This application helps cross stitchers determine what size fabric they need before starting a project. You enter your stitch count, the fabric thread count, and an optional border. You are then told what size fabric you will need for your project. Optionally, we also calculate the fabric size if you are stitching over two threads.

Never buy the wrong size fabric again!!

Numbers are off

The first time I put in a size 7x7 with a 3 inch border it gave me the wrong size now it won’t work at all.

Go-to XStitch Calculator

Love this app on my iPad Pro. I regularly update my software and have yet to experience any problems with the app not working.

One reviewer said the app didn’t calculate correctly, but I disagree. If you have a 4x4 project and want a 3-inch border all around, the fabric size would need to be 10x10, not 7x7. (Remember, you’re adding 3 inches to ALL sides: 3+4+3=10.)

Because none of us want to run short on fabric in our final stitched piece, the app rounds up. I like this feature. I’ve been burned too many times when I tried to save money by skimping on fabric. Better to spend a little money than waste a lot of time (and money) finding out too late that you cut your fabric too small.

Worked great before

I've used this app for years and it has always worked great, now it doesn't work the same way and isn't always accurate. The entire reason that I have this program is to prevent mathematical errors before I cut my fabric. As an example the pattern I was working on was 4 x 4 my math says with a 3 in border this should be 7x7 what I was told by the program was a full inch more on either side. This isn't too big a deal for me as it's slightly more but what if it had given an inaccurate amount to the negative? Free is great but accurate is a must have! Please revert to the old trustworthy version.
