Connecting art to stitch by sandra Meech.
Connecting art to stitch is a wonderful book written to help people who are confident with their stitch techniques but want to learn more about basic art and design skills. The book is easy to follow as each technic is set out with simple exercises. The fifteen "Art Classes" explore topics such as simple sketching, working with acrylics, mixed media approaches including collage, painting on fabric working with disperse dyes, photography and image transfer. Of course this book is no good sitting on a shelf in your work room, so I plan to give each excerise a go. Watch this space.
