Read full description of the books:
Knot Thread Stitch presents a modern, experimental, and creative approach to thread and embroidery projects. You'll find fun and surprising project ideas, a unique artistic approach, and uncoventional mixed-media materials such as stamps, paint, sequins, paper, and shrinky dinks. These projects are designed to be quick, fun, abstract, and creative, and many offer clever ideas for personal customization. With easy-to-follow steps and project variations, this book also includes project contributions and embroidery patterns from a long and stellar list of renowned artists and bloggers, including Lisa Congdon, Camilla Engman, Heather Smith Jones, and Amy Karol, just to name a few.

Read information about the authorLisa Solomon was born in Tucson, Arizona, but has lived most of her life in California. She received her BA in Art Practice from UC Berkeley in 1995 and her MFA from Mills College in 2003. She regularly teaches art at various colleges in the Bay Area including San Francisco State University, UC Berkeley, Mills College, CCA, and Cal State East Bay.
Profoundly interested in the idea of hybridization (sparked from her hapa heritage), Solomon’s mixed media works revolve thematically around domesticity, craft, and masculine and feminine triggers. She is drawn to found objects altering them conceptually so that their meanings and original uses or intents are re-purposed. She often fuses “wrong” things together – recontextualizing their original purposes, and incorporating materials that question the line between art and craft.
Ms. Solomon’s work has been featured in many books, and her drawings and installations have been featured in numerous national and international venues. She currently resides in Oakland with her husband, daughter, two dogs, two cats and many, many spools of thread.
