Recycling is one of the hottest new trends in embroidery, and this is the first book on the subject. Covering the techniques of both hand and machine embroidery, it’s packed with ideas for using different types of salvaged material from fabric, paper, dried flowers, and tree bark, to metal waste, plastic, broken jewelry, and
personal souvenirs. Along with the practical instruction, there’s inspiring advice on how recycling can be used to give special creative meaning to a piece of embroidery. The exciting possibilities are illustrated throughout with stunning color photographs of work by some of today’s leading embroiderers.

Val Holmes is a well-known teacher and embroiderer. She lives in Lucon, France, where she runs her very popular residential embroidery courses.From Booklist:
Consider the term embroidery in its broadest sense. French artist (and author of The Machine Embroiderer's Workbook, 1992, and Encyclopedia of Machine Embroidery, 2003) Val Holmes re-creates the 1970s concept of recycling into a host of techniques and ideas and a handful of projects that experienced stitchers will welcome. It's heavy on the ideas, such as dismantling an embellished garment and reassembling it for a more perfect, uniquely decorated fit; or the use of patchwork in inventing items fabricated out of plastics or metal. It also emphasizes a variety of techniques, many taking advantage of miracle materials like Aquabond (a water-soluble fabric with one sticky side) and crystal strands, synthetic fibers that fuse together when ironed. Full-color photographs of finished recyclables enhance the half-dozen projects--a cushion, makeup bag, concertina book--giving needleworkers inspiration that will last a literal lifetime.
