More About the Author

Everyone agrees I make a mean quiche. People consistently seem to think I'm athletic and health-conscious, when in reality I'm neither. I despise the taste of fish. The weirdest thing I've eaten---to the American palette, at least---is kangaroo (delish!). Morocco and Vietnam top my list of place I'd like to visit. I adore roller coasters, but am always terrified before my first trip down one---just the anticipation of that heart-stopping pull up the first hill, chains clanking away in a sickening fashion---aagh, I'm trapped! Why did I choose to go on this ride?! The cars will jump the track and I'll be turned to burger!---makes my knees go weak.
I think dozing off in bed with a book on a rainy afternoon is about the most pleasant activity there is.

Get those creative juices flowing!
Sara Fultz
The latter part of the book covers accessories, and art installations in which felt is combined with metal, ceramic and other hard surfaces.
J. M. Arden
This is a beautiful, inspiring book for fiber artists.

This arrived yesterday and I spent the evening pouring over each page. It is fabulous! Wished there were photos of Carol Cypher's work in it, but enjoyed everyone else's felt interpretations. Awesome woolen eye candy and worth every cent!

A gallery of pictures of amazing garments, hats sculptures made of felt, by amazing artists. It is not a 'how to ' book, but an inspiring insight into what can be done in this incredible fabric.

What a gorgeous book! It is amazing, with so many incredible examples of felt fiber art, it takes my breath away.

The juror for this book was Susan Brown, associate curator of textiles at the Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York City. Brown was curator of the 2009 exhibit, Fashioning Felt, which was a spectacular assemblage of felt art.

The diverse objects run the gamut from garments to sculptural forms to home decor, with many stops in additional categories along the way. With so many diverse objects pictured, the layout of the book must have been a wonderful challenge. Art Director Matt Shay's thoughtful choices make the book a lovely pleasure to behold. You'll have to pick up the book for yourself to see how beautifully put together it is.

Full Disclosure: I am really, truly honored to be included in this international group of fiber artists ... on page 248. :)

I have been wet felting for 12 yrs and have had my eyes opened by the fantastically beautiful items in this book. It is truly a revelation. Anyone who understands how felt is made will enjoy this book, in fact you can't live without it. I keep it by me and thumb through it every time I sit.
I especially like the jkts and the beautiful green holey vest. Wonderful. Thank you reviewers you gave me a good guide to buy this book. My heartfelt congratulations to the feltmakers.

Nowhere is it stated that this is NOT a How-To Book... just a picture book... nice pictures though! But don't expect to learn how to felt.
