Secrets of Machine Cross Stitching - Introduction

To Print

This topic is dedicated to a series of questions about cross-stitch designs - MACHINE cross-stitch designs - which we are constantly asked.

(Caution: What you might read now might change the way you feel about embroidery designs.)

Have you ever tried the Cross Stitch technique? Well, you might be surprised to know that you do not need any special software or any other "Add-Ons". Just you and your embroidery machine…

If you’ve never tried Cross Stitch, or maybe you haven't even heard about it, here you'll find some basic tips, instructions and free patterns for beginners.

We know you will fall in love with machine cross stitching and recognize that it is art in itself; the same way we did.

As a bonus, we are also including a freebie rose design for you:

What Is "Count Size"?

Although each design (and even each separate object within an embroidery design) has some kind of stitch count, we are now specifically referring to machine cross-stitch designs.

You can see that our Cross-Stitch embroidery designs are offered in 3 count sizes - 14, 16 and 18.

These count-size numbers indicate how many stitches per inch are in each version. The higher the count number, the denser and smaller will be the design. It goes this way:

  • 14 counts/inch - large-sized designs - fairly loose
  • 16 counts/inch - medium- sized designs - medium density
  • 18 counts/inch - smallest-sized designs - most dense

Here is a close-up photo of the same rosebud, embroidered in different counts:
