Product description


Colour is something we take very much for granted, and it takes an author like Ruth Issett to make us fully appreciate this wonderful phenomenon. --Yorkshire Gazette & Herald

Ruth has an intense passion for colour, and her enthusiasm for the subject is what makes this book so inspiring. The book is lavishly illustrated throughout with vibrant photographs of Ruths experimentation with paper, fabrics and stitching techniques alongside her tips and guidelines. --Sewing World

You only have to look at the first few pages of Ruth Issetts new book to know you are getting a cornucopia of delight and lusciousness. So many tips are given for good colour mixing and different recipes for colour combinations, this is a book that you will be refer back to again and again. --Workshop On The Web
