Oh, how I wish I had found this book 30 years ago--so many possibilities of venting creativity and inserting beauty into possessions or personal creations. Whether you are most comfortable with paper or fabric, and possess an artist's hand or a wall painter's broad paintbrush, this book will open the door to fabulous creations of beauty and usefulness .

It tells you everything you need to know to make them. It is a compilation of information and instruction on the use of paint and thread, applied to fabric or paper.
