Me? Felting? Why YES!!!

So there I was, sitting in a comfy chair by the fire, glass of wine in hand, the "Oscars" on and wanting a little something to do. Enter the New Felting Tools that I brought into the studio recently.

Yes, Felting Tools and I am LOVING THEM!!

Carmi Cimicata will be teaching 2 felting classes at Mixed Minded in May and asked if I would bring in Clover's Needle Felting Tool (5 Needle) and the small Felting Mat. Of course I said YES -- cause I've always wanted to felt and this is a great push in that direction. WELL.... you know me, I had to play with it and NOW I'M HOOKED! Or should I say Needled? Hehe. So, now the studio has the 3D Rose which can also applique hearts:

the Daisy the Florets and Berries
the Snow Crystals
the Pen Tool to use them with
and refill needles, and their claw cleaning tool too!!
Anyone else wanna play? hehe

Carmi will be teaching two very different projects using the basic tools (The Needle Felting Tool and Mat) AND,special thanks to Janome's sponsorship, you will get a chance to try out machine felting too! Wowsers!!!
In the brooch class (Saturday May 28, 6:30pm - 9:30pm) you will learn how to create the basic felt and then how to felt other things into it to create something TRULY SPECIAL!
And the beads (Sunday May 29, 9:30am - 12:30pm) -- well, if not knowing how to create basic felt beads wasn't enough, Carmi will also be showing you how to add fabrics, beads and trims to create something magical to wear and enjoy!

Hope you can join us!!
Have a creative day everyone!
