5.0 out of 5 stars absolute eye candy June 12 2010
This book is packed full of beauty and inspiration. Lots of felting, weaving and quilting. Very imaginative stuff, beautiful colors and textures. I have leafed through it quite a few times, and see new things ALL THE TIME!! Like a brand new book every time I open it.
Get it. Don't hesitate, you won't regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1000 Artisan Textiles Nov. 3 2010
The book is beautifully illustrated with clear, full colors photos. Many of the items pictured
are excellent but it seems as though the publisher was desperate to reach the number 1000
and therefore threw in many weak and inconsistent pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful! April 13 2010
By Sue B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the interest of full disclosure I should begin by saying I have two pieces in this book.

The book is divided into 5 sections:
Wearable Art & Couture
Fashion Accessories
Soft Furnishings & Vessels
Tapestries & Display Art
Art Quilts

Each section is filled with one gorgeous image after another. I am impressed with the quality of photographs in this book. The images are clear, bright and in some cases detail shots of the items are included. Each image is labeled with the artists name and a reference number that corresponds to an image directory where the reader can find a brief detailed description of the item. This book is a wonderful compilation of inspiring images and eye candy worthy of a spot on any fiber artists or enthusiasts coffee table where it can be picked up and browsed through again and again.

This is my first review ever but I felt compelled to share how much I love this book. I have a rather large collection of books on fiber art particularly those focusing on art quilting and felting. This is the best I've seen in terms of the vast number of beautiful examples of fiber art. I appreciate the section in the back that identifies each piece and the method/materials used as well as artist info. This is not a "how to" book but a fabulous showcase of many talented fiber artists creating today. Very inspiring!

By whim - Published on Amazon.com
This book is loaded with full-color pictures of faboulous textiles. There is quite a large section on felted fabrics. You will finding clothing, scarves, purses, wall art/quilts, etc. I am just awed by the creativity of the artists featured in this book. I am a quilter and artist and I find this book immensly inspirational.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 2lbs I've gained this year July 5 2010
By Dorothy Higgins - Published on Amazon.com
I stumbled upon this book recently and am thinking I am going to need a bigger purse so I can lug it around with me. Although I am most interested in a particular textile group, I am finding myself attracted to works in every category represented.

It's terrific that they've included websites for each of the artists in the index so you can view more of their work on line too.

5.0 out of 5 stars my best reference book yet April 26 2010
By Laura Heap - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've just received my copy and am delighted with it. While it is divided into sections for different types of textile crafts, I will use each and every page to find inspiration for texture, colour, shape and design. This is not a book of instructions but is visual inspiration. If I can only take one book when I go travelling, this will be it, for I can use the inspiration for any textile craft. Beautiful photos, great material, well set out, I love it.
