About the Author

Roz Dace & Judy Balchin have had long, successful careers in the craft industry. Roz worked in television and in the media before joining Search Press, where she enjoyed many years as Editorial Director, commissioning practical art and craft books. Now retired, she continues to work with Search Press as a Consultant Editor. Judy is a designer, who has written numerous books and magazine articles on practical crafts, and she has worked as a lettering artist, illustrator and craft demonstrator. She has appeared on DVDs and television and enjoys teaching workshops internationally.

Sisters Roz and Judy have combined their talents and formed a partnership - the Woolly Felters (www.woollyfelters.com). With their love of felting, especially needle felting, they run workshops and give talks sharing their passion and knowledge with others. This is their second book. The first book they wrote together was How to Make Little Needle-Felted Teddy Bears. Both authors live in Kent, UK.


This book offers a comprehensive guide to the tools and techniques needed to dry needle felt. It covers all the basics and the projects build in skill. The instructions come with plenty of colourful and helpful photos. There are templates at the back of the book which are helpful to get sizes right. I am looking forward to trying all the projects.

Having just started Needle Felting I looked forward to receiving this book... and I was not disappointed! The explanations are really clearly illustrated. Really helpful tips and not only gives techniques and advice on 'how' but also equipment needed.
Definitely recommend!

An interesting and informative book with lots of inspiration and a sense of fun. There is a little history of needle felting, a lot of what you need and tutorials with inspirational ideas and templates. There is also a section of help, tips and problem solving. As a fairly new needle felter, I found it a great help with techniques and shaping, also for making cores and larger shapes cheaper and quicker. There are some techniques explained that I didn't know about.
