Included in the Counted Cross stitch kits, you will find thread for your stitching, a tool for stitching, and the design you wish to make. The design is made out of plastic usually.
There are 216 raised stitches according to Rawlings, the manufacturer of baseballs for MLB. Red cotton thread measuring 88 inches is used in the stitching.
It is possible to get approximately 60 to 61 stitches per foot of thread. For one spool of thread or 100 yards, it is possible to get 18,182 stitches.
There are two tension adjustments on the home sewing machine. One is the top tension and the other is the bobbin tension. Both tension settings regulate the tension on the sewing thread. The top tension regulates the amount of tension on the thread that moves between the thread spool and the needle which produces the top stitches in your seam. The tighter the tension, the more taut the thread. The looser the tension, the more slack the thread. If tension is too high, the thread is strained, the stitches are tighter and the thread may break. If tension is too low, the thread is slack, and the stitches are loopy and loose. At ideal tension, the thread moves smoothly through the thread path and produces top stitches that are nice and even. The bobbin tension regulates the thread spinning in the bobbin and being pulled up into the bottom stitches. At ideal tension, the bottom stitches are nice and even, and cannot be seen from the top of your stitching. Refer to your sewing machine manual for the ideal tension setting on your particular sewing machine.
Basting stitches are long, loose, under and over stitches meant to hold fabrics together temporarily. Basting stitches can be done with single thread as opposed to double thread.
There is a thread that dissolve by itself in time and the stitches come out by themselves.

Assisi embroidery is a form of counted thread work. It is characterised by a background filled with embroidery stitches and the main motifs left as voids (see negative design), without stitching. The background stitches include cross stitch, herringbone stitch and long and short cross stitch. The main motifs are often outlined with stem stitch.
Temporary stitches, sometimes called "basting stitches" are stitches used to hold fabric in place until the main stitches are put in. These stitches are often larger than normal stitches, and are designed to be easy to remove. Temporary stitches are often done by hand with a needle and thread, but in some cases temporary stitches are placed by using the longest stitch setting on a sewing machine. Because the stitching is further apart, it is easier to insert a seam ripper under the threads, and easily rip out the temporary stitching without damaging the fabric.A garment sewer will baste a garment with temporary stitches so that the clothes can be tried on and the fit can be adjusted before permanently stitching the fabric together. This allows the garment sewer to make sure that a dress or jacket has a perfect custom fit without tearing out long seams of stitching meant to be more permanent.In quilting, temporary stitches are often used in paper piecing. The papertemplate is stitched to the fabric. This template gives the fabric shape, and prevents it from shifting. Once the fabric has been incorporated into the quilt, the temporary stitches can be removed.Temporary stitches can also be used when quilting a quilt. A quilter might baste together a quilt top to hold the layers together until it can be formally quilted. Once the quilt has been fully quilted, the basting stitches can be removed.Cross-stitchoften uses temporary stitches as well. Running threads at 5 or 10 square intervals on a cross-stitchcanvas allows the stitcherto more easily count across the canvas. These threads are removed when the piece is finished.In some cases, temporary stitches are removed after the completion of the item. Other times, the temporary stitches are removed as the permanent stitching is put in place. In cases where the temporary stitching is hidden in the seam, it can stay in place after the permanent stitching has been placed.Temporary stitches are not always taught in sewing classes. We often use pins or spray adhesive to hold fabric together until permanent stitching can be placed.Temporary stitches are large, easily removed stitches, also called basting stitches. They allow pieces of fabric to be held together long enough for fitting or adjusting, then easily removed to make changes.
