Overview

The Art of Manipulating Fabric / Edition 2

The possibilities for three-dimensional manipulation of fabric - gathering, pleating, tucking, shirring, and quilting woven materials - are seemingly endless. To describe them all would be to describe the entire history of sewing.

In The Art of manipulating Fabric, Colette Wolff has set herself just this task, and she succeeds brilliantly. Working from the simplest possible form - a flat piece of cloth and a threaded needle - she categorizes all major dimensional techniques, show how they are related, and give examples of variations both traditional and modern. The result is an encyclopedia of techniques that resurface, reshape, restructure and reconstruct fabric.

  • More than 350 diagrams support the extensive how-tos, organized into broad general categories, then specific sub-techniques
  • Handsome photos galleries showcase the breathtaking possibilities in each technique and aid visual understanding by emphasizing the sculptured fabric surface with light and shadow
  • Textile artists and quilters, as well as garment and home decor sewers, will expand their design horizons with the almost limitless effects that can be achieved

This book is very comprehensive! the pictures in the book are black and white ( I was sent the 1996 edition) but very clear. The instructions are detailed and do require a knowledge of sewing and how grains of fabric work. I have been sewing for 48 years and modify most of the patterns I use, had many AH-HA! moments looking through this book. So many things I want to try out. If you want standout stylish clothing or decorative sewing through out you home, you will love this book.
