Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen


With hilarious DIY projects, like needlepoint nipple doilies, Hoopla proves that there's a place in every woman's heart (and wardrobe) for some cheeky thread work. —Elle

Prain (co-author of Yarn Bombing) offers out-of-the-ordinary designs, starched with humor. Informative and inspirational interviews with embroiderers prove they don't sew like their grannies. But Grandmother would approve of the practical sections—on history, tools from needles to the humble thimble, types of embroidery, and finishing techniques. —Publishers Weekly

Prain’s examination of the world of alternative, free-form embroidery is both inspiring and educational. Part art book, part guide, it will appeal to crafters who are looking for something beyond the stamped patterns available in big-box craft stores. —Library Journal ("A Best Book of 2011")

Projects don't disappoint, with directions as clear as the designs are funky: handkerchiefs emblazoned with microbes, a modern cuckoo clock stitched on Aida cloth, and knuckle-tattoo church gloves. —Booklist

If you thought embroidery was just for hankies and little girls’ church shirts, you will quickly dispose of such nonsense when you peek into the colorful pages of Hoopla ... the how-to portions of the book are beautifully interwoven with inspired photographs and thoughtful interviews with embroidery renegades whose work is like nothing you’ve ever seen. —Foreword Magazine

Von R. Schönfeld am 10. Dezember 2013
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch bietet einen Überblick über verschiedene Künstler, deren Werke und deren Stil. Das besondere an diesem Buch ist nicht nur der hohe Inspirationsfaktor, sondern auch die mit-gelieferten Vorlagen. So kann man sich anstecken lassen und direkt mitmachen!

Sehr empfehlenswert für alle, die die konventionelle Handarbeit hinter sich lassen wollen!

A huge value - This book is enormous 13. Oktober 2011
Von R. GALE - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I attended a book launch/signing event at Assemble Gallery and Studio in Seattle, WA. I had seen a picture of the cover of Hoopla and was intrigued because I'm obsessed with embroidery. I had no idea how LARGE this book was. The photography is stunning. The projects are interesting. And the artist profiles are inspiring. I have been flipping through it ever since. Can't recommend it enough.

Just plain a wonderful book 13. April 2012
Von Terry Weiss - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I found Hoopla via a website, and ordered it just going by the cover. I was not disappointed. It's a delight of a book. I'm a little worried that hand stitching, which has been devalued for centuries as "women's work" will gain credence only because a number of men have taken it up - but I can't change society. I suspect it's the inclusion of men embroidering (manbroidery is the term) that makes it all of a sudden acceptable as art to the art world at large. However, despite my annoyance at this, I am glad that the joy of stitching unique and uncommon art has become worthy of a good book.

I hate books and reviews that claim: Not your mother's stitchery (or knitting or crochet, etc) because usually that is exactly what that is. There is a crochet book of that name that features patterns straight out of McCalls Needlework and Crafts from the 60s and 70s - and it IS her mother's crochet - and pretty dull crochet at that! Worse, crochet that predates the innovations and exciting work done during the the 1970s and early 1980s, which brought a revolution in all sorts of textile work. These were the first innovations in needlework of all sorts in centuries. I still have many of the textile and stitchery books I got during that period, and find them useful and inspiring to this day. How nice to finally find some new books that bring a fresh look at this ancient craft. Hoopla definitely can hold its own with "Native Funk and Flash" which is still a book that makes you get out some sort of textile device and do something. But, Hoopla can - and does - inspire in the same way those books do.

If you have been thinking of experimenting with stitchery, buy Hoopla and Push Stitchery and you won't come up for air for weeks. I have been keeping both by my chair and pulling them out, opening at random, and getting inspired every day. You will not regret buying this book, IF you are interested in unique ways to do and use embroidery. I can just hear some people gasping "this isn't pretty." That is debatable, but, pretty or not, it's darned exciting!

I should add: this is not a "how-to" - it's a "what we're doing" book. So if you need instruction, find a good old "how-to" stitchery book - and make sure it has "a" "b" "c" "d" and so forth in the directions, showing where the needle comes up and goes down - because otherwise, you'll get lost. Just a word to the wise and potentially discouraged.

Good book spoilt by poor kindle edition 16. September 2012
Von A. Watson-Will - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is an easy-to-read survey of artists using embroidery in contemporary, surprising and at times startling ways. The works shown will delight, amuse and provoke you. I wasn't specifically looking for a book with patterns, and have not tried any, so I cannot comment on them. Personally, I would have preferred some more depth on some of the artists. Additionally, I bought the kindle edition and have to say it was very poorly adapted. Notations for illustrations were out of order and quite confusing. It was necessary to flip backwards and forwards to read descriptions of the work and this definitely reduced reading pleasure. Also, while artists' website addresses were given, about half the time they weren't hot-linked, and in the iPad at least, it isn't possible to copy text from within the kindle app, so this was very annoying. Given the Kindle edition is only a few dollars less than a new copy from Amazon, this really isn't good enough.

A Must Have for Fiber Artists 11. Februar 2012
Von BekahDrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Great book for anyone interested in Fiber Arts. This book is part visual inspiration, part artist interviews and part how-to. I found a few of my favorite artists as well as discovered a whole bunch of new artists.
