E-Book Giveaway

I haven’t done a Giveaway for a long time, so I thought the festive/holiday season is a good time to do another one! So this week, I’m doing a giveaway of my e-book, The Right Fibre.

It isn’t a project based book – I don’t tell you how I think you should use fibres, it’s an objective look at them. I profile 20 different embellishment fibres, and show lots of photos of how they look after felting in various ways, so it’s easy to compare them with each other and see similarities and differences.

There is also a section detailing various things which affect the way a fibre will felt and look after felting, so by the end you have the information you need to choose the right fibre and give you more control over the outcome.

For more information, have a look at the full blurb on my blog. To win a free copy of The Right Fibre, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. If you’d like to spread the word through your blog or facebook etc, it would be very much appreciated but it isn’t a requirement. I will randomly draw the winner 8 days from now on Monday 31st Dec 2018, so please check back to see if you’ve won. Good Luck!

EDIT: SORRY! I completely forgot to link to the blurb on my blog! Thanks Ann 🙂

  29. Deb Denzer says:

    What a great tool you have created! I have a binder of different sheep fibers I have felted into squares as a tool to know how they behave and look after being wet felted. I love to use these type of tools while wet felting as they minimize experimenting and expense. Happy holidays to all!

  30. Musetta says:

    I’m a bit of a newbie only having made several cobweb lace scarves and an experimental piece with raw alpaca fiber; no doubt your book would be helpful. Very kind of you to share through a drawing.

    I could most likely benefit from the info in this book. Thanks for the opportunity to win

  47. Lisa Hayes says:

    What a generous offer of a great resource for felters. Thank you for the chance to participate.

  48. i am new to wet felting and find these posts very inspiring. i am fascinated by the unending approaches to this age old material. thanks for sharing!!!

  49. This sounds like a very interesting book. I tend to use a local fibre as my base for all my felting but I’m often at a loss when choosing embellishments because I simply don’t know how they’re going to react/look when it’s finished.

  50. This would make a wonderful addition to any feltmakers library.

  51. Patti says:

    Thank for the lovely gesture! Love this information, I’m a felter for a little while now, but cannot afford to experiment with other fibres, so this information will be most welcome!

    • zedster66 says:

      Thanks, Patti 🙂
      Yeah, cost can be a big factor when choosing fibres, luckily a lot of them are very cheap, and they can go a long way depending how you use them. I’m still using Tussah Silk which I bought 100g of about 9 years ago!

  52. Robyn Smith says:

    Yes Please, Merry Christmas

  53. Karen Lane says:

    This looks like a great resource book Ruth! Fingers crossed I might be a winner! Have a wonderful Christmas.

  54. What a wonderful resource! Thanks for an opportunity to win the book.

  55. Beth says:

    Your website is a mine of info- thanks for this opportunity! And happy Christmas. 😊

  56. The book looks very useful. Hope I’m the lucky person!

  57. This book looks like it would be very helpful to avoid a lot of trial and error. I’ve been felting Hanji paper using the Korean joomchi technique, and now I’m interested in felting wool and other fibers to incorporate into mixed media pieces and art quilts. Thanks for offering the book—Hope I win it!

  58. Michelle J says:

    Sounds like a fabulous resource!
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  59. This sounds fantastic, I’d love to read your book.

  60. Shelley Powell says:

    This ebook would be invaluable for me, finger’s crossed. Merry Christmas.

  61. It would be brilliant to win your book. Whilst my random wool selections are mostly fun, it would save me so much time and frustration to ‘know’ which fibres are best for each project. Thanks for the opportunity xx

  62. Janet Morton says:

    Thank you for your kind offer to win this book. The information sounds a valuable resource. Seasons greetings. Xj

  63. Antje says:

    Hi Ann, what a fabulous reference book for all of us interested in felting. Would you consider publishing it in paper format? I do look at e-books but find I love to hold such great info in my hand….it makes it alive in my fingers somehow. All that said i’d Be delighted if I were to be the winner. I’m glad you’ve had so many comments and interest in your book.

    • zedster66 says:

      Hi Antje, it’s Zed not Ann 🙂
      I did look into publishing hard copy versions, but they’re just not really cost effective. Saying that, once someone owns a copy of the e-book, if they want to use it to oder a hard copy/printed version they are more than welcome to. I got myself a copy of Beyond Nuno, and it cost about £12, at the time, I think.
      The other reason I never really did hard copies is that I tried to get a lot of close-up details in my e-books, using supermacro photos, so you can zoom in like 300% and get lots of info, and all that is lost on paper.

  64. I would love to get the e book for free, please pick me😂😄🤶🏻

  65. hmacwenz says:

    I would love your beautiful book. Thank you for this great offer. Xx

  66. Linda Thomson says:

    I would love to win this 🙂 it looks very informative, fingers crossed
