1. Which do you prefer, Kits or Charts?
If it’s something that I don’t have most of the supplies for I prefer a kit. Now that I’m more into stitching on evenweave or linen, I prefer kits that have that (but most don’t).
The local stores around here don’t carry a large amount of specialty threads or so on so I have to order most of my supplies online.
3. How do you organise your materials before you stitch
I organize the thread by color by punching holes in a piece of manilla folder and writing on the folder the color # and symbol. Then I stick the thread through the holes. I also like to scan the chart and print another copy to work on.
4. Do you do anything to the sides of your fabric before starting?
I put masking tape on it, even though you’re not supposed to really.
5. What do you do with the leftovers when your done?
Put them with the rest of my leftovers in a drawer in my cross-stitch storage unit.
