This Fabric Glossary can be continually added to as you find new fibers and fabrics – keeping an updated reference at your finger tips. These boks are a must for fabric designers, interior designers, pattern drafters and anyone interested in fabrics or textiles, this is a three part set, which when purchased becomes all inclusive. It is rare to find any books on textiles where you can actually touch the fabrics, providing a realistic knowledge of specific make-up and texture of the fabrics.
I searched for years to find a book which I could use to give a compressive overview of the textile industry, before I found Ms. Humphries set of books, and I have been using it for the past three years as the foundation of my college course. Please note that in the fall of 2003, the third revision came out and it provides a wealth of information about the new micro-fibers that are found in today’s market.

Fabric Reference includes lists of links to its companion dictionary and swatch book, Fabric Glossary. Review Questions and Investigations for each main section encourage and further the essential application of technical information as study progresses. A unique perspective on textile science is presented by leading the reader from the detailed technical discussion of fibers, yarns, fabric constructions, and finishes covered by all texts to a consistent focus on the actual fabrics. Fabric Reference will continue to serve as a valuable reference—even after a course of study is completed—in almost any area of work involving fabrics. Mary Humphries has nearly sixty years of experience in the textile field, working in industry, communications, and education. Her textbook provides up-to-date information on this fast-moving, highly technical field. Fabric Reference covers all of the elements that go into making a fabric, offering the most-current information in a condensed format, presented in clear language and well-illustrated.
