My name is Kay Petal and I Felt Alive
On the heels of recovery from a very rare type of cancer, I stumbled into a little known craft form called needle felting. Back in 2007 not many people had ever heard of needle felting and information and supplies were nearly as hard to find as information on my cancer. I prevailed and found a few felting needles and some wool; my instant obsession was undeniable.
It wasn't long after I started needle felting that I was being asked to demo and to teach. And through online craft groups I started sharing the basics online to help others get started. Soon I was filming little demo videos to show people this magical craft was and that led into full-length video tutorials and my Felt Alive business was born. My name was inspired by a special instructor that shared with me the magic of how the wool will come to life in your hands if you let it. Birgitte Krag Hansen is the woman that literally pioneered this craft and her words "don't kill the wool" are with me to this day. My dolls have a lifelike quality that is hard to capture in any other medium and the joy I get seeing my students discover the same magic as they embark on their own needle felting journies is hard to describe.
With students all around the world learning from my video tutorials, my teaching business has spun off into needle felting supplies as well - my students need quality supplies to make sure they get the most out of their tutorials. Along with my own brand of Felt Alive Needle Felting Wool, I have developed color-coded felting needles to help my students follow along easier. These needles that I call Felt Alive Super Duper Felting Needles have become a very popular and trusted brand of felting needles for professional and novice needle felters around the globe. We now offer amazing double point and quad point needles along with our original single points.
But it turns out that more than my students love Felt Alive wool and supplies; the word about needle felting is getting around fast and I am so humbled that my Felt Alive brand has become a trusted name in needle felting.
While you can make nearly anything you can imagine with needle felting, my own work has been focused on doll-making. That led me to discover that I had a caricature artist lurking in me. My passion for making wool look like real people has opened some very fun doors. I take on a select few custom commissions each year and my dolls are owned by musicians, have been on CD covers, have appeared in magazines and even on television. It's been an amazing journey already and I've only just begun.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my shop - and if you ever want to learn how to Felt Alive... I'm here! With wool, supplies, instructions and inspiration to help get you started on your own needle felting journey.
