About

We tried needle felting and haven't looked back since!

Hello! We are Julie and Michelle, two friends who have always had a passion for buying or making lovely things. Despite careers in nursing and teaching we never lost our interest in being creative, so a few years ago we decided to try our hand at making felt decorations. We loved it, were bitten by the felting bug and have been needle felting at our kitchen tables ever since! We initially started selling in local shops, galleries and Vintage markets eventually branching out to setting up our Facebook page two years ago. We got so many commissions via Facebook we decided to expand to a site we had loved for ages - ETSY!

Needle felting involves repeatedly stabbing carded wool thousands of times with long, barbed needles. Gradually the fibres knit together and become solid, and the wool can be sculpted into shape as you stab. Needle felting can be slightly hazardous if you don't maintain your concentration levels, as the needles used are extremely sharp!

Our initial creations were very simple, but they have evolved enormously over the last few years as a result of our lovely customers’ requests and ideas. We both have particular areas of focus, but we get together regularly to brainstorm new projects. We're always open to a challenge and ready to felt something new! Being able to have fun creating things and making customers happy at the same time is a lovely job!

Thank you so much for visiting our shop!
