Here you will find all my favorite bits and bobbles that you might need during your cross stitch experience; everything you need to cross stitch from floss to scissors, and more. While these are the things that I use, you may find yourself favoring different items or different brands of a similar thing. There is no right or wrong when it comes to supplies ~ use what you’re comfortable with and what makes you happy with your stitching.
Cross Stitch Needles
All of my needles are currently John James brand. Up until I switched to these, my needles were always breaking, bending, and tarnishing.

||I also really like hand-dyed fabrics! Actually, most of my stash is hand-dyed fabric.
Right now, my favorites come from:
Embroidery Hoops, Qsnaps, and Scroll Frames
I know some stitchers prefer just one of these things, but I use a variety of all of the, depending on the project size, fabric I’m using, and my mood that day.
(side note: I use an American Dream E-Z Stitch Lap Stand with a mixture of q-snaps and the scroll bars, depending on the size of project I’m stitching)
