Needle Felting


Some of you may remember that we once did a lot with needlefelting. We carried the supplies and some kits. We are no longer stocking needle felting supplies, but we did find this delightful site with instructions on how to needle felt. It includes a u-tube presentation on the process.
If you are intested in needle felting, be sure to check this out.

This is a picture of the needle felted dog shown on the website. This pooch is enough to get me thinking about needle felting again.

We no longer stock all the supplies, but do have some natural (off-white) roving.
Here's the link to the article and u-tube instructional link if you are interested:

One Only!

You may know that for the past couple of weeks, the AZ of Embroidery Stitches 2 books have been flying out of here. We've re-ordered stocks of this book several times, just to fill the orders that have come in after Mary Corbet's review. One of the books that was sent out arrived with some slightly bent corners, so the recipient returned it to us. Now, we have one of these highly sought after books with slightly bent corners. I can't sell it as new, so I'm offering this one copy for just $10 and free media mail shipping to the first person who contacts me. Again, there is just one copy at this great price. I think you'll be surprised at how little damage there actually there is. If you want this book, this is your opportunity! I'll post as soon as it is gone.
