I know everyone says to start in the center, but I hardly ever do! I stitch holding the projet in my hands, no hoop or anything else. I find the center of the project, then stitch everything to the right of the center line, keeping the left side rolled up & clean, when I am done with the right side, I roll that up & work on the left side, that way the stitched right side is kept clean while I am stitching on the left. As far as finding the center, just take the # of horizontal squares in your chart & divide by 2, count starting from the left until you hit the middle number, then I draw a red line on the chart. Follow the same procedure when determining the vertical center. I hope this information has helped you with your project.
