Announcement   Hello August & September Felt Fans,
Wool is colorful, happy, warm -n- cool. It's ALL NATURAL! Wool is meant for creative people like you & I, because we truly LOVE creating beautiful decorative art that can take a beating! Wool has the ability to breathe.
~ "Balls TO BE" ~ Felt is basically tangled wool! Wool is wonderful because it quickly conducts heat, it repels water, it floats on water, and it is fire retardant. Wool is 100% organic to nature, so it's 100% PURE & NATURAL. Organic materials offer artist like me the ability to create almost anything!
I like to focus on creating perfect 3D circle forms. Balls are cool and my balls will give you endless pleasure. Felt offers you GREAT POTENTIAL in so many aspects of life! The range is so broad I don't even know where to begin.

~ " How I DO IT" ~ I transform high quality carded Merino wool roving into handmade felt by compacting the wool & carefully needle felting 3D shapes. I finish off by " wet-felting" my "needle felt" pieces. This transformation process is called " fulling" which is a steady and controlled rock & roll pressurized hand motion with the help of a hot water sudsy bubble bath & wash. The wool's density thickens to become felt!

Handmade felt has a fantastic because of its soothing body feel on your skin. Do you know that felt is the ONLY SEAMLESS fiber material on this ENTIRE Earth? It's TRUE!
I love color. Color is motivating,meaningful & memorable because it activates people's sensory nervous system. Color is truly addictive! I am promoting color addiction because it's easy on the eyes and mentally stabilizing.

About

Handmade FELT is FUN FUN FUN

Here's my Story!
I live on a blueberry farm with Amish neighbors surrounding me on all 4 sides! My mind is always focusing and thinking about a global perspective towards the arts & culture of humanity. I'll always remember the exciting moment I found out about Etsy back in 2007. It was the only online source that offered wild & wonderful artist like me to the entire world at a modest price and with 100% friendly & trustworthy service!
I've got a wonderful twin sister artist who resides in Stuttgart, Germany. Etsy is big time into the German art movement and I love their global reality. Prior to my twin moving to Germany, we spent 4 years together studying and honing our artistic talents in the historic City Of Brotherly LOVE, downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This important 4 year art college is the ONLY ALL woman's art college in America, and it has a full national level of collegiate accreditation. MCAD college teaches both the fine & professional arts. Moore College of Art & Design offers a mind blowing journey of WHAT art means & WHY art matters & HOW to make it! Our cultural artistic past, present & future is full of BIG meaning and to learn about this is EXCITING! We are all learners for life because we naturally learn as humans do! Learning art makes an artist focus on their studio skills and all of their artistic experiences come together for the future artwork to be made every day!
Felt-making in Europe is 1st CLASS! I enjoy Discovery Learning in Germany and I enjoy taking classes with my twin sister in Germany.
I am a "Hands-On Learner". I excel as an artist & work hard in my studio. It's a challenging life.
One day my friend suggested to me that my colorful & beautiful handmade wet felt supplies would be VERY-VERY desirable for people to enjoy. One of a kind QUALITY supply products are ALWAYS in demand she told me!
Etsy has given me the unique opportunity to connect with others on a global perspective. I now sell my cool handmade supplies to the ENTIRE WORLD! Etsy is a very user-friendly site and this is VERY important!
Every piece is handmade by me. I produce, fabricate & construct each piece using fine Merino wool roving and fleece. There's over 45 amazing solid colors to choose from and I also color-blend solid colors, and infuse raw mulberry silk into the wool as I wet-felt it.
Have a great day shopping on Etsy!

    Art always excites me and I love being creative every day. My twin sister Julie inspired me to begin felting in 2002. Now after 10 years of experience as a feltmaker, I am 100% inspired to keep creating from wool, a fantastic eco friendly material!
