    Cult favorite printmaker and surface designer Hewett teaches her techniques for block-printing on fabric at sold-out online and in-person workshops around the country and is well known for wearing clothing she's made from her own printed fabric. Her first book is a stellar reference for the entire process of designing and printing fabric, then using it in projects. Hewett includes thorough instruction for every step, beginning with sketching a design and moving through carving the stamp, choosing fabric, printing, and cleaning up. The book includes photocopiable templates for primarily botanical designs and traceable sewing patterns for easy-to-sew projects including scarves, bags, tops, and skirts. An enclosed spiral binding ensures that pages will stay open for easy browsing while crafters have their hands full. VERDICT This unique resource is an essential purchase for libraries where craft titles circulate well.—Stephanie Klose, Library Journal
