    I love tea, cake (gluten free please), bright colours and gin & tonic.... not necessarily in that order! I design the patterns, paint the fabric, assemble the kits, post the mail and drink ALL the tea to keep me going! I am Stitchsperation!

Are these finished items for the wall?

No, these are cross stitch kits for you to complete yourself!

What is 14ct Aida?

Aida is what I call, 'traditional' cross stitch fabric. If you did cross stitch as a kid, you probably did it on this. The holes are very obvious and you can clearly see where the stitches go. Aida is quite stiff and and doesn't always require a frame or hoop to stitch on. Sticthsperation kits come with 14ct aida which means your design will have 14 stitches per inch. This is perfect for beginners.

What is 28ct Evenweave?

Evenweave may seem a little tricker than Aida as there are lots of holes, but produces a very clean background which can make the finished kit look like a print from a distance. The term evenweave applies to any fabric that is "evenly woven", so it has the same number of threads per inch in both the vertical and horizontal directions, and all the threads have the same thickness. Evenweave has more drape than aida so it's great if you want to make your finished piece into a cushion or bag. Stitchsperation kits come with 28ct evenweve, this means there are 28 stitches per inch if you stitch through every hole but the trick with evenweave is to stitch through every other hole, therefore getting 14 stitches per inch - the same as the aida!

Whats the difference between a regular kit and a mini kit?

Regular kits are the original size kits, the fabric measures approx. 33cm x45cm with a painted area of approx. 20cm x 21cm. They come with a 4-6 page chart and use 2 or more 8m bobbins of DMC stranded embroidery floss to stitch.

Mini kit fabric measures 24cm x 32cm with a painted area of approx. 14cm x 15cm they come with one 8m bobbin of DMC stranded embroidery floss to stitch.
