It is surprising that being a long time cross stitcher, nobody told me how to know what is the count of my Aida cloth. Ate Lily, the owner of Simplicity Craft and Frames County at SM Sta. Rosa, Laguna, told me the trick.
As an experience and older cross stitcher, I am so amazed with her knowledge about cross stitching. Here’s how you will know the count of your fabric.
Get a ruler, and place it in your fabric. Count how many grids (the square where the X rests) will be there in 1 inch. For an illustration, here are the 2 Aida cloths that I have in stock.
Remember that the smaller the number — the bigger the grids are. The bigger number- the smaller the grids are.
