Continuing from a few days ago, today I’m featuring some of my favorite cross stitch supplies and suppliers that I love.
DMC Embroidery ThreadI think this is the universal thread that everyone uses, and it works well for me. Plus, I have been collecting, sounds better than hoarding, this thread over the years, so I usually go to my stash first if I need a color for a project.
Q-Snap FrameI love the Q Snap Quilting Frame that I picked up at Joann Fabric a few years ago. I prefer it to the embroidery hoop because the frame is thicker and gives me more to hold on to. Maybe I’ll buy myself a stand someday.
For years I used the 14 count Aida fabric you could find at any craft store, and it works fine for me, but then I bought some 36 count linen online and have been forever hooked. I still use the craft store fabric, but if it is anything super special or complicated I opt for the linen.
I have bought many of my cross stitch supplies and patterns online, but my two absolutely favorite online shops are 123 Stitch and The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. 123 Stitch features a little bit of everything: patterns, kits, supplies, and notions. While The Frosted Pumpkin primarily features patterns, although they do carry some fabric, kits and super cute stitch minders.
