  • Aida Count

    Could somebody remind me of the difference between the Aida count material, I used to use 14 with two strands but a lot of kits seem to be in 16 or 18.

    I'm using 2 strands at the moment on 18 count, Hobbycraft have 14 ct right down to 6 count, but the main thing you need to watch is your needle size - a 24 will do most things, but use a 26 for anything above 24 count.
    Yes, everyone - another talent!

      The number corisponds to the count of holes per inch 14 is larger holes but less holes than 18 smaller holes (does this makes sence) so a finer finish on the end result. The count can go into the 20's this gets realy fidly to sew.
