Cross Stitch Family

Cross stitch is probably one of the simplest and the oldest surviving stitches. This very popular stitch has given rise to many traditional embroidery styles across different cultures around the world. Usually, cross stitch is done over countable even counted fabric (aida fabric) to produce wonderful designs and patterns. Yet, we can manage to do it over normal fabric as well.

Cross stitch dates back to 5th century AD. It is believed that the popularity of ‘Blackwork’- another embroidery style of yesteryears- paved way to the development of cross stitch.

Cross stitch can be seen to used exclusively or as a part of traditional embroidery styles around the globe.
