1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Pictures, but not what I expected... October 26, 2006
I waited months for this book...should have just looked at it at Borders and walked. The pictures are nice, ideas are somewhat "crafty" creative, but it totally lacked the true art of needle felting in my opinion. She used purchase felt in alot of the applications. She has a gallery of nice pics in the back of the book, but I was not inspired. Most of the technique info she used in the book is available on the internet. The author was lucky to have a few contributing artist help her with this book, because her projects were basically elementary. Maybe my expectations were high, but just look at the cover, and it does tell you where this is going. (Live and learn) More yarn and purchased wool felt than start from scratch roving techniques, but someone else might be into that. If you looking for a good needlefelting book using roving and being creative from scratch, look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book! November 12, 2006
I really enjoyed this book. It was well illustrated with color photos and the instructions were very clear. As a novice to this technique it has helped me get started and I will refer back to this book often as I explore this medium. There are lots of really creative and fun ideas that can be adapted to any number of projects. The button project is such fun and will make a wonderful addition to any ready to wear or handmade garment. Needlefelting was the "hot" thing at the Houston Quilt Festival this year and I am glad that I have a head start on learning this fun technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful March 4, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book specifically for the instruction to Tangled Scarf. Now that I have it, I like every single project in the book. I don't think I own a single other craft book that I can say that about. The Plaid Mittens (not very useful in Florida, unfortunately) look like so much fun to make and wear. Maybe I'll make a set and line them for oven mitts. The Fern Pillow is simple, understated and gorgeous.

Right now is the perfect time to try needle felting, with supplies being generally available in craft and sewing stores. This is the book you want to go along with your new supplies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift for daughter January 22, 2014
By Ada
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was a gift for my adult daughter who expressed an idea using this craft. My attraction to this book was the variety of projects, good color examples as well as a good explanation of the basics It was more than a child's introduction to the craft with more sophisticated examples. She was very pleased and I would definitely recommend it

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected; disappointed December 10, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't buy this if you are a novice. Very little instructions on this art at the beginning of the book. many of the projects I thought were in the book were actually just part of a photo gallery in the back of the book. So don't be deceived by this when you "Look Inside." Many "fillers" and out-of-date "kitschy" patterns and a few good patterns. There are some templates in the back of the book that are helpful. All in all I was disappointed. It was not what I thought it would be by looking through the sample pages.

More About the Author

Amy Barickman (, founder and owner of Indygo Junction ( is a leader in the sewing, needle arts and retail crafting industry. She is the author of multiple books including Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions: Any Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Cooking, Sewing, Fashion and Fun, as well as The Magic Pattern Book, which offers 36 unique fashion and accessory patterns - a whole wardrobe in a book!

Amy grew up immersed in the sewing and crafting business, spending hours at her mother's creative arts retail store working and watching the business evolve along with the trends. The seeds of entrepreneurship took root in Amy, and she started her own business designing and marketing collectible teddy bears while still in high school.

After graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in art and design, Amy founded Indygo Junction in 1990 to publish and market sewing books and patterns and to showcase the work of leading designers. Amy's knack for anticipating popular trends has led her to discover more than 45 innovative artists and designers.

Through Indygo Junction, Amy has:
- published over 1000 pattern titles
- sold nearly three million book and pattern titles.
- licensed craft kits and fabric lines
- published over 80 books that have sold at stores throughout the U.S. and internationally.

Amy, an avid collector, has one of the largest archives of vintage fashion and sewing books, images and ephemera in the United States. This vintage collection is inspiration for many of Indygo Junction's modern patterns. Amy's research into sewing history led her to discover her muse, Mary Brooks Picken, the founder of The Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts & Science who was a fashion and sewing authority in the early 20th century. Amy realized she was compelled to share Picken's timeless work with modern audiences.

That dream was brought to fruition when Amy published Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions: An Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Cooking, Sewing, Fashion and Fun. Vintage Notions is a treasury of the best lessons and domestic arts wisdom from Mary and The Woman's Institute, presented monthly with accompanying projects, inspiring essays and recipes.

Recently, via her personal website, Amy has continued to reach out and share her collections. offers the crafting community digital sewing images, labels and books as well as free vintage patterns. Through her blog,, she has continued to share her collections, views on vintage, travels, and projects with the ever-growing community of crafters and sewers that have embraced her work for twenty years.

Amy and her work have received much acclaim in the news media, including on home and fashion shows and in magazines and industry periodicals. Amy had the honor of being named one of Country Living magazine's prestigious Creative Women Entrepreneurs. In addition, Amy has made numerous television
appearances including regular visits to Sewing with Nancy on PBS.

Through her published works, business websites and e-newsletters, Amy inspires countless crafters to explore their own creative spirit and experiment with the newest sewing, fabric and crafting techniques.
