The best fabric for cross stitch other than even weave fabric and aida is Linen. Linen and evenweave look almost the same. Linen has small slubs in its surface but this wouldnot look so obvious once cross stitches are made. Linen has a beauty unparalleled as well as the weave is very apparent which makes it best for this embroidery.

When choosing supplies, purchase the best you can afford. Everything you choose does not have to be the most expensive, high-end model, but there are some supplies you should not skimp on. Floss and fabrics should be good quality, especially as you start to work on larger projects.
Good scissors for cutting fabric and flosses are a must. Cross stitch does not have to be an expensive hobby, but if you are investing your time in creating an heirloom sampler, you will want to be sure that the supplies are of a quality that corresponds to your effort.
