Question on fabric books

lbmdb's picture

Hi all!


I'm trying to decide between Laurie Parker's 3 books on fabric, All About Cotton, All About Wool, and All About Silk, and Joseph Pizzuto's 3 books on fabric, Fabric Science, and Fabric Science: Swatch Kit.  I know both contain swatches of the fabrics discussed, but I was wondering if they had other info, like use and care.  Does anyone have any experience with either of these series?

Hi, I have never heard of Joseph Pizzuto. Where can I read about his books, are they from FIT or Fairchild?

Hi!


They're from Fairchild.  I never even thought to check the 'net for Fairchild.  I'm off to do that--thanks for the idea!

Thanks Linda. I went over to check but it seems the site is either under construction or no longer functioning. It used to be you could look at and read about the books. I'll write and request a catalogue.

That's very nice of you!  There was a contact page on the site, and I sent an email to someone in Customer Service to ask for information about the book.  We'll see--I'm sure she's not at work on a Sunday (at least I hope not for her sake!!).  Thanks for the interest you've taken in my quest!  The community on this site are so nice.  This site was really my first experience of being surrounded by people with my same passion!
