About the Author

Ruth Lane is a self-taught fiber artist who loves to “play” with a wide variety of materials including wool, silk, fabrics, yarns, and threads. Creating one of a kind fiber art pieces to share with the world fulfills her creative passion. She has been a member of the Felting Forum—an online forum of 2500 felt makers from around the world—for four and half years and a moderator for three years. A longtime supporter of fine crafts, Ruth co-owns a fine craft gallery, The Purple Pomegranate, which represents more than 180 American artists whose work includes jewelry, ceramics, metal work, mixed media, woodworking, glass art, fiber art, prints and paintings. Ruth has taught felt making, including basic wet felting, nuno felting, making 3D felt objects using a resist, the use of a power sander in felting and dyeing of wool and other fibers for the use in felting. She writes a blog about felting and other fiber arts at http://ruthsfiberphotos.blogspot.com and has written several tutorials on various felting techniques as well as recurring articles about the elements and principles of design. She lives in Kalispell, Montana.

What a great book, worth every penny. I use this book as reference all of the time. It covers several techniques and shows you step by step how to master the techniques.
I can't say enough on how much this book has helped me with my felting, I especially found the embellishment sections very helpful. Just buy it you won't regret it.
