A FIELD GUIDE TO FABRIC DESIGN
In the "Notions" department of Threads issue #162 (August/September 2012), we featured the book A Field Guide to Fabric Design by Kimberly Kight (Stash Books, 2011). If you've ever wanted to design your own fabric, this is the book for you!

BASIC FABRIC DESIGN
The book is separated into 3 clearly distinct sections, and in each the details and suggestions are clear and exciting. In the first section you'll learn about basic fabric design, with insights directly from fabric artists. You'll also learn how to design repeats by hand or by computer and how to create your own color palette effectively.

WHICH FABRICS WORK BEST?
In the second section you'll discover which fabrics are best for printing and learn the step-by-step techniques necessary to print using block printing, screen printing, or digital printing methods.

DESIGN PROFESSIONALLY OR JUST FOR FUN
In the last section you'll learn helpful ways to make designing easy whether you're simply designing for fun or want to design professionally.

YOU COULD WIN THIS GREAT BOOK!
There's certainly more to designing fabric than you might think, but Kimberly Kight will guide you through the process. If you were to design your own fabric, what would you use it for? Share your comment, and you'll be entered into our giveaway contest. A winner will be randomly selected on Wednesday, October 10, and will be both announced on our website and notified via email during the week of October 17.

Good luck!

user-1148414 user-1148414 writes: I am now trying to use nature items as a tool to print with, as well as standard stencils. I am also working on an original design to use on fabric that can be duplicated onto bolts for possible sales to textile manufacturers. Using things found in nature such as feathers, odd shaped stones, pine cones, variations of leaves, and just odd things found when hiking are inspirations to use for printing. I want to consider my work to be God's Fingerprints in the textile world.

Thid book appears to be what i need to advance to other fabrics for clothing and home decor.

I do hope I am lucky!

For years, I've been interested in creating "souvenir" items for women that are, say, sophisticated enough to be worn to lunch in downtown NYC. I've created designs for scarves, but never had the wherewithal to have them made. I've considered various clothing designs that would require knowledge to create repeat patterns for the fabric. Most (cross that out) all of the fabric is only suitable for kids' clothes and/or clown costumes; I think sophisticated designs are possible and I'd like to be the one to make them.
