SOURCES
Intro Edges are the beginning and the end. They define a work like no other detail. We think of ruffles as feminine. Pleats are more tailored. Bands are flat and extend the importance of an edge. Cording interrupts an edge with decoration or finishes it durably. And despite the current trend of leaving edges raw, most projects are hemmed in some way. Edges are everywhere.

Corners, of course, are part of an edge, the connecting point that brings edges together. They typically require some special manipulations -- a miter, some ease, or a knot -- to assemble them correctly.

Skills are needed to invent and produce good edges. Because they are so often contrasting or decorative, they need to be done well or they ruin a project or make them look homemade. They take practice and patience, but the results are worth it. And there is no better time to start than now. This book is designed to store in your library of references and bring out to research some ideas. Most of these techniques are universal and can be applied to fashion sewing, home decorating, and craft and quilt projects. When you are stumped about how to end something, unsure about the best solution for your fabric or application, or ready to try a new approach, I hope you will pick up this book, find what you need, and go to it.
