Christmas is always a good time to get new books, and I always enjoy the feeling of having something special to look at for the rest of the year and beyond.
I had two new textiles books as presents for Christmas, both of which were on my wish list!
Approaches to Stitch edited by Maggie Grey is a compilation of work by six well known textiles artists, Ro Bruhn, Elizabeth Brimelow, Ruth Lee, Sian Martin, Olga Norris and Beryl Taylor. It is available from D4daisy books.
Sew Wild by Alisa Burke also includes a DVD, and is full of ideas for ways to produce your own original fabric by dyeing and printing.
