WhimsicalWoolies' Shop Announcement

Thank you for coming to visit my shop! I am always adding new items to my shop so please stop by often and take a look! I also do several shows throughout the year. My first show is May 3 and 4 at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival at Howard County Fairgrounds between Frederick and Baltimore, MD. I just recently have my work in a local store called Viola Interiors near Donaldson Crossroads, McMurray, PA. It is a lovely store that sits right on Route 19. Tell Susan I sent you! You can also find my work at Koolkat Designs, Mt. Lebanon. Another wonderful store. Owned by Kate and Kate! If you scroll down you will see my complete show schedule. Thank you for coming by!

My first show for 2014 will be the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival on May 3&4,2014 at Howard County Fairgrounds between Frederick, Maryland and Baltimore, MD on Interstate 70. Just recently accepted into the Three Rivers Art Festival in downtown Pittsburgh on June 7 and 8 at the Penn Avenue Extension location. I hope to see many of you at my shows! Please come!

My work leans towards the whimsical hence the name. I like my creations to make me smile after I have designed them and I hope they do the same for you. Please read below and check out my list of shows that I attend.

Everything you see on this site is handmade completely by myself along with help from my daughters, Kristen and Meghan and my wonderful sister, Madeline. Each item pictured on this site is a representation of that item. Each one is created as closely to what you see in that picture as possible.

Thank you for coming and visiting my wooly little store.

I have been in business for over 29 years now under the name of The Ram's Horn Connection. Whimsical Woolies is the name for my Etsy store.
Each piece I design is made from wire as a base and wool as the body. I wrap the wool over the wire to create the main body of each creation and then add needlefelting technique to acquire the features I desire for ears, face, etc. Since the body is made of wire they are POSEABLE!

My work has been featured in several national magazines over the years such as Country Living, Country Home, Traditional Home, Wild Fiber, Domino Magazine and Early American Life and most recently Art Doll Quarterly.

Over the years several pieces of my work have ended up in several museums around the country also.

Thank you so much and enjoy shopping and come back often because I am constantly adding new items!
