Product Description

Review

A field Guide to Fabric Design by Kimberly Kight (click here for a link to her Blog True Up ) is well worth reading for anyone interested in finding out more about this fascinating field. It is suited to those with a casual interest through to professionals looking to expand their expertise. It covers all the basics of fabric design from design and colour, types of motif, creating repeats by hand on the computer to printing and even selling your designs! The book is really well laid out with clear headers, images and tutorials throughout the book. Scattered throughout are question and answer sections from some of the US s leading printed textiles designers. This book talks about the US market but the principals are the same wherever you are and I would highly recommend it. --boudesignblog.com; June 11, 2013

Format: Paperback
As someone that knew a lot about fabrics and sewing but only the basics of fabric printing, I found this book to be brilliant. I dream of becoming a fabric designer and this book makes you feel that the dream could come true, with practical advice on how to realise it.
It contains information on pattern repeats, colour, motif size, copyright as well as printing techniques, fabric type, weight etc. The book is well laid out and contains lots of lovely images of some great fabric ranges.
I read it from cover to cover as it was a great read. I throughly enjoyed this book and it is one that I know I will continue to dip in and out of for years to come. This book is a keeper and I definitely recommend it

Format: Paperback
This is bound to be a very popular book as fabric designing is so desirable and so now. Kimberly starts by taking a look at contemporary fabric design, she then goes deeper into the fundamentals of design and colour. Patten layout and repeats is a good section. She looks at different ways of designing - by hand drawing, Illustrator and so on. There is an in-depth look at printing methods and producing fabric. Designers give their insight too. I liked the layout and design of this book and it has very good content, written in an easy to understand style with excellent supporting photographs. Basically this book will take you through exactly what you need to know to be a fabric designer. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

A good book if you are a beginner to design or a newcomer to the idea of putting your creative ideas onto fabric. Lots of methods and ideas covered and plenty of technical stuff too.
