Praise for Val Holmes's previous title, Creative Recycling in Embroidery "Consider the term embroidery in its broadest sense. French artist (and author of The Machine Embroiderer's Workbook, 1992, and Encyclopedia of Machine Embroidery, 2003) Val Holmes re-creates the 1970s concept of recycling into a host of techniques and ideas and a handful of projects that experienced stitchers will welcome. It's heavy on the ideas, such as dismantling an embellished garment and reassembling it for a more perfect, uniquely decorated fit; or the use of patchwork in inventing items fabricated out of plastics or metal. It also emphasizes a variety of techniques, many taking advantage of miracle materials like Aquabond (a water-soluble fabric with one sticky side) and crystal strands, synthetic fibers that fuse together when ironed. Full-color photographs of finished recyclables enhance the half-dozen projects--a cushion, makeup bag, concertina book--giving needleworkers inspiration that will last a literal lifetime." - Barbara JacobsCopyright (c) American Library Association.
