Jill Stovall has been an educator, librarian, researcher,
and writer for many years. Jill's love of origami and her
friendship with Florence led her to bring Fabrigami to
completion. When she's not sailing her boat across the world,
Stovall lives in La Jolla, California.
Currently a student at Yale University, Scott Wasserman Stern has been folding origami since he was three years old. He is the author of Outside the Box Origami.
Florence Temko (1921-2009) was the internationally acclaimed author of over fifty how-to crafts books and a leading authority on origami and kirigami. She was a founding board member of Origami USA, a member of the Authors Guild, and a consultant for the Mingei International Museum.
"The difference between this book and the traditional origami book
is that the projects use stiffened fabric instead of paper. It is
definitely more long lasting than using paper, and a great idea for
coordinating your home decor!" -JapaneseSewingBooks blog
"Japanese, "ori" means fold and "gami," paper. The authors craft a new word for the use of fabric as a take on the classic Japanese art of folding paper into delicate shapes. Stovall and Stern, mentored in the art by the late Temko, author of more than 50 DIY craft guides, take the reader from plain fabric to 3D gift with complete instructions from stiffening to making the final folds. With the right fabric of interest, it could be worth the labor to produce a billfold for a dear friend or the classic origami bird of peace for the Yule tree." -PW Daily

"Fabrigami is the art of folding beautiful fabrics to create three-dimensional objects ranging from the practical to the whimsical. Like paper, there are countless beautiful designs to choose from, and, unlike paper, fabric has the virtue of being extremely durable and useful in a wide range of applications. This book presents instructions on how to treat fabric so it holds its shape when folded, then provides a series of fun projects with easy-to-follow diagrams to help you make fabrigami sculptures for a variety of uses." - Sew News
