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.Copyright 2018 Library Journal.
