It is well written, full of amazing examples, very readable. View or edit your browsing history. Every so often I take it down and flip through it just to get ideas.

I love this book. Couture Sewing Techniques Claire B. Most of the techniques illustrate some form of puckering or pleating, and Wolff comes up with effects I’ve never maniipulating dreamed of. Ever wonder how your grandmother made those pillows that look like they are woven out of strips of fabric but are actually just carefully pleated?

Big Embroidery Nancy Nicholson. Sometimes when I need inspiration I just leaf through the book and admire the photos. No trivia or quizzes yet. It truly is one of the better sewing technique books I have encountered in many years. Textile Landscape Cas Holmes.

Wonderful instruction for adding texture and shape to fabric. I loved watching the things she created and the photography was very useful. So if you are really advanced quilter, you will find the quilting section thin.
