Cross Stitch Railroading Tutorial
I've written this tutorial as an aid to cross stitchers who want to know about the railroading technique: what it is and how it's done. This is the method I use when stitching; with practice, it becomes a very automatic motion. Railroading is a good habit to get into to keep your stitches looking their best.
