Two more felting workshops coming up at Unwind on Main Street here in beautiful Newmarket , January 30 and March 5.  You will learn basic flat felting in the morning and then 3 dimensional in the afternoon.  Contact Unwind to register though if you need any information don’t hesitate to contact me.  Look forward to doing some felting together!!

Always something new when you do a workshop!!!

Another bad weather day so an intimate workshop with Cate and Elena.


This is Elena’s first piece before felting


This is it felted – possibly a cushion cover?


Here is Cate’s felted piece


She thinks she’ll make it into a clutch purse – look at that wonderful edge!


For the second project in the afternoon, Elena made a tea cozy and Cate made a hat for a friend’s little one (have to wait for the felt to dry to fold up the brim)


It was a delightfully creative time in the midst of a very snowy day.  Thanks ladies!

Where have I been hiding for so long?

I am a poor blogger at the best of times and there has been so much happening since my last post.  I’ve had to be creating things instead of writing about them!  And I have a new studio.  I had my first workshop in Feb. with Grace and Kathy making nuno felted scarves.  It was so nice and relaxed especially having everything at your fingertips!

Workshop at Unwind Yarn House in November

Had another wonderful day teaching people the magic of wet felting at Unwind Yarn House on Main Street, Newmarket, ON.  Here are some photos of our time.

Finished 3 dimensional pieces drying.  From the left, a french press cover, a baby hat (too wet to roll the brim up) and a tea cozy.

Thanks ladies for an inspiring and fun day!

Two posts on one day!! Have to make up for lost time and tell you about my workshop

I have another felting workshop arranged at Unwind Yarn House,  on our wonderful Main Street in Newmarket, April 14.  The morning session will be for beginners and the afternoon session will be to explore three dimensional felting.  Check out Wendy’s site for this and other wonderful workshops.

We’ll make this in the morning
