    Amazing Book! This book is a must have for anyone working with fabric in experimental ways. It is loaded, and I mean LOADED, with surface techniques (over 25), each with photo step-by-step instructions and several different ways to use each one. In the back of the book is a section on fabric collage quilts with artist’s examples, but the techniques could be used for many different projects in textile art. I plan on using it for my art dolls! Great book!! I’m pleased to add it to my library!

    Excellent primer for beginners This book covers most of the popular surface design techniques in current use, including Angelina fibers, various printing and painting approaches, bleach discharge, and even rust dyeing. There are good photos and one page dedicated to each subject, so it is meant to give basic steps for the beginner. It’s an excellent reference for those experimenting with surface design, or anyone who wants to have a quick and dirty guide with all the information in one place. Obviously, it wouldn’t replace a hands-on class in each topic for depth, but it really packs in a lot of information in a usable form. I highly recommend it for gifts or for those who can’t get to classes.

    Playing with fabric art This is a well-presented book, covering many of the newer embellishment and mixed media techniques that have exploded onto the market in recent years. Each technique is presented in about 4 or 5 pages. The illustrations are what make it so useful. You can work from the fairly brief written instructions because the pictures are so easy to follow. Each technique offers 4 samples used in different ways. From this you could improvise and adapt the technique to your own requirements. It is an excellent introduction for people wanting to play with a range of new materials and techniques before concentrating on one or two.
