My first needle felting experience was at a parent-night at our daughter’s forest group.
It started with brown wool, two needles (because my first one broke pretty quickly) and a piece of foam. What I took home, somewhat resembled a spring bunny - hardly felted at all, quite squishy and lop-shaped. My daughter was delighted and I was hooked.
With in a month I had purchased a couple of pounds of wool, a large supply of needles (I was learning quickly) and two different underlays. As in all things I do, I had researched hours on the internet, bought a couple of books and even invited a friend to tutor me.
Today my passion has turned into my carrier and I enjoy the opportunity I have been given to own an online store, write on a blog and educate other fellow crafters and nature lovers!
During my years of experimenting and growing my skill of needle felting I had been constantly discovering new terms, tools and techniques.
