Thanks Sirinth for the tips! I have been lurking like crazy, and watching how people do their thing. Hoping to get a camera soon so I can get started. My username is LadyAshlene so you might see me popping up around the creative channel.

I have been lurking at people doing cross stitch. I have a friend helping me work on setting up streaming. I might try to see you stream Ashlene. I probably should chat in streams. I have a little. I have watched a few that sew stuff. I should look at manual for sewing machine that I inherited and see what I can do with it.

I've been streaming games lately because the burnout is real, but I should be back to stitching soon.
Glad you guys are having fun! I know I've seen Ashlene around :)

Depends on what you want to do/what you're comfortable with.

Second monitor is nice, but not absolutely necessary. I've seen some stream off a small laptop before. :)
There's a million articles out there on the nitty gritty of getting started, programs to use, how to set it up, what to put on your layout, etc.

Since we get a lot of these questions lately, from new people discovering and considering streaming - we made an article showing some example setups. From the overly elaborate to the minimal laptop setups:

If any of you read Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, you may've noticed a Twitch related article in June's issue. :)

Credit to Kwarning for the photo, as my local B&N STILL does not have this issue in. >.<

This is the second magazine article on the subject, and a third coming in MrXStitch's new mag. :) So exciting to see the community grow. We've been sending people this way too, you'd be surprised how many nerdy stitchers haven't stumbled across the site yet. Or take a new look after asking about a pattern.

But I'd love to see more crossover in the communities!

I streamed last week. It was my first time doing it. I might try again this week. I got a copy of Cross Stitch Crazy and read the article. I am Debusa on twitch if anyone wants to look it up.

Hopping on this, even though I'm late. I've started streaming games lately. I want to stream cross stitching, but don't have a camera yet. Figured just listening to me breath and listen to music wasn't enough for a cross stitching stream. lol.

I'll definitely have to check you guys out. :D
