Presented with a plethora of surface design technique options, readers will quickly discover that they do not have to settle when it comes to the fabrics they use in their art. The step-by-step instructions and colorful, well-placed photos will guarantee success. Look to this book to create “new” and exciting fabrics to add to your artwork.” - Barbara Delaney, “Now Read This” Cloth Paper Scissors July/August 2010

Format: Paperback
Whether you are just starting on your journey with fabric art or are an experienced fabric artist seeking inspiration, this book is indispensable. Susan Stein has given us the perfect reference text for people who thrive on variety.

The book is divided into three sections: a brief introduction to color and fabric options, surface techniques, and texture (stitching, felting, weaving).
Each technique is lavishly illustrated and instructions are crystal clear. Necessary tools and materials are identified by brand -- much more useful than the often vague references to "fabric paint" or "foil." In addition, almost every technique is shown plain and simple, as well as in unusual ways. In fact, there is often a picture or project that suggests ways to use two or more techniques together.

Every few pages, there is a brief tip dealing with safety, experimenting, tools, or a suggestion to "try this." All of them make life simpler or more interesting.

Within hours of opening the book, I had made my first 9" square of chenille. And it found its way immediately into a small quilted panel, just exactly what I needed to add the correct texture to the piece. A few days later, I was reminded that fusible web could be painted -- a technique that gives a unique look to a fabric collage.

So: as the publisher says on the cover, this is indeed "the essential reference for novice and expert."

The best thing about this book (to me) is that it doesn't just show you one technique for using a certain thing (say..foiling or Angelina or paint sticks....it gives you several) Like mini chapters. So when learning or showing a technique you can have more fun. It does not limit you but gives you choices and ideas to use up all the supplies and materials we all seem to eventually have tons of. Nice intro to color theory and fabric selection. Not that I've ever understood color theory, but the page on fabric selection..aw-ha!
Photos are wonderful. Great reference book to have for altering and making your fabric into something more.

Format: Paperback
Covering over 40 techniques for textile artists, this is a useful reference. From selecting fabric to embellishing and altering it, this book has some great tips. Perfect for those who love to experiment and which textile artist doesn't? Clear photos and instructions. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

This book was everything I'd hoped and more. As someone who upcycles and recycles clothing, textiles and paper, I have found this has become an indispensable reference book in my techniques library. Photos are gorgeous and illustrate the techniques very well. The instructions are easy-to-follow and the results, I have found, are reliable and easy to build upon in creating one's own signature style. I recommend this to all sewists and textile artists whole-heartedly. Also, given that I run a waste-free sewing shop and design line, I have found a million new uses for found objects, recycled cardboard, my stash of a million elastic bands, etc. Everything in my recycle bin has found new uses in creating beautiful textiles from this book!!
