It is going to be a wonderful summer of exploration all thanks to having spent a week immersed in textiles.
Life has a habit of distracting me but this blog is helping to keep me focused.
These are two books that I have on my Wish List at Book Depository. Hopefully they will arrive for me to devour in January.
Review of Second Skin by India Flint
If you’re into making do and mending, living sustainably, or even just trying to thrift a bit and save money; if you’re creative, love textiles, love beautiful imagery or just love a good, hearty coffee table book; if you’re all or some of the above, then Second Skin by India Flint could be the title to add to your wishlist.
“Almost from the moment of our birth we are wrapped in textiles of one form or another…”
While India’s book at first glance looks like a beautifully rendered reflection of her values, philosophies and thoughts about her place on the planet, it is also surprisingly choc-a-bloc full of hints, tips, tutorials, patterns and suggestions of how you can get more out of your clothes and textiles.
