Book Information

Stitched textiles offer opportunities for widely diverse textures and surfaces. Whilst there is no official 'fashion' in this area it is undoubedly true that tere are trends in evidence at many exhibitions.

In this book you can look at different ways of producing surfaces that are multi-layered and in some cases richly extravagant. As well as using stitches and additions such as beads, you can also look at the use of the embellishing machine to create fabulous surfaces.
