Feature of the Week: April 2

Doesn’t this sushi look good enough to eat?  I was salivating over it all weekend at our DFW Fiber Fest booth.

Unfortunately these are much woolier than actual sushi, but they make an amazing display.  We’re taking names of folks who are interested in a Sushi Needle Felting class, so leave us a comment or give the store a call.  We’ll post back once we’ve got all the details figured out.

Bunny Week: Needle Felt Bunny

How about this little bundle of needle-felted wool?

This project, found in Wool Pets by Laurie Sharp, would be so sweet tucked up in a Spring scene on a mantle or table runner.

Each of the projects in Wool Pets has a series of photos demonstrating the sculpting and shaping steps needed to achieve the animal, which is very helpful to a novice needle-felter like myself.  Although the book has been out for several years, I recently insisted we order it just so I could buy a copy.   Whenever I have a few free hours, I plan on trying a bunny or two of my own.

Needle Felting Classes: Chick and Egg

With the beginning of March here, we have our upcoming Spring needle felting classes on the calendar.  Learn to make this adorable chick to adorn your Spring dinner table along with embellishing a felt egg.  You could even embellish each item with a name to act as a placecard at the table.

We have two different sessions offered – one all-day class or a four-part evening class.

The needle-felting Bear or Bunny class is back on the calendar.  The articulated limbs of these animal sculptures allow them to be posed in a variety of ways. In this class, you can choose which animal you wish to make and Linda J. will guide you through the process.

We are offering two different all day sessions of this class - March 7 or March 28.

We hope to see you there!

Needle Felting Classes

The Woolie Ewe is pleased to welcome back our Needle Felting teacher, Linda J.  Linda is truly skilled in the art of needle felting and creates amazing sculptures. Besides being a talented artist, she is also a fabulous teacher.  In her classes you will learn how to manipulate wool roving into shapes and objects using a barbed needle to felt the roving.

Her most popular class has always been the Felt Bear class.  Taught during the course of one day, each student crafts a unique piece. The Bear can be used as the basis for other animals, including bunnies and pandas.

This little guy is only about 2.5″ in height, making him just right for an all-day craft session. Needle felting is an excellent companion hobby to knitting or crocheting – the technique can be used for embellishing hand knits or creating complimentary piece decorations such as a brooch.
