    Description* This much-awaited second book by leading textile artist Gwen Hedley is a guide to using line and other forms of mark-making in textile art and embroidery * A structured series of exercises helps the reader explore the limitless possibilities of line and boost their confidence in this fundamental area * Illustrated with stunning examples from the author and other leading textile artists Line is an essential component of textile art. When used effectively, it can convey texture, tone, form, movement and mood. Drawn to Stitch is a practical guide to the uses of line in embroidery and textile art, presented as a structured series of exercises designed to help the reader explore line's potential and develop their own creativity. It covers line and mark-making tools, materials and processes - including printing and mixed-media techniques - and then moves into stitch, explaining how to interpret different line qualities from crisp and sharp to soft and diffused, from raised and overlaid to recessed and inlaid. Full of inspiring ideas, the book is illustrated with stunning examples of stitched-textile work.
