Do you know what an Embellisher is? Similar in appearance to a sewing machine, it has no thread, no bobbin, and instead of a single needle, has a number of barbed needles. So what does it do? An embellisher is used to mesh fabric, threads and fibres together to create exciting textile surfaces that can be further enhanced with machine or hand embroidery.
Dale Rollerson is a well known textile artist who, with her husband Ian, owns The Thread Studio, a West Australian institution that has been supplying a huge range of wonderful threads, fibres and supplies to embroiderers and textile artists for many years. Dale has put together this book as a guide to some of the exciting possibilities that can be achieved with this machine. It is full of stimulating ideas and sample pieces, many of which have been further enhanced with simple hand stitches.
This is an excellent book for those wishing to explore the potential of this piece of equipment and extend the possibilities of their embroidery, hand or machine.
