Carol Cypher, a professional fiber artist focusing on feltmaking and beadwork, is known for her provocative pairing of the two mediums.
Cypher teaches in Australia, Japan and across the U.S.A. Her work is exhibited and widely published in the U.S.A. and Japan.

When asked to write a book on feltmaking for the Japanese publisher Patchwork Tsushin Co., her English manuscript was translated into Japanese by Motoko Natsubori and published October 2008.
She has shared her techniques on PBS, DIY and HGTV television networks in addition to workshops and classes worldwide.
