Filled with exciting projects, this book provides a first step for textile artists looking to learn all the methods and techniques they need to begin 'painting with threads' using their own domestic sewing machine. This is a classic handbook, with chapters covering all the basics from tools and materials, methods and techniques, through to using your machine, experimenting with threads, fabrics and colours, creating your own designs and finishing and presenting your work. It will inspire enthusiastic beginners with limited textiles skills, as well as engaging those more experienced textile artists who wish to understand and adopt new techniques. The core of this book is a series of technique-based masterclasses, with step-by-step photographs.
