Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Recycling is a hot trend in embroidery, and this is the best book available on the subject. Covering both hand and machine stitching, it reconsiders embroidery by utilizing salvaged material-from fabric, paper, dried flowers, and tree bark, to metal waste, plastic, broken jewelry, and personal souvenirs. Along with the practical instruction, there's advice on how recycled items can add personal meaning to a piece of embroidery. Projects range from a cushion to a concertina book, and present innovative ways to use the latest miracle materials like Aquabond and fusible synthetic fibers.
