A gorgeous and inspirational book, showing how to create pictures with thread. Increasing numbers of textile artists and designers now use thread to draw
with, on a wide range of mixed-media - including
paper, flat fabric, manipulated fabric, various resistant materials including
ceramics - experimenting with stencils and stitching, combining stitch with
monoprinting, using both hand and machine stitch, and using everyday materials
such as baking paper and newspaper to create one-off pieces. Packed with wonderful examples of work by contemporary
makers, this book shows how to design and develop your own work using
needlework, paper, print, sketching, and stitching.

Lots of useful tips to help you think outside the box, and suggestions on how to record your experiments ... There are nine projects in all, but what is striking about them is that they are relatively simple designs, but look much more complex. The beauty of these is that the basic techniques have been combined really effectively, and there are instructions given on the inspiration, the preparation and execution of the pieces ... If you are reasonably confident in basic techniques, but want to experiment in a new arena, this would be an interesting book. * Workshop on the Web *
