Cross-stitching where you can sit back, relax and share your passion for cross stitching. You can make new friends, exchange tips or designs, and have your say in our stitching chat forum. Of course, children won't be able to sit down and stitch a complicated chart immediately. It takes patience and time to help them understand how to work a cross stitch and how to follow a chart, But with a little help from an adult, it really isn't that difficult and some of the results can be amazing. So, in this special feature, we're going to take a look at how to teach children cross stitch, and show you some of the various materials, kits and products that will make learning cross stitch a fun experience for everyone.
