Alex and Ricky welcome back popular quilt artist, teacher, author, and creator of beautiful hand-dyed fabric and thread Laura Wasilowski (Episode 303) for an update on what she's been up to. Then Laura, a founding member of The Chicago School of Fusing, reviews the ten commandments of a fused art quilt, demonstrates a variety of hand embroidery stitches, and shows how to create and use hand-carved stamps to add texture and dimension to your fabric stash. You'll pick up lots of great tips, both on the embroidery and stamping processes and the products to look for. Speaking of fabric, we finish off with a visit to Violet Craft, a young Portland, OR, fabric designer whose work exhibits a fresh, contemporary flair.
