Wow! One of our members, Debbie Bates, has just published this wonderful new book! Here's the blurb:
Discover the amazing versatility of thread with this superbly illustrated guide to the basic techniques, and beyond. Be inspired by the surprising evolution of thread from a device used to hold fabric together into a creative tool that beautifies projects with designs, colors, textures, structures, and more. Whether you're expanding your knowledge of traditional techniques, or experimenting with thread painting or moulding thread structures, Threads: The Basics & Beyond is your one-stop guide to everything you need to know, including: dozens of techniques illustrated with step-by-step photos; more than a dozen original projects to practice on; a reference guide to materials and equipment; a gallery of inspirational thread projects; and, much, much more!
You can read lots of interesting posts about thread on her blog.  Congratulations, Debbie!
