Don’t make long jumps across the back of your fabric with the thread because they might show through on the front. When moving to a new area that is more than a few stitches away, you should end your thread and then begin it again in the new spot.

If you want to iron your cross-stitch project, set your iron to its lowest "Warm" setting. While ironing place your cross-stitch project on top of two or three smooth towels right side down.
You can use another flat towel to put over the back of the fabric ,to safely iron your cross-stitch design.
As you stitch, the thread will tend to get twisted. Every once in a while, let your needle and thread hang freely to let it unwind.
In order not to lose the needles for cross-stitching, you can glue the magnetic strip to the inner lid of the box in which you hold the embroidery threads and other cross-stitch accessories. You will no longer lose them and you will can easily find the right needle.
Traditionally, stitchers begin to stitch from the middle of the fabric to ensure the design is centered when finished. You may also count up from the center to the topmost left and begin stitching there.
