There is also guidance on stitching both by hand and machine as well as how to use colour and introduce texture in the form of different fibres and threads. There are numerous examples of Moy’s work throughout the book, evoking the dramatic scenery of the Scottish Borders where she lives and works, providing further stimulation for your own gorgeous felt paintings.
