Summary
Overview: Individuality is key in today's DIY trends. Whether creating fabric art, sewing clothes, making home decor items, or quilting, people are looking for ways to make their projects unique and self-expressive. Fabric choices have narrowed and it certainly is not cheaper to sew than buy ready to use items, so when someone wants to use fabric to make something, their reasons are very often for the pure creative enjoyment of the craft. This is their comprehensive, how-to reference book illustrating all aspects of fabric art and manipulation. Artist galleries are included for inspiration. Author Susan Stein is a nationally recognized leader in the quilt and fabric art industry, leading the way with her cutting edge store and classroom. She demonstrates fabric art techniques and exhibits her own art quilts at national quilt shows. Susan is the author of Fabric Art Workshop and Fabric Art Projects
