Filzfun: Felt Magazine from Germany

For those felty fans out there, this is one cool magazine. I am awestruck by the kind of felt that is being made and the creative felt makers that are out there. These artists really make me want to get out of my proverbial felt box. Oh and check out page 28, I am featured! This was a fun magazine to be featured in. They interviewed me via e-mail with certain questions, my answers are pretty much as I wrote them in response, one paragraph follows below...

EXCERPT: It is said that your sources of inspiration
are nature as well
as Asian sensibilities.
Could you tell us more about this?

I can't really say that one thing is more inspiring than another.
I love the full range of all that is nature, and the incredible
variation in color, pattern texture that nature shows us. I also
love the simplicity of Asian design, the Art Deco era. When I look
for inspiration, I use magazines, art reference books, the internet,
dreams, my garden, oh so many things. I keep a visual journal. As
I am a magazine junkie, I tear my favorite things from the many
stacks of mags I buy, and then paste them into a big journal.
This helps me keep the piles growing in my house and studio and
also is a very cool snapshot of things I love at easy reference.

Anyone who wants to purchase a copy, New England Felting Supply carries these and thay also have most back issues. If you want a subscription, you can contact Verfilzt Und Zugennaht through their website
