anyone resist all the gorgeous yarn, fabric, buttons, and beads in this world? I can't.
I love to knit, crochet, sew, and I feel compelled to sew buttons on almost everything!
TextileFusion was born because I couldn't choose just one craft and leave
the others behind.
At first TextileFusion described only my wall
hangings, which incorporate knitting, crochet,
quilting, and embellishment. Since writing and
teaching about textile crafts and art are a
big part of what I do,
TextileFusion grew to include them as well.
Thanks for visiting! After you have a look around, please go to my
blog, where you can read about my current projects and more.
© 2006 by Suzann Thompson. I recycled four different sweaters into
this 24 x 24" quilt. I crocheted the red trim, and sewed, oh, around 250 buttons onto it. Now, why
is this wall hanging called Newspaper Valentine?
My book, Crochet Bouquet
(Lark Books) is available in fabulous bookstores as well as online. You'll find instructions for dozens of good-looking flowers and leaves.
Several projects give you ideas for using crocheted flowers on clothing, accessories, cards, and gifts.
I give you tips for choosing yarn and techniques for improving your finished flowers.
