Do you use the parking method when you are stitching patterns with a wide variety of wall-to-wall colors? Personally, I don't use this method, so I can't speak from experience. I did find a great tutorial at Scarlet Quince about Parking Needles
. It is written quite simply and effectively. For a more advanced version of this method, see Becca's Pictoral Parking Demo
which has lots of of threads involved and lots of photos.
Since I have received several questions recently, and I would also like to learn more about this technique, I am turning to those experienced "parkers" in our midst. We'd like to hear your tips and hints. Post your advice in the forum
, in the comments section below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
