"Seriously Soulful! Where do I begin to express how, for me, Beverly Ash Gilbert has gone above and beyond a craft in her new book, Artful Color in Nuno Felt? As a professional graphic designer, I am drawn to what inspires me visually, and with every turn of a page, each new spark of an idea, each new color palette, each project and flair of variation, I felt a mind-altering shift. Each spread is an immersion of color, texture and movement that grabs your eye, and now... the novice crafter inside me is ready to get out my stash of felting supplies and explore! I am proud to have this gorgeous book take center stage on my coffee table!" - JM from Seattle, Washington

Q: When will Artful Color In Nuno Felt be shipped?
A: I expect advanced copies in mid to late February, so to be on the safe side, I am quoting a release date of March 1, 2018. It is possible (fingers crossed) that your book will be shipped prior to that date.

Q:I am a felter, but have never Nuno Felted before. Is it similar? Can I use the same materials?
A: Nuno Felting is an exciting cousin of pure felting and involves merging layers of wool and silk into a richly-textured cloth. Though the technique is simple and will remind you of pure felting, there are some distinct nuances that are required in both the felting and fulling process that may differ from pure felting. Also, though all natural fibers will felt, in Nuno Felting the materials are more limited - the wool fibers need to be small enough to work through the silk.

Q: I have never tried fiber art. Is Nuno Felting a good place to start?
A: Absolutely! Most Nuno Felters in my classes and workshops have never worked with fiber before! Many are beaders and painters or folks who haven't done any artwork before, but are looking for a medium where they can create beautiful pieces in a short period of time.

Q: I can't wear wool against my neck. Are there projects other than scarves and shawls?
A: Yes! I have included many home decor projects such as a wine cozy (great for gifts!), coasters, placemats, table runners and pillow toppers. One of the most popular projects is a purse.
