Washing Artiste Cross Stitch

Hey guys! I am currently working on a cross stitch from hobby lobby artiste brand. I was wondering if anyone has washed one from them before and whether or not the colors run. Its a gift so I am scared to ruin it. I have only washed one other piece before and it was dimensions, which did not bleed at all. Thanks!

    I have never used the brand. In 30 years of stitching I only pre-washed floss two or three times. Only because I had recently read something that said I should do so. Never have anything bleed on my finished fabric. Of course, there is always an exception. If you are nervous about it, pre-wash. It will delay the start of your project a day or two but it will prevent you worrying about "what might happen." Go to top
