Cross Stitch Lesson 1: General Cross Stitch Supplies

Good morning everyone!

As promised, here is a general list of cross stitch supplies you'll need.

  • Scissors
  • Hoop or other cross stitch clamping device
  • Aida cloth or other cross stitch cloth
  • Cross stitch pattern
  • Picture of finished cross stitch
  • Six strand embroidery floss
  • Embroidery/cross stitch needle


  • May I recommend buying a kit for your first cross stitch project. Most kits have everything you need except the hoop and scissors. Some kits even have the hoop!
  • Aida cloth is the simplest of all cross stitching cloths to stitch on.
Next week:
We'll go over how to prepare for your cross stitch project. I will have that ready next Monday or Tuesday (Jan. 18 or 19)

Have a nice day!
