How to Use
Aida fabric has a precise square-patterned weave with visible stitching holes that makes this fabric easy to use and allows your needle to easily glide through the holes. The number or count indicates how many squares are available per inch of fabric. Each square represents a cross stitch. Charles Craft Aida is available in a variety of different counts including 11, 14, 16 and 18. The smaller the fabric count the larger the holes. For example 11-count aida fabric has 11 holes per inch. DMC recommends beginners use 11-count or 14-count Aida as the holes are larger which make it easier to stitch and to count.
