ISBN 9781900371612 Indian Inspirations


Full Description

Over the past few years Gisela has been making annual visits to India, studying the sumptuous textiles of the country and learning embroidery techniques from its people, and then incorporating these ideas into her own work and teaching. In response to this Indian inspiration she has developed a fresh approach to patchwork and quilting, characterised by rich embellishment and the bold juxtaposition of colours and fabrics. Now, through this book, you have the chance to learn these fabulous techniques too. Drawing on her long experience as a needlewoman, Gisela offers Indian Inspirations as a resource for crazy patchwork enthusiasts of all skill levels. In the book she introduces many simple Indian-style embroidery stitches and techniques, then shows numerous ways in which you can use them to enhance your own patchwork and quilting. Photographs of India, taken on Gisela's travels, give fascinating insights into the everyday lives of the country's embroiderers, dyers, weavers and fabric printers - and the pictures of new and antique Indian textiles, and of Gisela's own embellished quilts, will provide endless sources of inspiration for your own work. Contents: 1 X 120 Page Paperback With 100 Colour Illustrations Author: Gisela Thwaites Author Bio - Gisela Thwaites is an established hand quilter, and was for many years a tutor at the Liberty Sewing School in London.
