The latest book from one of the world's leading textile artists and authors on designing for textiles, written especially for those with limited art training and drawing skills. From Image to Stitch takes a range of techniques - that don't include drawing - for design development, such as using computers (quite simple programs), digital cameras and images, photocopiers, tracing paper and copyright-free design books, and shows you how to make the most of them when designing textiles (especially with the photo transfer to fabric methods). Examples of the design process with a range of full finished textile pieces help guide and inspire. The book is divided into four sections, each concentrating on an area os study: form in nature; landscape; travel; and ethnic sources. Suggestions for researching in each of these fields is given, and then how to translate the research and images into design and finished textiles. Of course the designs and transferred images will be embellished by hand and machine stitching, felting, applique and mixed media techniques - all explained step-by-step.
