First Time Felting, A Book Review

I was recently asked If I would like to review the new book First Time Felting. The Absolute Beginner’s Guild. It is a new book from Quarry Books by Ruth Lane. @QuartoCreates.

This is a great book for those just starting out Needle felting. It is clear and easy to follow with lots of pictures. There is information in equipment and fibres both wool and the extra embellishment fibres. The process of sculpting in 3D using wool is explained using a number of techniques and how to combine them.   I would say two-thirds of the book is dedicated to needle felting and one third to wet and nuno felting. So if you are primarily interested in needle felting but curios about wet felting it is a nice quick introduction to that side of the craft.  Just to wet your curiosity.

 

The Show is Over

The show is over. It was a really good show with lots of people. I was really pleased with how I did. Now a day or two to recover and I have to start thinking of what to make for the next one.

This was my booth. Jan took the picture. I am hoping using the embed link from One drive will work.

I need more than a 10×10 booth but not 10 by 20, so I take two and My friend Bernadette takes half of one.

I sold one of my art pieces. My First Quarter Challenge piece. that made me very happy and sad at the same time. https://feltingandfiberstudio.com/2019/03/27/first-quarter-challange-finished/

So far I am failing at my third-quarter challenge. I hade a couple of ideas and then changed my mind then picked something else and even did a layout but nope, I am not feeling it. It was another planet sort of thing. I have another idea but we will see.

This was the other planet one. The white domes are paper.

 

I wanted to remind people that World Wide Spin in Public Day is coming up, September 21, 2019. Are you Planning to spin with friends or by yourself? Or at a shop or other event? If you have been thinking about trying spinning this would be a great day to do it. I will be at the farmers market with my spindle. Here is a facebook group.
