    Fabric Count

    Question:

    When looking at the golden kite patterns in the store, I see the finished measurements are shown by 14, 16, 18, 24, 28, 30 count. Why is there no 20 and 22 count included? Is there no such thing? What count do you use??

    Thanks!
    Anna

    Anna, yes 20 and 22ct do exist and are quite easy to get hold of. I love to stitch on 20ct Bellana evenweave, 22ct hardanger is a nice fabric,it's a lot like aida but I find using 2 strands gets tight and 1 strand on darker colours doesnt cover very well. Aida also do 20ct and you can get them all here ..http://www.sewandso.co.uk/Fabric

    I also use and love 18ct Davosa evenweave
    Abi.....


    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not sure

    I have a very beginner question... if I were to buy aida fabric 36x50, but my project is 45x36, it doesn't matter what way I use the aida does it?

    While googling an answer to my question, I actually stumbled upon a very, very helpful site: http://home.comcast.net/~kathydyer/nf_xstitch_tut.html

    It talks about a lot of different things.

    I cannot get the link to work. I clicked on it and copied and pasted it. I get a message saying that the resource is not available and something about Apache Tomcat. Can you help?
