The Joy of Color by Janine Bajus

If you have taken one of Janine's workshops, you will want this book. And, if you have never had the opportunity to take one of Janine's workshops, but love Fair Isle, you will really want this book!

From one of our favorite instructors, The Joy of Color is Janine's 3-day Design Your Own Fair Isle workshop expanded and in written form. I demystify the design process, walking you through it step-by-step so you can create the design you want: classic, modern, bohemian, folkloric, subdued, bright—whatever you can dream of!

The Joy of Color is divided into 6 chapters:

Getting Started
Color
Motifs
Garment Shapes
Techniques
Getting It Done
The Techniques chapter answers the questions that most often come up in class. This is not a project book (there are no patterns in the book—it’s all about YOU making YOUR OWN designs!), but in the back you will find several blank templates for small projects.

Every chapter includes a workshop section and recommended resources for further exploration along with several case studies of my garments. You can hear from 13 students about how they designed their sweaters using the process outlined in this book.

154 pages, indexed, sewn signature, flexi-bound (flexibinding is a very secure and flexible binding that allows the book to lie flat), reinforced cover paperback.

Ashford Wheels & Looms: All products are drop shipped directly to your shipping address. These products are not available for in-store pickup. Shipping for these products is charged as follows: $10.00 Flat Rate Shipping. $12.00 Dropship Fee, $5.00 surcharge if under order $100.00.

Covid 19 Update: We are shipping your orders as quickly as we can, but please understand that we are working with a limited staff at a slower pace than usual. The same is true for USPS. Right now, shipping can take up to 10 days longer than they're estimating. This is because of a drastic reduction in air travel, as well as a significant decrease in the USPS workforce, all while the demand for items being shipped has increased significantly.
