Boutis - The Nobility of White
Boutis. La Noblesse du Blanc. For 20 years now, Kumiko Nakayama has been illuminating the traditional art of Boutis with exceptional delicacy and expertise, an art for which Marseille and its region were renowned during the 18th and 19th centuries. Travelling back and forth between Japan and France, Kumiko has taught the exquisite history and technique of Boutis to hundreds of students in both countries. In this book, Kumiko Nakayama has carefully hand-drawn all of her diagrams and patterns so as to ensure the finesse that this long-lost art represents. 21 projects of varying difficulties are explained in detail and accompanied with elegant photos - a wedding skirt, lamp shade, purses, baby bib and bonnet, silk cuffs and collar, tablecloth - there is a project for everyone! For those who are curious about learning this gorgeous art, a project specifically geared to beginners is thoughtfully outlined to ensure success. Also included are three diagrams to make tunnels of different widths, depending upon the project you choose to make. Boutis, also known as Provencal quilting, is a specific sewing technique dating back to the 17th-19th centuries, developed mainly in and around Marseilles. Used initially to embellish corsets, baby apparel and bedspreads, Boutis work developed into more elaborate and ornate attire, such as wedding dresses, swaddling clothes, as well as trousseaux and other luxury goods. Patterns are revealed via narrow tunnels that are stuffed with yarn, creating raised areas giving off both shadow and light.

Clover. The Roll & Press is a convenient and quick way to press seams at the sewing machine. Roll to press a seam or fold. Straight, curved, or paper pieced seams.

Perfect for paper-piecing or laminates; also use to seal glued seams on leather and felt.
Violet Craft. The Violet Craft Seam Roller is the perfect tool for all quilters. Used in place of an iron, the rounded barrel places all the pounds of pressure right on the raised seam for a crisp press.
