On the Surface: Thread Embellishment and Fabric Manipulation

On the Surface: Thread Embellishment and Fabric Manipulation

by Wendy Hill, Liz Aneloski

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Surface stitching, says Hill, requires only three things. You must be conscious, your sewing machine must have the capability of sewing a straight stitch, and you must have some time actually to do the stitching. She might have added that this type of stitchery requires a hefty thread budget. The object of this type of surface stitching is to embellish fabric with multiple layers of straight stitching, combining varying weights and colors of thread with different stitch styles to achieve a textured fabric that lends itself particularly to wearable art clothing. Hill combines clear instructions for mastering this technique with an attractive selection of projects in surface design. The author claims to have "kidnapped" two women from the parking lot of her son's school and forced them to test instructions in her book. Highly recommended for project-oriented textile collections.
