A gorgeous and inspirational book, showing how to create pictures with thread. Increasing numbers of textile artists and designers now use thread to draw with, on a wide range of mixed-media - including paper, flat fabric, manipulated fabric, various resistant materials including ceramics - experimenting with stencils and stitching, combining stitch with monoprinting, using both hand and machine stitch, and using everyday materials such as baking paper and newspaper to create one-off pieces.
