Library Journal Review

The vast array of fabrics and decorative threads available today gives quilters and wearable-art designers many choices. Add the element of fabric stamping, and the design possibilities are almost limitless. A fabric stamp may be an elaborate commercial rubber stamp or a "found object" stamp like a carved pencil eraser or a stamp cut from an old inner tube. A prolific author and quilting teacher, Laury examines in depth the methods for stamping on fabric, including choosing fabrics, the process of printing, working with stamped letters, setting up all-over patterns, and other uses for stamps. She includes six learning projects and invaluable comparative charts of materials used in making stamps, as well as the paints and dyes most suitable for fabric stamping. A full-color gallery of fabric-stamping art accompanies the instructional material. A bibliography and resource lists round out this excellent introductory book. Enthusiastically recommended for all public libraries and textile collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
