Discover how the simplest marks-stitched lines and knots-can be used to create graphically compelling art! In Mark Making , art quilter Helen Parrott, known for her strongly graphic and landscape-inspired textile art, demonstrates how marks can be used in textile work and explains the crossover between stitch and drawing. This fascinating book is divided into the different types of marks or lines that can be made on fabric varying in complexity, arrangement, and "feel."

You'll also learn techniques in both hand and machine stitching, which offer limitless potential for surface effects. Mark Making aims to help you take inspiration from the world around you to create marks, develop your own mark-making skills, and strengthen your personal creative voice! This is an essential book for any textile artist.
