Cross Stitch Samplers can be used to record joyful moments in life such as the birth of a baby or a wedding. They are usually quite easy to sew yet attractive.

Someone new to cross stitch may perhaps opt for a birth announcement sampler by picking a counted cross stitch sampler kit rather than a stamped cross stitch set as it will be easier to keep the stitches even with counted cross stitch.

Whichever you choose, the results will be beautiful. They also make the perfect gift.

What is a Cross Stitch Sampler?

A cross stitch sampler usually includes alphabets, motifs, decorative borders and sometimes the date and name of person who produced it. It is an example of the skill of the person who produced the cross stitch.

In Counted Cross Stitch, the stitcher counts the threads according to a given diagram and follows the code in the pattern then sews them onto a countable weave fabric. It is easy to make the stitches even in size because you sew by code onto the special checquered cross stitch cloth also called the aida cloth.

In Stamped Cross Stitch, the stiticher stitches over the stamped patterns on a printed or stamped fabric. You will have to be more skillful in keeping the stitches even throughout.

Though it may appear as though stitching over a Stamped or Printed Pattern is easier than counting and following a pattern, it really is the other way around. Counting and sewing is easier and requires less skill in terms of how tightly or loosely you sew and in keeping the stitches uniform.

Stamped Cross Stitch vs Counted Cross Stitch

You need to be more skillful when sewing a Stamped Cross Stitch compared to Counted Cross Stitch.
