It has a natural mesh that facilitates cross stitching and enough natural stiffness that the some crafters do not need to use a hoop. We have Aida from multiple manufacturers in the counts shown below. Most items are available in multiple colors and some can be cut into different sizes for you.

Fiddler's Cloth Cross Stitch Fabric Fiddler’s Cloth is similar to Aida. But where Aida is smooth with even spacing of the threads, fiddler’s cloth is slightly irregular producing a more country or rustic look. Aida is best for more formal projects, but if you’re working on something less formal, give fiddlers cloth a try for a more rustic, rural or aged look.

Perforated Paper

Perforated Cross Stitch Paper During the Victorian era, most perforated paper projects consisted of bookmarks or bible verses made into samplers that were hung on the wall. It is still used today for the same purposes. It comes in a variety of solid and marbled colors and is generally 14 count. Perforated paper is great for Christmas ornaments and bookmarks!

Cross Stitch Waste Canvas

Cross Stitch Waste Canvas Waste Canvas is used to stitch on fabrics that are not cross stitch friendly, such as clothing, table cloths and napkins. It makes it eash to count and position your design, and when you’re finished, you wet your waste canvas and gently pull it out from under your design so that all that is left is the design stitched on the fabric or garment.
