-Julie Booth, one of the members of The Printed Fabric Bee has written a wonderful book about printing on fabric at home. She uses every thing but the kitchen sink - on second thought, I think she probably uses the kitchen sink!! As a surface designer, I always enjoy looking at books with fresh ideas. I really enjoyed going through Julie's book. It is packed with good information and beautiful photos.-- Gerrie Congdon, Fabric Artist, member The Print and Fabric Bee -Many of the objects used to print are in your kitchen or somewhere in your house. If you are new to printing on fabric, you will find all kinds of different techniques, with pictures and instructions. If you're experienced with fabric printing, you might be surprised at what you didn't know. I found several techniques I plan to try soon.- - Lynda Heines, Author/Speaker/Editor -This book has all sorts of creative ideas for transforming fabric through printing. And yes, those ideas include fruits and vegetable you may have right now in your kitchen.- - Altered Couture magazine -Julie B. Booth is an exceptionally imaginative fiber artist and a well-respected teacher who is making her first inroad into publishing to widen her audience and selflessly share her knowledge. Fiber artists will find themselves challenged to step into their kitchens/studios to experiment with many of Booth's suggestions. Booth encourages the resulting next step for everyone. She invites artists through example to step outside the book and experiment without boundaries. Fabric artists looking for new inspirations and jumping off points will consider this a library staple.- - Trudi Van Dyke, Independent Curator "Julie Booth, one of the members of The Printed Fabric Bee has written a wonderful book about printing on fabric at home.

Julie's clear, conscience and easy to follow instructions give you the confidence and knowledge base to create your own collection of printed fabric. Julie shares what she's learned from her many years of experimentation and teaching. The book is filled with creative but practical solutions to printing fabric in your home space. This book is a "must" for every studio and I encourage you to share the review with all your creative friends!" - Carol R. Eaton - Surface Design Association "Many of the objects used to print are in your kitchen or somewhere in your house.

I've been a fabric artist and surface designer for quite some time so I thought I'd seen everything. What could possibly be new to share? I have to say I'm stunned! Julie Booth has put together an encyclopedia of fabric printing options in the most unique and sophisticated way I've seen in a long time. And the most amazing thing is that they are all done with things you already have at home - carrots (3 ways), cardboard, baking powder, foil (who knew!) and so much more. I loved the section on recycled and repurposed items for printing. Julie has provided thorough instructions, tips and things to watch out for. The photos are large, bright and illustrative. I give this book an A+++. I will use this book again and again for years to come." - Lesley Riley, Author and Former Contributing Editor Cloth Paper Scissors, lesleyriley.com "This book has all sorts of creative ideas for transforming fabric through printing.
