and silky, making them wonderful to work with. The threads are colourfast and will neither shrink nor run in the wash if you’re careful with them.
Just like in latch rug hooking, the most crucial thing about embroidery scissors is they are extremely tiny and have a sharp point. This makes them ideal for undoing stitches and snipping threads from the spools in your cross stitch kit. There are numerous kinds of vintage scissors and unique designs to choose from.
When it comes to cross stitch kits Melbourne options, or those for similar cities, embroidery hoops are one of the handiest tools. The material for embroidery hoops can be plastic or wood. A wooden hoop of excellent quality is a great choice to get started. These are available from as small as 4-inch size right up to a massive 18 inches and even 19 inches.
If you are just starting in this hobby, opt for simple instructions and designs in an all-in-one cross stitch kit. Whole stitches are easy. Back stitching, for some, is more pro level. A good pattern will include a colourised chart for you to know which thread to stitch and where. The great part is that the varieties are endless. With a kit such as ours, you can make distinct lines for a cross stitch flower pattern or maybe even a cross stitch lettering pattern.
