The Cotton Challenge

Threads #179, June/July 2015

When Threads’ contributing editors were challenged to unleash their creative genius on a humble fiber-cotton-the results highlighted their strengths. In this article from Threads #179 (June/July 2015), discover how remarkable design was fashioned with technical creativity.

Louise Cutting celebrates the stitch and elevates it to grand, yet subtle, embellishments for understated elegance. Mary Ray turns to surface design and prints fabric to achieve an organic, textured look. Susan Khalje combines lace with cotton organdy for a fresh, cool style finished with couture touches. Finally, Kenneth D. King uses 1-inch-wide twill tape as fabric and manipulates it into textured sculpture.
