From Fiber to Fabric: The Essential Guide to Quiltmaking Textiles. From Fiber to Fabric - Harriet Hargrave. After all my years of teaching quiltmaking, I am still dismayed by what students are instructed to do with their fabrics and what they are not informed about with respect to the care of these wonderful fabrics. Many quilters feel that today’s fabrics are not as good as they were one hundred years ago and that we must put them through a torture test to ensure they will not cause us problems after the quilts are done.

I had no idea all this was involved in the making of fabrics. Such an education I got reading this. My hope is to see an updated version, especially regarding any new fabrics and battings (such as bamboo). One thing I had hoped to see, but was not in the book, is how dyed yarns are woven into fabrics. She only goes into how fabrics are printed after they are woven. At places, I had trouble following the processes she described. She would show line drawings of a process, but then either parts were not referred to in the text or were called a different name. Using consistent names, a line drawing of each process from start to finish would have been nicer. Clearly she enjoyed her private tour of the mill. Nice photos, but sometimes they were hard to orient to. Overall, great job and very informative.

Very interesting book for the quilter to read to understand our fabrics and how they are made. It tells about all the fabric coatings, and chemicals used in the process. Maybe you will want to wash off the chemicals before one uses it. I got it as a kindle book to read. Harriet Hargrave writes many excellent quilting books, so I thought she would be very knowledgeable in this area. If you want to know where your fabric came from and how it is made, or the best fabric for your money, this is the book for you.

There was quite a bit of technical information in here, honestly more than I expected to find. I learned quite a bit from it, but diagram after diagram of the ENTIRE process (all of the equipment, rollers, etc) I quite honestly lost interest in the book. While there is information to be learned from it, I could have done without off of the technical aspects.

Good Book!
A text that includes the basics of the process of making fabric, threads, and batting which enhances ones ability to chose and care for the proper product to produce quality results. The needle, thread, fabric, and batting compatibility charts are extremely helpful in assisting to select the tool for the use intended!
