Reprint. Originally published: 2007.

An inspirational and practical guide to the potential of heat tools for textile artists.

Soldering irons, heat guns and household irons can add texture and variety to textile work - whether it's hand embroidery, machine embroidery, quilting or felting. Stunning work can be produced with a variety of materials: hot and cold foiling; painted and plain Bondaweb (fusible webbing) on wood, paper, fabric and pelmet Vilene; making beads from synthetic fabrics, Tyvek and Kunin felt; melting and distorting plastic bags and cellophane; working in three dimensions; and embossing powders.

With step-by-step instructions, full health and safety advice and stunning photography, this is an important book for all textile artists.

Following on the bestselling Fusing Fabric and Surfaces for Stitch, it demonstrates the latest techniques wanted by all those involved in textiles. Back in paperback for 2018.
