Patchwork is the joining together of several pieces of material to make a decorative whole. The pieces may be either scraps joined together mosaic fasion, or be applied to a background. No one knows when the first patchwork was made, but it seems that economy played an important part in its origins, and the tradition of economy has persisted throughout its history. In the past few decades there has been a move against mass-produced items and a revival of the desire to create original things. The revival of patchwork has been a natural result. The simplest forms are easy for a beginner to master, and even a first attempt can produce a satisfying feeling that a new and original artefact has been created. In a clear, informative text, accompanied by easy-to-follow diagrams, the author covers all aspects of this infinitely creative and fascinating craft. Helen Fairfield was born in Canada, the granddaughter of a professional embroiderer. She taught art and embroidery in London for twenty years. Now a part-time lecturer, she is the author of three previous books, including "Patchwork for Mosaics" and "Counted Thread Embroidery".
