Embroidery & Needlecraft Supplies FAQs

What is aida cloth?

Aida cloth is a specialist fabric with a distinct even-weave construction. This mesh-like fabric features distinct, evenly placed holes throughout the fabric to aid in creating neat and consistently sized embroidery stitches. Aida cloth is predominantly used for cross stitch embroidery, but can be used for other embroidery stitches as well. You can differentiate between different aida cloths by the "count" - for example, 18 count aida cloth has 18 holes per square inch. Higher count aida cloths mean more holes, and will create more detailed embroidery works with smaller stitches.

What is the easiest embroidery stitch?

If you're new to the art of embroidery then learning cross stitch is a great way to start. Cross stitch patterns feature an even grid of stitch markings a bit like a pixelated image. Cross stitching on aida cloth ensures you can place consistently sized stitches accurately, resulting in fabulous embroidered works for beginners and pros alike.

Is embroidery a good craft for kids?

Embroidery is a great craft for kids! If they're old enough to hold a needle safely then beginner embroidery kits are a fantastic idea for school holiday projects. Embroidery can teach great skills like patience, following patterns and learning how to combine colours - not to mention helping them perfect their fine motor skills. Look for mini cross stitch kits or embroidery kits with simple motif designs to get your little ones started - and give them the satisfaction of creating something from start to finish!

What Else Do I Need To Start Embroidering?
