9780713688689: Machine Stitch: Perspectives

Machine Embroidery is hugely exciting in terms of its potential as a
creative medium and is part of a flourishing creative industry both in
design and production. MMU hosts a specialist embroidery department,
which has been instrumental in artistic and

educational innovations in this area since the 1960s. The lecturers,
graduates and students have remarkable expertise in machine embroidery,
and MMU is home to a rich and unique archive of machines, samples and
artwork, both historical and contemporary. This book will celebrate
this archive, as well as providing the only definitive record (and
exploring the potential) of the huge number of machines currently in
use from the traditional Irish Embroidery machine to the new generation
of computerised sewing machines. The book will demonstrate how key
machines can be applied to the artistic, industrial and domestic practice, and shows machine embroiderers how to combine techniques and
develop their ideas using machine embroidery. Each contributor gives
their own individual perspective on machine stitch.

Review:

“'The most important book for any textile student or machine embroiderer'...that sums it up neatly...Those who teach in art colleges and curate fashion and textile collections as well as historians of textiles, technology and education will find much within its pages. Makers of all descriptions will find engaging its emphasis on the machine as a tool...Excellent and abundant illustrations are supported by equally excellent captions that include details of materials, methods and dimensions...The book functions, in part, as an introduction to the MMU collection which not only includes designs and textiles--produced commercially and by post-1970 students--but the machines themselves.” ―Crafts Magazine
