Spring, summer, autumn and winter – the seasons lead through the book »FilzGeschichten«. Annette introduces many new textile creations combined with text passages and visual instructions that invite the readers to try to felt the creations for themselves.
The focus of this book is on ornaments, surface design with models, felt and embroidery and felted imitations of objects of the nature.
An Advent calendar with 24 different star-shaped objects completes the winter chapter.
»FilzExperiment« and »FilzSpiel« (»the felted play«) have gotten an offspring with »FilzGeschichten«.

Together with her husband, photographer Robert Quentin, she has two children. Her works were presented in numerous international exhibitions; some were bought by a museum for public collections. »FilzSpiel – The Felted Play« (2008) was Annette Quentin-Stolls first gallery book. In 2009 »FilzExperiment« and in 2013 »FilzGeschichten« (Felt Stories) followed. Whereas »The Felted Play« is bilingual in German and English, the other books mentioned are in German only, but the amount of amazing images will speak to those who already have knowledge and experience with felting techniques anyway. In autumn 2017, the next gallery book by the artist couple will be published.
