Felted Cuteness is our Calling

Bossy’s Feltworks is three friends/moms/islanders who have felted together since 2006. When we started our business, we were looking to enmesh work life, camaraderie, and a posse of small children under the age of five. Working at the kitchen table, our “Bossy Days” were filled with wool, tea, snacks, and negotiations with frequently unreasonable children. Now, that posse of kiddos are in middle school, high school and college. Our menagerie of animals has grown to include horses and goats amidst the sheep, dogs and various fowl. And the three of us each have a second calling- musician, farmer, teacher. Our studio is the fourth home in our extended family. Luckily, we never entertained the notion that life would get less busy as our children grew!

Over the years Bossy has surprised us in so many ways, bringing us craft shows, farmer’s markets, and workshops and settling us into our own studio just outside of town. The scene is familiar: piles of wool, cups of tea and lots of laughter. Over the years, we’ve reassessed and reconfigured, we’ve delegated and organized... and we keep coming around to this truth: In work and in life there is no place we would rather be, and we are so grateful to be in it together!
