This very popular book is being reprinted and due to popular demand includes detailed instructions of the gorgeous Beagle dog. This is what Francine Denot, for the UK Journal for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, Summer 2009, wrote about the first edition:
“In The Ashford Book of Needle Felting, painter Barbara Allen takes you on a learning journey….you’ll be able to felt small pieces, to decorate clothes with needle felted pictures, to use carded wool (or other fibres) to create wall hangings that look like paintings
and to work in three dimensions as if you were a sculptor. The explanations are precise, specific and deep…Both projects and book are of high artistic quality and the knowledge shared is not just the basics. This book is appropriate for a beginner but will also please someone who wants to explore the craft further and discover that wool can nearly be used as paint or clay.” 120 pages.
