Top 5 Must Haves for Every Cross-Stitcher

Top 5 Must Haves for Every Cross-Stitcher

It’s not uncommon for a stitching enthusiast to accumulate nice and cute little things that make the creative process more convenient and enjoyable. That’s only fair – to bring a beautiful piece of art into the world, the creator should be surrounded by lovely and stylish accessories as they are an important source of inspiration!

In this article, we’d like to focus on the crafting accessories that are a must for every cross-stitcher regardless of their skill level.

1. Scissors

Well, cutting off threads with regular scissors may be practical, but also very boring, don’t you think? You can make this routine process much more exciting with vintage ornate scissors that not only perform their function perfectly, but also are a masterpiece of their own.

2. Scissor charms

A scissor charm is a useful and stylish needleworker’s helper. This kind of shiny accessory made of various beads and pendants helps you to never lose your scissors while working. Just attach the charm to your scissors and this colorful little tail will always be within your sight, even though the scissors are hidden under the canvas or lost in the threads.

3. Pincushions

Apart from the scissors, needles also should be kept within your sight and reach at all times when stitching. We can offer a stylish solution for storing your needles – these cute plywood pincushions by MP Studia come with a magnet inside, so you won’t have to worry about losing your needles anymore. The designs are lovely and eye-catching, as well – definitely a must for your accessory collection!

 

4. Hoops and frames

Hoops and frames are important accessories that should be selected thoroughly because they directly affect the comfort when working on your cross-stitch project. They come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, made from various materials and have different designs.

Check out the Crafting Spark collection of frames available on our store – they are perfect for cross-stitching and beading and help minimize the strain on your back and shoulders during the stitching process, especially if your session lasts for many hours in a row. The Crafting Spark frames can be placed on the table, floor or sofa, which means you can sit comfortably in your chair or sofa and enjoy your favorite relaxing activity at the same time keeping any negative side effects down to a minimum.

 

5. Floss and bead organizers

When dealing with a large number of floss colors in a cross-stitch project, it’s crucial to prevent them from being tangled up as sorting your threads out in the middle of the creative process is simply a waste of your precious time.

If you would like to avoid this unpleasant occurrence, you might want to check out our thread organizers. For instance, the Crafting Spark thread organizer designed to separate up to 36 floss colors and comes with two stickers for marking the colors.

Besides, we offer a collection of unique thread organizers by MP Studia. These practical and cute organizes are made from 14 mm high-quality plywood and are safe to use. The variety of designs makes it possible to find exactly what meets your taste and is a good fit for your accessory collection.

Using lots of colorful beads in your projects? No problem, we've got you covered on that, too - the plywood bead organizers by MP Studia are an elegant and practical solution for storing your bead supplies. Each comes with a transparent plastic cover for convenience.

We’re sure that adding up new elements into your creative routine will boost your inspiration and make the entire process smooth and even more exciting. Moreover, the satisfaction from completing your masterpiece will be even higher!

So, if you lack any of the accessories we mentioned in this article, why don’t you browse our shop and pick an item or two for your amazing accessory collection right now? ;)
