The Intentional Thread: A Guide to Drawing, Gesture, and Color in Stitch

Drawing with Thread

The Intentional Thread by Susan Brandeis shows you how to communicate your ideas using line, shape, colour, and texture with this reference and how-to exploration in one. Whether your particular interest is pictorial, portraiture, abstract compositions, or actual text, you can "say" almost anything with thread.
More than 350 colour photographs translate the techniques of drawing, painting, and good composition into the world of stitch, and "Try This!" projects inspire your own individual approaches. Including the role of machine stitching, this design resource, learning tool, and inspirational reference help practitioners at all levels, whether beginning student, dedicated amateur, or professional. Take a lyrical—but logical—journey of skill-building, and begin to stitch intentionally and express your creative vision.
