2011 Workshop Schedule coming soon!

Happy New Year to my Felting Friends around the globe, I am tightening up my 2011 Felting Schedule, and would love to hear back from those of you who are looking for a specific class this coming year, what class would you like to take?  I am trying my hand at internet video classes and am doing a private class in January.  As we work on this project, and I better understand how the technology works, I would love to offer on-line courses as a regular part of my course work, please feel free to leave me comments here or e-mail directly at

My Intern's project continues...

As young Miss Chloe Walier finishes her internship for HS credit, her final project is about a day away from completion.  Her next step once the design, which is a cape, is dry will be a photo shoot, which she will up-load onto Facebook.  This whole project was initially for Chloe to learn how to make felt, but as the days grew, we adapted an approved course for her to get a Tech credit for HS.  The Tech part is documenting the journey, and communicating it through on-line, multi media.  I have been posting photos on my Festive Fibers page on Facebook, and a few here, but if you are able to, her on-line Final Review is Jan. 2, all day on her personal page, the invite is this link

I have been privileged to mentor her though this part of her journey, and am impressed with our regional HS that creates such opportunities for alternative learning.  Here Here Fall Mountain Regional HS!

If you are not on my Festive Fibers page on Facebook yet, check it out.

This last photo is showing us removing the resist inside the cape, we left the hood resist is a bit longer....more pictures to come!

Festive Fibers at a Local Crafts Fair

Hi All, I am excited to be in a local craft fair this coming weekend run by a small and beautiful preschool called The Orchard School.  The show is being held in the Walpole Town Hall in Walpole, NH this Saturday 9:30 - 4:00.  I am looking forward to participating in this event, and hope I see a few of you there.  I'll be showing my scarves and other small felted gift items.  If you can't shop there in person, have fun shopping virtually in my Etsy Shop

Shop Festive Fibers virtually this year

Couldn't make it to the Studio Sale?  I have been putting the delicious colorful felt Scarves up on line in my Festive Fibers Etsy Shop.  What is Esty?  It is a place where you can visit, shop and make purchases for your holiday gift giving, it's pretty cool.  If you haven't visited my shop yet, try it.  Purchases can be made using most charge cards as well as Paypal.  So as you visit my Etsy shop imagine you have driven to rural and beautiful South Western New Hampshire, as everyone came into my studio this year they noticed the crazy purple berries on the bushes next to my drive in front of the studio, a bush called Beauty Berry.  Well if my purple berries can wow people, then come on in!
I had nice music playing, yes holiday music, my favorite is On-Line streaming so I listen to so much, and I love AOL Radio, so had their Christmas Jazz Station playing, with a pot of mulled apple cider going in the crock pot.  Have fun and I hope to see you on Etsy.
