This book is a must have for anyone working with fabric in experimental ways. It is loaded, and I mean LOADED, with surface techniques (over 25), each with photo step-by-step instructions and several different ways to use each one. In the back of the book is a section on fabric collage quilts with artist's examples, but the techniques could be used for many different projects in textile art. I plan on using it for my art dolls! Great book!! I'm pleased to add it to my library! --craftsonline dot com
