Paperback (8/3/2010)


Recycling is one of the hottest new trends in embroidery, and this is the first book on the subject. Covering the techniques of both hand and machine embroidery, it's packed with ideas for using different types of salvaged material--from fabric, paper, dried flowers, and tree bark, to metal waste, plastic, broken jewelry, and
personal souvenirs. Along with the practical instruction, there's inspiring advice on how recycling can be used to give special creative meaning to a piece of embroidery. The exciting possibilities are illustrated throughout with stunning color photographs of work by some of today's leading embroiderers.
