If you’ve done cross stitch before, you’ve probably heard of Aida cloth. Aida is an open weave fabric designed to be strong and evenly woven, and is one of the most popular cross stitch fabrics on the market. Aida is great for cross stitch, as its design ensures your stitches are not pulled out of position easily and prevents your work from loosening or warping. With its natural strength and durability Aida cloth is a fantastic choice for any cross stitch project.
How to Pick the Right Cross Stitch Fabric
Picking the right aida fabric you need is simple! Firstly, decide on what fabric count you would like to use: the higher the fabric count, the more holes there are per square inch. Higher fabric counts are a little more challenging to work with as harder to see the holes. If working from a pattern, the designer may suggest the count that works best for their design. If you’re a beginner, we recommend choosing 14 count, which is our most popular base. Secondly, find your perfect aida colour to match your project. Finally, if you are buying for a pattern, the chart will indicate the size of the material you will need to use to fit your project. Remember to leave at least a 5cm border of extra aida cloth around your design for framing.
