The author of the bestselling "Fusing Fabric" takes a fresh look at the creative possibilities of the soldering iron-the tool that revolutionized textile art. Inspired by traditional embroidery and sewing techniques, Margaret Beal experiments with a variety of synthetic fabrics--including Evalon, Lutradur, and polymetallics--to develop new surface textures and three-dimensional pieces. Along with detailed instructions, Beal presents a beautiful display of today's most exciting textile work.
