SBQ of the Week

Today's "Stitching Blogger's Question" is:

Do you think that you stitch neater on Evenweave than you do on Aida cloth? If so, why?

I started stitching on Evenweave(EW from here on) a few months and had only used Aida up till that point. I think I stitch better on EW. I have several reasons why I prefer EW over Aida and they are:

1. Aida cloth is a lot more stiffer and harder for me to work with in a hoop.
2. Sometimes it is hard for me to get the needle thru the aida when doing a 1/4 or 3/4 stitch.
3. The holes on Aida are more visible and a non-stitcher can easily see them where on EW the holes are smaller and not so noticeable.
4. I think that EW looks more "professional" in my opinion.
5. I just like it!

I have not used Aida cloth since I converted to EW. I have lots of Aida in my stash and I don't know if I will use it or not but I will save it for my daughters to use in their stitching adventures.
