I have several needle felting books but were I to have only one this would be it. Excellent pictures, great detail, fun projects, and super informative. Best I've seen.
Put needle felting equipment in the hands of two experienced designers and this is the result. This book makes the craft accessible even for those who've been hesitant to try it. Choose hand felting for small projects or machine felting for larger canvases; either way, there's something here for you.
This a great book for the non felt artist to give some ideas on how to use a felting needle/machine. how ever, i have been an wet felter for 10 years now and although i am new to needle felt, i still felt ( sorry) that this book was too basic for me. or maybe not as creative as i thought. Lots of great colour photos.
The book is well done, although most of the projects are not to my taste, or anything I'd want. (Why make something with hand-made felt that looks like you bought cheap discount store felt for the project?) There were a few excellent examples of work from felt artists - that didn't tell how they got the effect. If the projects with detailed directions were more interesting, I'd have given it five stars.
This is a wonderful book on felting. It has an explanation of terms used in felting, teaches about every phase of felting including what kinds of fabrics and fibers you can use and which are best and why. Great pictures, explains everything and has a good resourse section. It is one of the best book I have read so far, of the many books I have bought on the subject. SHe has info that many autors have left out. The only thing wrong with it is that facts about machines have changed since she wrote it. Before anyone buys a machine they should check to see what features they have as there have been upgrades. Many wonderful pictures to give you ideas. This was written by David's wife, not David.
I liked this book as it gave a good overview of the various felting processes. I just bought a Babylock embellisher and felt this book was a good resource as well as having interesting and varied projects. Bought another copy for a friend who just started to do needle felting. She loved it.
I'm very finicky when it comes to buying books for my creative side. This book is a winner. I own a felting machine, so this book will be a great addition to my library.
this book helped me learn about felting immensely. it is written in layman's terms and had tons of pictures as well as good information. i would recommend it to anyone interested in needle felting!
