I’ve been working with fibre since I learned to knit at nine from my grandmother.

Knitting has been a love of mine for the past thirty years. I’ve dabbled in spinning, felting and dyeing as well.

I picked up needle felting 10 years ago, and have enjoyed working in this medium to create cute and fun animals and eco-friendly products.

I love to teach and have been teaching knitting and felting for the past 15 years. My focus when it comes to fibre is working with local, natural fibres.

Learn to needle felt while creating a sweet gnome.

This course is a great beginners class. Participants will learn the basics of needle felting as well as learn about materials and create 1 gnome in the color of their choice.

Materials are included which include:

  • a foam pad,
  • felting needles,
  • wool and
  • a piece of pipe cleaner.
