Praise for Carol Ann Waugh's Stupendous Stitching:

"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. All the colors, textures and NO RULES!!!!"
