Up Close with Fibre: Making Manufacturing and Creating
Janine Vangool


So much of what we make is created by using various fibres. Knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing, embroidery, rug-making, macramé and many more crafts are made possible with yarn, thread and string.

This book gets up close and personal with fibre, telling the stories and processes from fibre farmers, thread and yarn companies to individual artisans. We'll look at natural fibres and how they are made, and how design plays a part in the visual appeal of fibre brands. We'll explore innovative fibres that repurpose and recycle our valuable resources.

Yarn-Thread-String highlights artists, craftspeople and creative entrepreneurs who use these fibres in unique and inspiring ways. You'll gain a new and exciting perspective on what fibre is – and how we can use it to express our individuality, creativity and humanity.

"I want to tell you what a great book 'Yarn-Thread-String' is.  I bought it from you a few weeks back.

It is packed full of beautiful things made by brilliant people plus information and inspiration.

Even though I am getting seriously old I still love making and creating, having experimented over the years doing all sorts of arty/crafty things - but always coming back to fabric and fibre.  There is so much that can be done with them so I will be able to spend many happy hours browsing and being inspired.

Thanks for your great service and lovely books."
