A guide to transforming found and cherished textiles.

Textile artist Mandy Pattullo shows how to source, refashion and repurpose vintage textiles to create beautiful collages and other unique textile objects. There are ideas for embellishment, stitch and applique as well as tips for transforming material into impressive quilts, bags, books, tablecloths, tapestry panels and wall hangings and much more.

Following the make-do-and-mend and folk art traditions of previous generations, Mandy provides simple instructions for working with a variety of vintage textiles and precious fragments.

There are projects for working with quilts, patchworks, linen, lace, wool and even deconstructing pre-loved garments.

Each project beautifully demonstrates how fabrics and textiles can find a new and repurposed life and will inspire textile artists to incorporate these past beauties into their own work

Description

Textiles Transformed – is Mandy’s second book
“I trained as a Surface Pattern and Textile Designer and now work from an attic studio in a converted manse in rural Northumberland. I run textile workshops throughout the UK and make work to sell and exhibit.
I treasure the old and worn, refashioning vintage textiles into new collages which are embellished with stitch and appliqué. I recycle and reuse very old and often disintegrating materials which have been passed on or discarded. I particularly like to cut up and unpick utility patchworks and quilts made by women in domestic settings. I consciously relate to the thrift and ‘make- do and mend” culture of past times as well as folk art traditions and techniques.My collages, large wall quilts and garments bring together precious fragments to form evocative compositions. The viewer is forced to re-examine fabrics that have become flawed through wear and tear, to find in them a new beauty.

In 2016 I wrote “Textile Collage” which shows how found and cherished textiles can be used to create visually rich and thoughtful collages. “
