I'm about to order aida from 123.stitch, and I see that the prices varies depending on the brand... Aida from Charles Craft are quite cheaper than aida from the other brands; Zweigart and Wichelt, but how's the quality? Is it the same? Anyone who's tried it?

I've never noticed any difference between brands at all, though I may just lack sophisticated tastes.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I should see what I have. It would be nice to have some cross stitchers chime in about it. I'm curious now.

Definitely Zweigart.  Zweigart sells some of the nicest linens too.  The only thing I buy from Wichelt is jobelan.
