Stitch, Fabric & Thread

Stitch, Fabric & Thread
Brand: Margaret Light
Product Code: Stitch, Fabric & Thread
Price: $49.00

This creative book encourages people to experiment with stitch, fabric and thread to create their own unique textiles.

It is created for people who are who are interested in embroidery and stitch generally, who are uninspired by the usual 'beginner's guide' or 'how to' style of book, and are looking for a book that is heavy on content, but presents the material in a way that is visually exciting and stimulating.

It is a treasure trove of over 40 inspiring practical exercises, a rich and creative exploration of fabric and stitch, and a fascinating all-round read.

The exercises draw inspiration from around the world: create corded works of art inspired by Milton Glaser's iconic Bob Dylan album cover; create bold embroidered African masks; layer up and cut away to create Mola applique; use bleach and fabric paint to create Aboriginal dream time lizards; create knotted works of art inspired by ancient Mayan counting systems; embroider varsity cross-stitch letters or try out decorative Japanese book binding. Alternatively, try a host of other techniques such as quilting, printing, dyeing, couching tumbled crockery, creating pleats and puckers and needlelace.

Packed with stitch galleries and bursting with slow sewing ideas, the book also contains 'behind the stitches' features: illuminating insights into sewing movements such as Boro textiles, Gee's Bend quilting and Dorset buttons.
