Review quotes

“Rezendes’s handbook of techniques for making fabric one-of-a-kind is for crafters of all skill levels. Novices will see this and be grateful. Those who have just dipped paint to fabric will be bolstered by the assistance. And experienced fabric designers will have some “ah ha” moments as they build upon their knowledge of painting, stamping, resists, image transfer, marbling, batik, and so much more.” — Publishers Weekly
