Fabric for cross stitch are referenced with the number of stitches possible in an inch. 10- 14 are the best for beginners ; it will be very difficult for a starter to do crossstitch on fabric with 20 or more stitches per inch.

Once you have got a hang of the techniques of cross stitch you can use other fabric to do cross stitch designs like a woven fabric with an even weave . Even weave means the number of threads will be the same per inch horizontally as well as vertically, making perfect squares to do your cross stitch.You get cotton even weave fabric specifically suited for cross stitch in the stores.

In cross-stitching correct tension is important. Having too strong or too loose of a tension can totally destroy the impression of your project. The threads should be flat against the fabric you are using, but not too tight, so that they are actually pulling the fabric in any way.
