I'm mostly a wet felter. Several years ago I bought an Embellisher by Babylock and played around making all sorts of little pieces. But the more I researched felt, the more I wanted to do larger pieces and to do more traditional felt. I began on my kitchen counter making scarves and small purses but then found The Northeast Feltmakers Guild. They have introduced me to many facets of feltmaking.....traditional and non-traditional.
What a wonderful group this is. I cannot sing their praises enough. We meet approximately 3 times yearly for a felting and feasting. This last weekend was in upstate New York hosted by Sharon Costello of www.blacksheepdesigns.com. Sharon instructed us....more than 20 I might add...on how to make needle felted faces.
We laughed and actually had very few and minor injuries with sharp barbed needles. What fun! This is Diane...
This is Althea...
These little beauties were Linda's and mine before they were finished:
This is Rhea, Harvey and Oliver....when they were finished....I can't tell you what Harvey has on his mind.....but I'll bet it's not legal.....The Guild did a fantastic job in that afternoon .... and here is the group head shot:
Now.....did you notice the majority of this bunch has grey hair????
