Fun with Fabric is Jane Foster's first book, and in it she presents 15 simple projects, using fabulous fabrics from her own collection. With a cheerful primary coloured retro design hardback cover, this is a small but perfectly formed book. It is stuffed full of information about retro and vintage fabric, where to find it and what you can do with it, from the tiniest scrap of fabric, to larger pieces. With vibrant photos, easy to understand instructions, hints, tips and templates for fun projects this would make a lovely present (possibly even for yourself). ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Fun with Fabric Sew, Cut, Print and Stick with Retro and Vintage Fabric by Jane Foster

Jane Foster is one of the UK's most exciting up-and-coming designers. An entirely self-taught illustrator and screen printer, her work is strongly influenced by Scandinavian and British design from the 1950s and 60s. Jane shows you how to sew and stick to create bold, colourful accessories for your home. Whether you are already hoarding stacks of vintage fabric or prefer to buy new reproduction designs, this book is packed with practical and inspirational project ideas. Patchwork cushions, bags and quilts will need some simple sewing skills, while covered notebooks, a noticeboard and pen pots can be achieved with scissors and glue. Jane's fun and easygoing approach to her work shines through in each of the 15 projects. Here's to embracing the retro lifestyle!

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Teresa O'Halloran

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.
