Review

Couldn't wait to receive it and it lived up to all my expectations. It is a wonderful new hobby which I am hoping, with the help of this book, to eventually conquer. Very informative and inspiring. -Pamela A. Gaskell

About the Author

Terry has designed and worked embroideries by hand since elementary school. In 1996, she learned free-motion embroidery and has spent the time since developing her techniques and designs so she can create new needlework by machine as beautiful and texturally interesting as work done by hand. She teaches across the country and is known for helping students develop their own style of this very easy form of needlework.

More About the Author

Terry was born an artist. Among her 8 brothers and sisters are artists, musicians, a master carpenter, a fantastic nurse, an adventurer, teachers, cooks, gardeners and singers. Many of these talents overlap in her siblings.
Her mom is an artist and interior designer, her dad was a creative engineer holding patents in the tube mill industry. So, creativity was encouraged in their big noisy home....and Terry could draw.

Terry's fascination with the needle arts started early inspired by her two Grandmothers' gifts. Her Nana would make fantastic Mardi Gras costumes which would end up in the girls' dress up box. Her Grandma Blanche would send accessories which she purchased at flea markets. The fabrics, trims, and beautiful costume jewelry delighted the senses.

Terry began to draw for needlework projects. She learned embroidery, crochet, knitting, macrame', simple weaving, needlepoint, crewel, black work and applique so she could realize her visions in fiber. Each time Terry wanted to make something which required a new technique, she would learn it...usually from books and magazines....but she always created her own designs for the project.

Growing up in the south suburbs of Chicago, Terry could hop a train and spend a whole Saturday wandering around the Chicago Art Institute. She spent one afternoon laying on the floor in front of an old altar covered in gold threads and stumpwork. She decided she would write a needlework book when she grew up. At 51 years old, she realized her dream with the publication of,"Thread Painting Made Easy".

I had the pleasure of taking Terry's class and this book reflects that class perfectly. Her easy-going personality shows in the book and the pictures of examples (I think they're actual size} make it so clear that you can easily tell if you're doing the techniques right. The photos of her work are very impressive and the book is very good quality. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in beginning thread painting. I fell in love with it early in her class and the book (and DVD) are very easy to follow.

Not only did I learn to threadpaint but I learned more about thread and design than I ever knew. The designs are beautiful. The step by step instructions made learning to threadpaint fun. Terry puts the fun back into sewing!

I bought this book not only because I like thread painting, but because I just loved the design on the cover! There are so many more beatiful designs in the book. The author is truly an artist! Lots of great inspiration!

This book is great for both beginners and advanced stitchers. The instructions are clear and well written with lots of diagrams and photos.
