Artisans On The Hill - Tinonee
Counted Cross Stitch

Introductory Class

Counted cross-stitch transfers a design from a printed graph onto evenweave fabric. The stitcher uses embroidery floss to place X's on the fabric corresponding to symbols on the chart. The different styles of symbols on the chart represent different colours of floss. Cross-stitch is easy to learn and requires only a few skills and supplies. The price includes a beginners cross-stitch kit, which has all the required embroidery floss, fabric and needle. You will have the use of an embroidery hoop, which you may purchase.

In your very first cross-stitch lesson, you will learn the following skills:

  • To understand the use of different kinds of materials
  • How to read a chart – find the centre and understand the different symbols
  • How to centre the pattern onto the material
  • The use of stranded cottons – how many threads to use, how to separate threads, how to stop threads tangling
  • How to use an embroidery hoop or frame
  • How to start stitching – beginning and ending threads
  • The importance of direction when stitching
