Ready to start Baby in a Basket on Aida..directions say only linen....designed by Leavit-Imblum. What to do??. -- Janice Higgins from Lunenburg ,MA
- What is the count of the linen? Is it stitched over 2? You can stitch on Aida but check if there are half and/or quarter stitches (these prove difficult). If your linen is 28 count over 2, it is comparable to 14 count Aida. -- Pauline from Barnegat, NJ -- Sep 16
- There is no law that says you have to follow the designers "suggested" instructions. Stitch on anything you want. Just make sure that you make allowances for the count of the fabric. I promise not to call the Cross Stitch Police on you (LOLOL - I am being a little silly this morning.) -- NANCYE from MO -- Sep 17
- You are a stitcher after my own heart Nancye! I tell people that if the thread police come a knocking at my door, I'll be sure not to answer. I also have a stitched message that reads: Martha Stewart doesn't live here! -- Pauline from Barnegat -- Sep 19
- If a pattern says Linen only you will need to look to see if there is any "over 1" stitching areas-she often did that for faces, hands, arms. On Aida you will not be able to do that, as for each square you may need to have 4 stitches and they may be different shades of flesh color. Hope that helps. -- Jean M. Bendula from Ocala -- Nov 24
