Designer Effie Mitrofanis has a playful and creative spirit—and in Threadwork, she shows readers what can happen when you let your imagination go wild and think outside the usual sewn square. Her sumptuous collection showcases gorgeous collages created on layers of assembled fabric, and then embellished with rich and colorful silks, transparent organza and ribbons, metallic threads, beads, and raised embroidery stitches. Twenty-eight amazing projects include gift wrap, bags, frameable panels, concertina books, and more.

Review:

June/July 10 You can't fail to be inspired by this wonderfully colourful book. The 28 projects are all clearly explained and illustrated with an abundance of sketches and colour photographs. The projects are organised into four sections: backgrounds; stitches for texture and effect; cords for embellishing and trimming; and stitch and bead patterns - and each section is more luscious than the last. The wrapped and embellished cords, sometimes enriched with knots and beads, are absolutely gorgeous; they can be used singly, twisted or plaited together, couched onto fabric to create pattern or texture, become an integral part of an embellished surface, or provide the perfect finishing touch to a project. Using richly coloured silk fabrics and brightly coloured threads (Effie gives a list of 'zinger' DMC colours she likes to use), every embroidery in the book is a mouth-watering confection. In fact, I think the whole book is a 'zinger'! * Stitch *
