The Art of Manipulating Fabric

The possibilities for three-dimensional manipulation of fabric - gathering, pleating, tucking, shirring, and quilting woven materials - are seemingly endless. To describe them all would be to describe the entire history of sewing. In The Art of manipulating Fabric, Colette Wolff has set herself just this task, and she succeeds brilliantly. Working from the simplest possible form - a flat piece of cloth and a threaded needle - she categorizes all major dimensional techniques, show how they are related, and give examples of variations both traditional and modern. The result is an encyclopedia of techniques that resurface, reshape, restructure and reconstruct fabric. More than 350 diagrams support the extensive how-tos, organized into broad general categories, then specific sub-techniques Handsome photos galleries showcase the breathtaking possibilities in each technique and aid visual understanding by emphasizing the sculptured fabric surface with light and shadow Textile artists and quilters, as well as garment and home decor sewers, will expand their design horizons with the almost limitless effects that can be achieved… (altro)

Gorgeous. ( )

An exhaustive compendium of sewing techniques. Very well illustrated with photos and drawings, and excellent detailed text. More than a how-to book, it's sewing as high ART. I would love to see more illustrations of the application of these techniques as pure art. ( )

The author uses many black and white photographs, drawings, and diagrams to show many ways to embellish cloth, both for home decoration and clothing construction, especially heirloom or costumes for theater. Covered are ruffles, flounces, godets, pleats, smocking, tucks, couching, quilting and trapunto. The lack of color is a plus in the photos as it does not detract from the design of the piece. ( )

WOW! This is a terrific handbook for exploring ways to "mashup" textiles. ( )
