Whether or not you go, Creative Uses for Decorative Stitches explores the decorative stitches that come with a sewing machine, and offers insight into this artist's own work. For those who sew, take your quilts to the next level of creativity by using the decorative stitches built into your sewing machine. For those who love the art of fiber, savor the insight into the process of creating these fiber works of art. The 11 projects are intended to serve as practice for getting to know what your machine can do, and to see how to use each project's stitches in ways unique to your own artistic vision. Stitches are cleverly grouped into forms, such as flowers, leaves, stems, bushes, ferns, grids, shapes, and fillers. Mixing and matching stitches, thread weights, and items from these groups gives the reader unlimited options for spicing up their quilts. Written as a companion volume to Karen's first book, readers who love to experiment will find that this book, written for any type of sewing machine, can stand alone.
