Description
Learn surface design for textiles, to create rich and personally expressive fabric surfaces. Projects by expert Susan Brandeis (author of the bestselling The Intentional Thread) help novices and experts experiment with each method.

- Covers dry techniques in detail: how to add color, pattern, and images to fabrics using cutting, piecing, layering, building, and embellishing.

- Includes both machine stitching and hand stitching.

- What's the "Cumulative Cloth"? A single cloth that readers add to with each chapter's techniques, eventually creating a piece of art.

- Serves as a go-to reference to check technical procedures and safety guidelines (many methods require caution).

- Wet techniques are covered separately in the author's coordinating book, The Cumulative Cloth, Wet Techniques.

- Praise for the author: "Brandeis takes us on a journey into the expressive nature of stitch . . . reveals how to manipulate stitches much like an artist might a pencil or paintbrush." --Embroidery Magazine
