Book Description

7 Jun 2014
Explore the fascinating world of weaving, scrunching, tucking and pleating; be guided through the tactile delights of fabric manipulation. Discover the simplicity of the techniques and explore the diversity, as you create a unique masterpiece from the Bias Bobble to the delights of folded shapes such as Trumpets and the Origami Twist, Cross Over Tucks, Quilt-as-you-go and the Bow Tie plus much more. Included is a fully illustrated section on finishing techniques and extensive design suggestions within each chapter for development and embellishment. Textured garments are also covered in the text. Very little equipment is required. The samples can be stitched by hand or machine - a basic sewing machine will cope with all these techniques. An ideal book for both beginners and expert needlewomen/men of all ages and abilities including all City & Guild Students. It's easy, it's fun and it's different, and making mistakes will not matter!

Product Description

About the Author

This skinnyish, reddish-haired, slightly wacky Brit is totally obsessed with 'Nipping and Tucking' - fabric manipulation and surface texture. Unique in her field, she's now internationally known for her quick, simple, innovative and original techniques with manipulated material and her hilarious lectures with real 'Strip, Show and Tell'. Jennie teaches a wide variety of classes for all levels and abilities of sewers from patchworkers, quilters and embroiderers to fashion, soft furnishing and home decor enthusiasts. Indeed, anyone interested in any form of needlework will be totally captivated by her deviously ingenious textural designs and can benefit from the wealth of creative ideas arising from her magic manipulations. Although, much of her work is created in simple calico known as muslin in the USA, her elegant ideas and natty notions may be adapted for any type of fabric and used to make quilts, wall-hangings, boxes, baskets, cushions, table linen and of course fashion garments and accessories. She works and teaches on a variety of sewing machines from Bernina, Husqvarna, Pfaff to Brother, Janome and Elna but her delectable creations can be made by hand. With seven books on fabric manipulation techniques, many articles and a variety of patterns, Jennie's material magic goes on and on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for fiddly fingers that love fabric 9 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Spiral-bound
This book is a great buy for anyone who is fascinated by fabric texture. It is a bit boring to look at, but the illustrations are clear, the instructions are easy to follow and the author's enthusiasm is infectious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great directions easy to follow.. 5 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Spiral-bound
This book is well written with many graphic examples. Jen Rayment is very creative, her directions are easy to follow and she encourages the reader to enlarge their own artistic designs. She adds humorus stories and she bridges the language usage gap between British and American word usage and definitions. I saw her on television in the United States and ordered all three of her books, each is different and gives new ideas. Thanks Jen.

4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful pleats! 7 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has some beautiful designs which look very easy: they aren't! they do require some skill, but the instructions are good and you just need to practise! Good diagrams and very inspiring. It arrived very quickly, sooner than I expected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating 14 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book, it makes my fingers itch to get going. Although the instructions for the techniques are great, I would have liked more information on how to construct the projects that are featured.

I didn't realise it was an older edition but I am still very pleased with the book. Jennie gives clear instructions and the effects look stunning but are not as difficult as it looks. I am looking forward to working my way through the book to the rather more complicated ideas - and am gaining the confidence to 'play around' with different effects.
