Yarn-Thread-String from Uppercase magazine Code: 987117
[Softcover, 496 pages] Yarn-Thread-String by Uppercase, part of the Encyclopedia of Inspiration series, features 65 artisan profiles! So much of what we make is created by using various fibers. Knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing, embroidery, rug-making, macramé and many more crafts are made possible with yarn, thread and string. This book gets up close and personal with fiber, telling the stories and processes from fiber farmers, thread and yarn companies to individual artisans. Yarn-Thread-String looks at natural fibers and how they are made, and how design plays a part in the visual appeal of fiber brands. It explores innovative fibers that repurpose and recycle our valuable resources. Yarn-Thread-String highlights artists, craftspeople and creative entrepreneurs who use these fibers in unique and inspiring ways. You will gain a new and exciting perspective on what fiber is — and how we can use it to express our individuality, creativity and humanity. Yarn-Thread-String has a dust jacket that can be folded to reveal one of four designs. Keep the jacket around your book or use it for gift wrap, collages or other creative projects.
