When your hands are aching because of the embellishments you’ve been adding to a felt painting (or two), you take a break from embellishment to work on other aspects of your felting practice. Today, for me, that means reflecting on the revisions of the website to reflect new work, a new course offering, and a new direction forward.
As I am now relatively settled here in Iowa, I am contemplating Stab & Sip events at a couple of local venues and need to write up a proposal letter and schedule appointments to discuss the possibilities with the owners of these establishments. One is a wine bar and restaurant; the other is a coffee shop. There is a third possibility, a local quilting shop with a retreat area that might work, too. Because no matter how well I get the basement studio set up, and it is progressing, the space really won’t work for having students come to me. It is awkward enough for me to navigate-sort of a donut shape around the furnace and structural elements of the house.
So the question I ask you is this: what projects would you like to learn in a two hour-ish class at a local venue?
Needle Felted Coasters-a set of four that you would get started during the class?
Wet Felted Ornaments-set of two, one of which would be completed during class?
Needle Felted Hoop Art-two design options to needle felt onto a piece of wool to hang in an embroidery hoop?
Learn to Needle Felt with Cookie Cutters-choose from one of my assorted cookie cutters to create felted shapes you can use for ornaments, garlands, etc.?
Do me a favor and send me an email letting me know which of these projects would appeal to you, or, what your ‘something else’ project of choice would be? You can reach me at email@example.com
Thanks friends-have some felty fun today!
