Recycling is a hot trend in embroidery, and this is the best book available on the subject. Covering both hand and machine stitching, it reconsiders embroidery by utilizing salvaged material from fabric, paper, dried flowers, and tree bark, to metal waste, plastic, broken jewelry, and personal souvenirs. Along with the practical instruction, there’s advice on how recycled items can add personal meaning to a piece of embroidery. Projects range from a cushion to a concertina book, and present innovative ways to use the latest miracle materials like Aquabond and fusible synthetic fibers.

About the Author:

Val Holmes is a well-known teacher and embroiderer. She runs very popular residential embroidery courses from her home in Lucon, France and exhibits her work widely. She is also the author of 'Collage, Stitch, Print' Creative Recycling in Embroidery' and 'Encyclopedia of Machine Embroidery', all published by Batsford.

From Booklist:

Consider the term embroidery in its broadest sense. French artist (and author of The Machine Embroiderer's Workbook, 1992, and Encyclopedia of Machine Embroidery, 2003) Val Holmes re-creates the 1970s concept of recycling into a host of techniques and ideas and a handful of projects that experienced stitchers will welcome. It's heavy on the ideas, such as dismantling an embellished garment and reassembling it for a more perfect, uniquely decorated fit; or the use of patchwork in inventing items fabricated out of plastics or metal. It also emphasizes a variety of techniques, many taking advantage of miracle materials like Aquabond (a water-soluble fabric with one sticky side) and crystal strands, synthetic fibers that fuse together when ironed. Full-color photographs of finished recyclables enhance the half-dozen projects--a cushion, makeup bag, concertina book--giving needleworkers inspiration that will last a literal lifetime.
