It can be tempting to leave your cross stitch project attached to the embroidery hoop, either overnight or when it's not in use - but don't! Those hoops are great tools for working, keeping your fabric tight and firm, making the stitch process easier, but they can damage the fabric if they're left inside for long periods of inactivity.
Our advice is to give your project a proper rest - loosen the tension and place your work-in-progress somewhere safe where it won't get damaged or creased.

Aida – Most beginners start their cross stitch projects on Aida fabric. This is a somewhat loosely woven fabric meant for cross stitch with prominent threads; looks like a fabric made of threads grouped together. It is also very inexpensive but not suitable for functional things because of the holes in the fabric. 14 count Aida is universally the most popular cross stitch fabric.

For beginners Aida is one of the best fabric for cross stitch, because of the readily available weaves. You may need to interface the cloth if it is too loose.
