The rich textile traditions of Central and South America date back to pre-Hispanic Conquest times. This fascinating book looks at both the differences and the similarities between the weaving and textile techniques and traditions of the various Latin American countries, and explores the symbolic meanings of the designs woven into or imprinted onto the cloth. Topics covered include: · Design and production, including the different types of loom and weaving techniques and the various spinning and dyeing methods. · Fibres and threads, yarns and fabric sources. · Manipulated thread crafts, including knitting and crochet, plaiting, knotting and netting, and the Spanish Sol needle-laces. · Embroidery, both hand and machine, as well as the chain-stitch embroidery worked in Peru, the politically inspired embroidery of Arpilleras, and the appliqué pictures of Chile, Peru and Guatemala. · Beadwork, both embroidered and strung. · Finishing, decorative edging and fringing. AUTHOR: For the last twenty years Angela Thompson has travelled the world in search of textiles to add to her collection. Angela has lectured on and tutored a variety of textile subjects in the UK, USA and Australia. She has written numerous articles for embroidery and textile magazines and published a series of textile related books including The Embroiderers' and Quilters' Source Book [2005]. She is a member of the Textile Society, The Spinners & Weavers Guild, The Embroiderers' Guild and The Lace Guild. 200 colour photos
