Stupendous Stitching

Adventures in Surface Design

with Carol Ann Waugh
Set your sewing machine and imagination free in this fun exploration of embroidery designs, decorative sewing machine stitches, couching and binding.

In Stupendous Stitching, you’ll learn how to incorporate all kinds of stitches into your next fiber art project - whether you’re embellishing a quilt or adding pizzazz to a garment. Award-winning fiber artist Carol Ann Waugh will teach you how to change the look of each standard stitch by modifying its length or width, and you’ll create a personal stitch bible to serve as a handy permanent reference for future sewing and embroidery projects.

"Carol Ann is a teacher. Not every artist or expert has that skill. The pace is spot on, her enthusiasm is catching and the instructions are clear. I have liked every Craftsy class I have taken to date and have learned from them all. But, this one also makes me feel happy."
