Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“If any book deserves to be called “The Felt Maker’s Bible,” this is it. White, founder of Magpie Designs Felting Studio (www.magpiefelt.com), pours a rich draught of felt-making information into this manual, covering basic felt-making techniques as well as needle, nuno, cobweb, 3-D, and carved techniques and featuring 46 projects. But what makes this a title of lasting value for libraries is the depth of solid information it offers on the craft and its history, on various artists, and on related topics like setting up a felt-making studio, teaching felt making, and leading community felt-making projects. Highly recommended for large public and academic libraries”. – Library Journal, April 15, 2008 (starred)
