The title says it all. Tracy shows you how to use these varied techniques to add interest, depth and excitement to your fiber projects. I personally love her coiled and standing wool projects. The instructions are all in the book and I can't wait to get started. But then I flip the page to a shirred project and I am smitten again. And mixed techniques, too. Tracy also includes a gallery of incredible work by other fiber artists. These photos are sure to inspire you. I love this book! -- Karen Larsen, Crow's Foot Farm Designs, LLC
