New Book, New Look

It was an honor to hear that my publisher Quarto Creates was reworking The Complete Photo Guide to Felting into a new book called First Time Felting.

This book is for beginners and concentrates on needle felting techniques but also shows the basics of wet felting and nuno felting. The book is available now.

I am happy to announce that Quarto Creates is providing one free copy of the book as a give away prize here. All you need to do is comment below and you will be entered into a drawing for the book. So please spread the word and share this post to get the word out about this new book.

And the new look? Did you notice that we changed up the look of our website a little? Thanks to Ann and Jan for the new header photo and we’ve changed the background to create a cleaner look. What do you think?

Don’t forget that registration is open now for my online classes. Please check out the online classes in the menu and register today!

    Always love to see these “books for starters” especially with clear illustrations. The more felting I do the more I realise what I’ve to learn … so appre6ciate all the tips. This book sounds wonderful

    The book looks great Ruth. I’ll be reviewing it on my blog in the next couple of weeks, so don’t enter me in the draw, as I already have a copy. 🙂 Just wanted to stop by and say congratulations!

  3. Congratulations on your new book! The more I learn the more I realize that I have so much more I want to know. The world of fiber seems endless with each new book adding another perspective that opens up new avenues to explore. Thanks!

    Congratulations on your updated book. I hope it does well for you. I just retired from my business in the garment industry and love felting. I am very new to it. So much I want to do and learn in the autumn of my life. Love these newsletters in my email. Thank you.

    Congratulations on re-releasing your book! It looks great. So nice to have these resources!
    I am finding that as I move along in my felting, it is often beneficial to look back on basic techniques, especially when problem solving.

    Hope they gave you a new deal and paid you
    It’s a lot cheaper for them to push an old book out again rather than commission anew one
    You also need digital rights as well these days

    Congratulations! I have been slowly gathering items I need to felt and do not have any books on the topic. I have been wanting to make a name badge to wear when I attend classes and meetings. This book would be a great place to start. Hopefully I will be able to add it to my collection. Thanks and I like the new look!
