Embroidery hoops and frames help to the fabric in right position and to keeping stitching tension even. If it is possible, choose a hoop that will be bigger than your design, this way you will be able to complete the x-stitch project without repositioning the frame over stitched work.
Don't forget to remove your embroidery hoop in between stitching sessions so that your aida fabric does not stretch.

Use a sharp pair of small scissors to avoid frayed ends on your floss. There are many embroidery scissors or thread clippers to choose from. The most useful size of embroidery scissor for cross stitch is probably 3/12 inch or 4 inch. It is a convenient size for snipping ends of floss while you stitch. Clip the floss with a small tail or with no tail at all. It’s a matter of choice. Beware of ends showing through the fabric. We have many fancy designer scissors and several more plain scissors to choose from. Some of my favorites are by Gingher and they are truly collectors items. They come in a variety of colorful handles and there are new ones every season. Right now the newest one is called Tessa. Store your scissors in the sheath that they come with or in a scissor block if you collect scissors. A scissor block is similar to a knife block.
