Handmade cloth items always have a story, and many of us spend our lives hunting and gathering precious pieces and scraps to add that final touch of life to a special room or outfit. Cloth is an inspirational guide to the beauty, history, and utility of natural textiles. Woven throughout the five main sections--cotton, wool, silk, linen, and hide--are more than 30 breathtaking sewing projects that make the most of each textile's properties, including waxed-cotton purses, Liberty-print cushions, silk scarves, linen bedcovers, and leather journals. With a guide full of invaluable information on where to buy antique fabrics and organic and well-sourced cloth, plus a toolkit of essential instructions on hand-dyeing fabric, Cloth is both a resource and an opportunity to create practical, precious, and personal items for mindful living.

Please check this title’s status in the computer system. I’d like to place a hold on this book but I wasn’t able to thru the library website which I should’ve been able to do even on the copy on order. Thanks for looking into this!
