Stitch & Slash

with Carol Ann Waugh
Popular instructor Carol Ann Waugh returns to Craftsy for more fiber fun. Get your seam ripper ready to destroy in the name of creation.

Carol Ann Waugh sums up her creative philosophy this way: "No rules, no mistakes." In this class, she introduces you to raw edge cutwork, an exhilarating and vibrant form of surface design. Using Carol's methods, you'll reveal amazing patterns, colors, shapes and dynamics. Carol starts with ideas about choosing the right fabrics, colors and values. You'll layer, stitch, then rip for stunning results. Add couching, surface stitching and embroidery, and use the fabric for quilts, decor, accessories and framed art. Have a blast as you stitch and slash!

Thank you for the inspiration!!"
