An overview of dyeing starts withfibers and fabrics and discusses all aspects ofthe dyes favored by textile studios---fiber reactive, acid, vat, and disperse---before explaining discharging,screen printing, monoprinting, stamping, stenciling, resist dyeing, dvor, and painting. Would-be fabric artists are advised along the way to identify a personal approach to dyeing---free spirit?rule-follower?---andcolor photographs of work bytoday'stop fiber artists elucidate prevailing styles. Recipes and techniquesare accompanied by step-by-step instructions withphotographs, and a concealed spiral binding allows the book to lie flat. Ten appendicesincludeaworksheetfor recordingchemicals, procedures, and costs for allprojects; a guide to washing fabric; descriptions of stock solutions, thickeners, and steaming; a metric conversion table; and a guide to water temperatures.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fantastic, Inspiring, Educational & Fun  Jul 31, 2008
Just could not imagine a more comprehensive handbook - I learned so much and developed a great appreciation for our fabric artists and a strong desire to try many of these techniques myself.
Visually so-so.  Mar 11, 2008
While this book is technically excellent, I found the majority of the visuals so-so leaving me wondering why to bother learning this!
Missing   Dec 27, 2007
I would like to say that this book posted to me to the correct address has never arrived and I cant find anywhere else to tell you this important fact. Lillian Smith
So much, much more than I expected!!!  Sep 25, 2007
Others have already related the key points about this book. I just want to further confirm for everyone looking to buy it that this author really did an EXCELLENT job. She obviously is a art and TECHNICAL expert in this field. She could've taken less time and put out a book that would've gotten her a solid 4.5-star rating. Instead she obviously put in twice the time and ended up with a 10-star book. She gives you all the details that people serious about trying complicated crafts look for but rarely find without studying in the studio of a professional. I just picked this up from the NEW BOOKS rack at the library because I am generally interested in the subjected. Like the one person so far who has given her a lower rating, it did make me think that this is probably too difficult for me. But on the other hand, she has many photos showing the possibilities of what I might be able to accomplish if I did try and it's very seductive. Nothing very special worth accomplishing comes easily and that seems to also apply to fabric art. I also appreciate the thoughtfulness of her making the binding a spiral so the pages lay perfectly flat for easy reference while you follow the directions. If I decide to seriously try this craft, it will be this book that I buy and I doubt I'd even need to buy another one ever.
Throw away your notes - this is all you need!  Sep 3, 2007
This book has enabled me to recycle ALL of my class and workshop notes and just use this book - it's all there and in great detail. (now I have space for MORE books)
