11 Count - 20 Count Aida

Aida cloth is a popular choice for beginners learning hand stitching because it is easy to work with. It has a simple, open weave with evenly spaced holes that make it easy to count and follow a pattern. This is particularly helpful when learning basic embroidery stitches, such as the running stitch or the backstitch, as it allows the stitcher to easily see the path of the thread and the placement of each stitch. Additionally, the stiffness of the fabric helps to keep the stitches even and neat, making it easier for beginners to achieve a professional-looking result. Overall, Aida cloth is a useful tool for anyone learning hand stitching because it provides a clear, easy-to-follow surface for practicing and perfecting embroidery techniques.

 Aida comes in a variety of sizes or counts which represents the holes per inch. The most common sizes include 11, 14, 16, 18 and 20. The higher the number, the smaller your stitches will be. When stitching on Aida you go from hole to hole.
