The Art of Stitching on Metal
Workshop On the Web: As Ann Parr points out in her introduction, a wide range of metal forms are available for the textile artist and seemingly no end to the ways they can be heated and manipulated to produce spectacular results. Thank goodness that she has written this book to explain it all to us. We have an introductory section, which shows the metal used in the book, and also shows a variety of fabrics (decorative and backing), wires and threads and particular effects which sets the tone of the book. After decorative effects have been studied, you are moved on to a section on stitching, where there are 12 projects. Anyone looking through the first pages of the book to see Ann's beautiful piece 'Chatelaine' will be delighted to be able to experiment with stitching on pewter, which can give a wonderful filigree effect. So many techniques on metalare included. For anyone who has seen pictures of metalwork and have thought it was beyond their capability, you find find out just how user-friendly and versatile this material is in textile art. For those with a bit more experience, there will be inspiration on how to move one step ahead. Samantha Packer Machine Knitting Monthly: A beautiful book, it includes advice on materials, fabrics and finishes, wires and threads, adding texture and colour, decorative stitching, free machining and embellishments. We know that very many of you use embroidery machines and love the creativity it brings. If you're one of these readers, you simply must beg, borrow or buy Ann's book. The projects range from jewellery to richly decorated boxes and panels and combine traditional and contemporary methods and design to excite and inspire. The book is a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration with stunning photographs of Ann's own pieces. A thorough exploration of machine-stitching on metal covers everything from free-machining to decorative stitching and the sections on woven metal strips, edgings, braids, beads, tassels, cords and a wide range of decorative finishes will not fail to fuel your enthusiasm and creativity. It's a 'must have' for everyone who enjoys machine embroidery. Sewing World: This is an amazing book full of ideas for creative textile artists looking to stitch something just a little different. Using a wide variety of base metals, author Ann Parr shows how to produce a stunning range of items including jewellery, containers, boxes, book covers and decorative pieces that are richly coloured and highly textured. Beautifully photographed in close detail, the book guides the reader through every step from start to finish including selecting materials, treating them with heat and substances to achieve a variety of finishes, adding colour with various processes and embellishing with free machine stitching. Finishing processes include foiling, stamping, stencilling and embossing whilst stitching techniques include decorative hand and machine methods plus beading and trimming. Tassels and cords can also be made to provide the perfect finishing touch. An inspiring title for multi-media stitchers. Quilting Arts: If you have ever thought about including metal in your art, [this book] will convince you to do it. The book begins with a detailed discussion of materials. From there, Parr talks about coloring metal with heat, chamicals, paints, inks and polishes; moves on to embossing, with helpful tips on using household items; and then on to stitching, from straight stitching to free-motion to using pre-programmed machine stitches...all on metal! Her explanations are thorough and her process shots are well-placed and helpful. So as not to leave any process unvisited, the end of the book explains weaving, embellishment, edging, punching metals, and making beads, tassels and cords. I don't think she's missed a thing. With the vast collection of colorful photos of both materials and processes, you're sure to be successful...and have a lot of fun along the way. If you ever thought stitching on metal was difficult and challenging, this book will have you thinking otherwise. Parr makes it look so doable that you'll wonder why you haven't tried it before. She has divided the book into three sections: Materials, Decorating the Metal, and Stitching. The photos are plentiful, varied and stunning. Readers are presented with 11 beautiful projects with easy to follow instructions, everything from small boxes to bookmarks, vessels, and cuffs. How about a quirky metal doll or some wonderful tassels or beads? Parr has chosen inspiring examples that are well-photographed and strategically placed. The process shots in the decorating and stitching sections are close-up and very helpful. This book is a gift; it is not only an inspiring source of information, it is a visual feast.-Quilting Arts I used to claim that I included glitzy, glittery items in my quilts because my kids liked them, but I've been forced to admit that they're there because I like them. This book is filled with ideas of additional items that can be added to my collection - types of metal that can be stitched through and added as an embellishment to textiles, and metals used as decoration that can be embellished by using stitches to create patterns on the metal. Parr gives descriptions of the types of metals that work best: copper, aluminium, brass, stainless steel, pewter, as well as wires and threads. She then shows how to manipulate the surfaces with heat, chemical treatments and paints, as well as various textural additions. And finally she shows how to attach the metals to your projects. She also covers the use of foils and embossing powders. Parr gives step-by-step instructions for 11 projects. One of the most beautiful is the lid for an oval box made of pewter where the surface of the metal has been decorated with machine stitching. I can't wait to start playing...-Fiber Art News
