Stripe It Rich with Melissa Leapman
Want to play with color? In this hands-on workshop, explore several interesting multicolor stitch patterns that are based on simple stripes. Using just one color per row, you'll create tuck stitches, drop stitches, and more. The techniques are easy, but the results are dramatic!
