Counting Holes - To count a large number of hole, use a hole scaler. The Needlecraft Shop
If you want heavy coverage along the canvas edge, use a double strand of yarn for overcasting. The Needlecraft Shop
An ideal marking tool for plastic canvas is a fine-point overhead projection marker, available at office supply stores. This marker is dark and easy to see and washes off with water. The Needlecraft Shop
If you have barely enough yarn to finish a section, you can prevent having to start a new stran for only a couple of stitches by using a crochet hook to pull the yarn through. The Needlecraft Shop
If you accidentally cut or torn a bar or two on your canvas, glue the bars with a tiny drop of craft glue, super glue or hot glue. The Needlcrat Shop
