Take one strand and double it (most cross stitches require 2 strands, while back stitches require just one.)

NEVER make knots in your floss, so as to ensure a smooth finished back.

Why shouldn’t I wash my Bucilla tablecloth fabrics before stitching?
Bucilla tablecloth designs are stamped with water-soluble ink. If you wash the tablecloth before you stitch it, you will lose the pattern. When you are finished stitching your design, you will want to wash the piece so the ink markings do not interfere with your beautiful stitch work.
What is the difference between the solid blue patterns and the multicolor patterns in your Bucilla stamped goods program?
The blue ink is washable- you stitch it first and then wash it so the ink disappears. The multicolor ink is permanent. It will not disappear. The choice is yours for how you like to stitch.

What is needlepoint?
Needlepoint is usually worked on canvas that is printed with the design. You fill in the design areas with yarn. Needlepoint is “full coverage” which means that no canvas is exposed when the design is complete. The design is usually worked up with wool yarn in a continental stitch.
What is the difference between a whipstitch and a slipstitch?
