Proper Supplies for Embroidery
Cross Stitch Supplies can be simple. You don’t need a lot of different supplies to create a Cross Stitch project. Begin with embroidery floss, aida cloth, a tapestry needle, a hoop, scissors, and a pattern of your choice. Embroidery floss comes in a large number of colors. Almost any color you can imagine! The Sullivans brand carries the 489 solid colors and can be found at MyNotions.com. The floss is made up of six strands of thread. Depending on the aida cloth used, you may have to separate the strands. For example, 14 count aida cloth typically uses two strands at a time.
Tapestry needles are the perfect Cross Stitch Supplies. They have blunt-ends and large eyes. The blunt ends will help make sure the needle only goes into the premade holes in the fabric. The size of the needle will depend on the number of threads being used. If you notice your need bends or breaks, try sizing up your needle. Sizing up means your needle number is smaller. We also have ball-tip needles which are excellent for Cross Stitch designs.
