The Fabric Glossary offers an illustrated fabric dictionary that includes scanned samples and a space for mounting actual swatches. Designed as a complement to the Fabric Reference, this book explores the characteristics of the multitude of fabrics we know by name. Fabrics are grouped in “Files” of like materials and over 600 names and terms are illustrated and/or explained. Topics include major fiber types, most kinds of yarns, all categories of weaves, knits and other constructions such as tufted, lace, felt, nonwoven, and stitchbonded. Also covered are effects of finishing, including examples related to dyeing, printing, and other applied design.

The Seller Josie Jones sent me a terrible photocopy of this book. It was horrible and a total waste of money. It is on poor quality paper and the swatches are a joke. NEVER buy from her.

The book itself is more for students also who want a profession on textiles. Total overkill for what it is.
this is an excellent reference book for those working with textiles. It is made better by the (separate) purchase of the swatches that can be inserted throughout the book.
This fabric glossary is very thorough and understandable in giving the definiitions of textile fabrics as we know them in today's markets. This is a textbook used in Textiles classes and is highly recommended.
I received this book in a timely manner and it's in great condition. thanks.
I was a little disappointed that all of the pictures were blackand white. In order for this book to be useful to me, I would have topay [approx. $20.] plus shipping and handling to get the actual swatches used in this reference book.
The text seemed to be very thorough and all fabric types are covered. For the price, I would have expected color photos of the swatches since it is difficult to judge texture from black and white. If you don't mind investing [more money] for the swatches, you'll be happy with this book.
Fantastic book! One that is extremely useful and one that I take everywhere with me. Perfect for new designers acquiring fabric sense. I know several firms where this book is a staple reference guide. A+++++
I bought this book for a Textile class I was taking. It's a good book, and has lots of information in it. Although it is only useful if you have the sample swatches to glue on each page so that you can see and feel the fabrics. I will keep this book as a great "reference book" for future use.
It has places to attach sample of fabric so you can feel, touch, and learn about them. It is organized alphabetically which is nice if you know what fabric you are looking for. It should have an extra source to look up by the weave of fabric.
