56% of you like to trace. 24% would like a transfer. 20% felt either one is fine.

2. Do you like to stitch your embroidery with floss or pearl cotton?
64% like embroidery floss. 8% use pearl cotton. 28% didn't have a preference.

3. If using floss, how many strands do you usually use?

4. If using pearl cotton, what's your favorite weight?
50% of those using pearl cotton chose size 8. 40% use size 12 (I think this is comparable to 2 strands of floss. 2% use size 5. 8% don't use pearl cotton.

5. What's your most used stitch; backstitch, outline or stem stitch?
