How to get started

If you are new to cross stitch and wondering how to get started, this is a good resource to use.  For this section we are going to assume that you have purchased a kit and therefore have all necessary equipment you need to complete the project.


It covers most of the basics but there are always thisngs to learn and incorporate into your stitching. 

Step 1: Finding the centre point on your cross stitch project.  Fold the fabric in half and open out and then in half again (going the other way).  Make a small rough cross where the two folds intersect.  Watch the video below for a demonstration.
