Fabric: Aida

Aida fabric is manufactured to be very evenly woven with the threads woven to create little squares with a small needle hole at each corner. The stitches are formed using these holes. It is available in many different thread counts and colors. The most common counts are 14, 16 and 18 count, that means respectively 14,16 and 18 stitches per inch - so, the higher the count, the smaller the stitch.
