The Stitcher's Five:- Kitting Up

1. Which do you prefer, Kits or Charts?
Well I used to prefer kits, simply because of the ease of them, but lately I have been purchasing more charts as my floss stash has grown.
2. Why?
see above
3. How do you organise your materials before you stitch
It depends on whether it is a kit or not. If so, then it's mainly been organised for me. If not, I photocopy the chart for a working copy, then use either bobbins, which I don't really like, or a new floss organiser that I have.
4. Do you do anything to the sides of your fabric before starting?
I use a lot of hand dyes fabric and it is pre serged for me. Other than that I either zigzag it or use masking tape.
5. What do you do with the leftovers when your done?
If it's a kit, it all get sleft in the kit pack for future use. If it's stuff I've sorted, then it goes back to where it came from!!!
