Choosing a cross stitch fabric for your kit


We believe that the gridding method is the most efficient method for stitching, therefore we recommend that you choose the Easy Count 14 ct aida (if available) in your cross stitch kit and here is why.
Benefits of 14 ct Easy Count gridded aida:

- The fabric matches the 10x10 grid used for pattern
- There is no need to count higher than ten.
- Helps avoid misplaced stitches
- Easy to determine where you are on the pattern
- Faster and quicker stitching because less counting is needed
