Fabric Manipulation techniques

I’ve been a bit quiet about this, but it is finally time to announce that I have written a book on fabric manipulation which will be out in 2013, published by David & Charles.

Details are to be confirmed so I can’t tell you a lot yet, but it will be out in the summer and it has over 150 techniques covering pleating and origami-style folding, gathering with stitch including smocking plus lots of appliqué techniques.

More information to come, but in the meantime, here’s a couple of samples – not from the book – which I am working on for a teacher workshop next week.
