Sheila Smith's latest book covers the new dry-felting techniques using hand-held needles and the hugely popular new embellisher machines. These mess-free techniques open up a range of felt ideas for textile artists. The book includes the use of commercial ready-made needle-punch felt for fashion and design work. And of course, it provides a range of decorative stitching and dyeing methods that can be used to embellish the felt. Colourfully illustrated with inspirational textiles, plus clear step-by-step instructions, the book covers:

Laying the Foundations: Use a variety of fibres and fabrics to create exciting cloths that are both beautiful and versatile. These can be layered further - experiment with Bondaweb, Pelmet Vilene and Lutradur - or developed into bags, book covers and other stunning items.Building Texture: Use fast and simple techniques to create impressive effects with the needle punch, from incorporating tucks, folds and tubes to three-dimensional bowls and vessels.Colour and Dyeing: Step-by-step instructions on rapid and space dyeing make it easy to create and assemble beautiful colours to use in your own work.An overview of all the equipment and materials needed, plus an appendix explaining traditional wet-felting techniques
