Cross Stitch Kits on Linen

Cross Stitch on linen gives the design a polished and finished look. It is the preferred material for the experienced stitcher, especially those who enjoy sampler reproductions. As opposed to cross stitching on Aida, cross stitching on any evenweave fabric, such as linen, requires counting the threads that compose the weave. The most common technique used for cross stitch is "stitching over 2 threads", meaning the needle will cross over two horizontal and two vertical threads, in a diagonal.
