Fabric Glossary offers an illustrated fabric dictionary, with a place for swatches of actual fabric, that fulfills a need that the swatched workbooks on the market do not. It complements more fully the course of study detailed in its companion book, Fabric Reference, by exploring the fascinating and satisfying characteristics of the multitude of fabrics we know by name. Comprehensive lists of fabrics for many end uses are listed, and then, in 115 Files, some 600 names and terms are illustrated and/or explained. Links to these terms have been featured all through Fabric Reference, but having them concentrated in a separate handbook like this makes them infinitely more accessible for close examination while pursuing the course of study; it also makes this book especially valuable for use on the job after that course is finished!Read Less

This book has brief descriptions of nearly every imaginable fabric, grouped by types. I've been using it to save samples from fabric types so I can refer back to it when trying to decipher the suggested fabric types on the back of a pattern package.
