Sharla's Comments:

Maggie Grey in Raising the Surface with Machine Embroidery covers all the new and exciting products found on the market and a few from the recycle bin too. These ideas can be used to enhance the build up and encrust the surface of any quilt, altered book, fiber art design and more.

Every page I turned revealed yet another wonderful idea of rich visual excitement. The books seems to be an unending resource for learning to use Angelina Fibers, glue gun, heavy embossing enamel powders, computer fabric printing, softsculpt, polymer clay, wire messing, chop sticks and and and ..... then build up with threads, threads and more threads. A true resource that will never grow stale.

Back Cover Information

Exciting, innovative and state-of-the-art machine embroidery from Maggie Grey, one of the most accomplished writers on the subject.

 

Raising the SurfaceRaising the Surface

Raising the Surface with machine Embroidery is a book for everyone who is interested in texture in embroidery. Beautifully illustrated, with clear instructions, it covers:-

  • Backgrounds, often using experimental or unusual materials
  • Raising the surface a little to produce highly textured, low relief embroideries
  • The next step - raising the surface even more
  • using applied motifs for high-relief textiles
  • Frames, masks and high-relief panels
  • Three-dimensional constructions, bowls, vessels and towers

All you need is enthusiasm and a swing-needle sewing machine
