Product description

Review

Mar 05 Gisela Thwaites has made a study of Indian textiles and embroidery techniques. She offers the book as a resource for crazy patchwork enthusiasts and embroiderers. The early part of the book covers basic techniques such as transferring designs to fabric and there is a short section on planning and design. Interspersed through the book are examples of Indian textiles and the Inroduction is a homage to India in which the author describes some of her journeys and the reasons why she finds India such a fascinating country. One-third of the book is composed of templates for use with the projects discussed. These projects could easily be expanded for your own use, especially those which demonstrate making a single motif that could be applied to all manner of backgrounds. The techniques range from beadwork and patchwork to embroidery. * Workshop On The Web *

About the Author

Gisela Thwaites is an established hand quilter, and was for many years a tutor at the Liberty Sewing School in London. Over the last few years she has developed a fresh approach to patchwork and quilting, characterised by embellishment and the bold juxtaposition of colours and fabrics. This new direction developed from - and is reinforced by - her annual visits to India and her study of Indian textiles and embroidery techniques. Gisela has contributed to a number of books and specialist needlework publications, and she exhibits, demonstrates and teaches widely.
