Sarah's new book
The first day of Craft, Hobby and Stitch International was very busy and there was a lot of interest in the new iron-on interfacings 'Decovil 1' and 'Decovil light' on the Freudenberg Vilene stand. They are fabulous products, particulary good for making bags and book covers, just the right support with out being too stiff.
The highlight of the show for me is being given a copy of Stitch, Cloth, Shimmer & Shine written by Sarah Lawrence. I know many of you are still coming to terms with Sarah's untimely death, we are all missing her like mad! This book will be a great comfort - IT IS FABULOUS!!! Get it! I have spent 2 evenings devouring it and stroking the pages.
The photograhs are excellent, particularly the ones of the more developed projects at the back of the book. Sarah takes you through all the processes you could possibley need for applying anything twinkly to your work. From gilding flake and heat transfer foils to working with metal and stitch. Whatever your experience level - you need this book. It is a book you will delve into again and again . . and again. As you would expect, Sarah has been generous with her information and how she creates her beautiful layers of colour and texture. . . .as usual, she has held nothing back!
