Fantastic Fabric Folding: Innovative Quilting Projects

"Origami Meets Fabric!"

This book provides a wonderful application of clever origami techniques to traditional quilt patterns that can expand every needlework artisans repertoire. It contains twenty-two projects for quilts, pillows, vests, and other items including templates and folding instructions for easy star, diamond, pinwheel, and other designs.   We recommend this book for all levels.

 

 


Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing Tradition Techniques Innovation

"THE book most used by artists"

The author, Yoshiko Wada,  covers the history of Shibori, it's artists and techniques with expertise and beautiful photos. With only a few books on traditional Shibori in English, in this book you will find an easy to read format. Techniques are covered with clear, detailed instructions and diagrams. This is most helpful for beginners yet allows the advanced to become more proficient and precise. The instructions for re-creating the patterns are clearly explained and easy to follow. This book would serve equally well as a reference work or even a coffee-table book for those with an interest in textile art or art history.


Shibori: The Art of Fabric Tying, Folding, Pleating and Dyeing

Somewhat limited in scope, but overall a very nice, well illustrated book  It includes a number of lovely examples of things that are possible with shibori. Would be a good reference for someone getting involved in Surface Design and Fabric manipulation.  This book seems worth its relatively modest price.
