TUCKS TEXTURES & PLEATS
By Jennie Rayment
Explore the fascinating world of weaving, scrunching, tucking, and pleating; be guided through the tactile delights of fabric manipulation. Discover the simplicity of the techniques and explore the diversity as you create a unique masterpiece from the Bias Bobble to the delights of folded shapes such as Trumpets and the Origami Twist, Cross Over Tucks, Quilt-as-you-go, and the Bow Tie, plus much more. Included is a fully illustrated section on finishing techniques and extensive design suggestions within each chapter for development and embellishment. Textured garments are also covered in the text. Very little equipment is required. The samples can be stitched by hand or machine - a basic sewing machine will cope with all these techniques. An ideal book for both beginners and expert needlewomen/men of all ages and abilities, including all City & Guild Students. It's easy, it's fun, and it's different, and making mistakes will not matter!
