If you are like most stitchers compensation is an issue, I know that often it is for me.
That’s why Joni Stevenson’s series on compensation is so great. She’s taken a shape (black line on the drawing) and shows us, step by step how to compensate it when you are stitching with a diagonal stitch.
I love that she shows us how to place each row and that she shows what teachers say but often brush over, “Make the whole stitches then fill in.” She’s also honest and offers good advice on what to do with problem areas.
It’s the best tutorial I’ve ever seen on compensation.
