There are so many fabulous Cross Stitch Kits on Etsy but it’s no use purchasing them if you don’t know what you are doing.

So, What Is Cross Stitching Exactly?

Cross Stitching is a style of old fashioned embroidery. It has quite a following. It is a series of small cross stitches that come together to form an image or a design of sorts.

Many use a hoop frame for this craft and kits are also popular as they contain everything that you will need for your project.

Starting Your Cross Stitch Pattern

We have checked many of the Youtube Tutorials and there appears to be some controversy about how to correctly anchor your floss after threading your needle.

There are 2 schools of thought. The first is to simply knot your thread. The issue with this is your cross stitch can quickly look very untidy on the reverse and also leave small knotted balls that may show through your fabric.

The second way, which is much neater, is to anchor your floss using a tail. The benefit is that you end up with a much neater result for not that much more work.

When selecting a Video Tutorial to teach you, we found that many received confused feedback from beginners. This is not the case with the video we are sharing with you.
