Description


Using her award-winning art, Cathy Wiggins takes you step by step through the fundamentals of creating with leather on any sewing machine. Whether you work mainly in leather or in cloth, these helpful new techniques give you new direction for your pieces. The techniques are introduced one by one, each building on the skills from the previous chapters. More than 400 photos lead you through leather selection, marking designs, layering for quilting, inlay, applique, staining, hardware installation, and much more. Cathy explains her signature techniques like "thread tooling" for creating the look of tooled leather, and the quilt-before-quilting technique for three-dimensionality and texture. She shares her journey into leather art--it may surprise you --along with the practical info you need for expanding your creative path with leather.
