Craft supplies - cross stitch fabric
March 20, 2014 - 6:13 am

Hi all,

I enjoy cross stitching, which requires something called aida fabric (it’s sturdy cotton fabric woven into a grid that you stitch your design on).  I’ve only been able to find it in these unrecycliable plastic tubes.  It’s not a huge deal – seeing that a single project takes me weeks or months to complete – but does anyone know of a place to get aida fabric in bulk to avoid the single-use plastic tube?

Aida fabric will crease permanently if folded. Keep your project in the tube. Use it for storage of something. Give it to a toddler for a toy etc etc
