The library has a wealth of craft books for both beginners and dedicated DIY-ers. Each month, we’ll highlight titles to whet your appetite for a little creativity.

Little Felted Animals, by Marie-Noelle Horvath. Amaze yourself with the lifelike creatures you can craft from a tuft of wool and felting needles. These step-by-step project layouts are easy to follow and good starter projects for those new to felting. The book includes 16 projects – familiar domestic, farm and wild animals that display a real charisma. Library staff thought the Turkish Vann Cat (shown on the book cover) very appealing. Because the projects require sharp felting needles and some patience in the “shaping” of the felted wool, they are more appropriate for teens and adults.
