Essential Gifts For Cross Stitch Enthusiasts

If you know a lady who is into counted cross stitch, you’re in luck because you’ve got a fantastic go-to solution for any and all gift-giving occasions. The most basic supplies that every cross stitch enthusiast will need include a pattern, fabric to stitch the pattern onto, some thread, a good tapestry needle and some scissors, but there are plenty of other things you can look into depending on your budget and the occasion.

Embroidery HoopA hoop or other frame is a useful present which will help keep the fabric taut while it is being worked on. This makes stitching easier and also makes it easier to see the fabric weave in order to put the needle in the right place – in fact a nice hoop or frame is an ideal gift for a cross stitch beginner for this reason.

Needlecraft OrganiserA needlecraft organiser is invaluable to stop the hobbyist’s work area ending up a dishevelled mess of thread cutoffs, fabric scraps and old, finished charts. You can get a wide range of gifts here – everything from armchair needlecraft organisers to file inserts for organising threads to sturdy plastic satchels or even portfolio-style totes for keeping entire in-progress projects in.

Vintage Needlework ScissorsA pair of scissors may seem like a trivial present, but you can get some unusual and very stylish varieties which can actually make ideal gifts if properly packaged. A cheap pair are more likely to be mislaid, broken or lost, so actually getting someone a pair of nice and distinctive scissors to be used for their needlework can be very thoughtful. Try something like these lovely vintage scissors, for example!

Magnifying LightMagnifiers and lights are often popular, and not just amongst older hobbyists. Whether it is a simple hand held magnifier to help read a chart or a special magnifying lamp to both illuminate and assist with stitching fine detail, these tools can be a great and highly practical present for your local cross stitch enthusiast.

Cross Stitch KitFinally, cross stitch kits are a fantastic one-stop gift solution for if you’re getting a gift for the hobbyist who already seems to have everything they need in the above, or if you’re dealing with someone who just prefers to have one project bag with everything they need in it. You can get cross stitch kits on a wide variety of subjects and scenes so you’re bound to find something suitable at any decent crafts store.
