A little bit about me

My interest in needle felting began several years ago when I created my first little lamb using wool from our own sheep. I had quite a supply of our wool, which I initially planned to spin, knit and weave. But as a full time art teacher there never seemed to be enough time. So a few years ago I retired from teaching to spend more time on my own creative projects.

After I began felting, I found the process of taking a fluff of wool and creating a little creature from it most rewarding. Soon I had an assortment of animals overrunning my work area. Family and friends encouraged me to figure out a way to sell them and Etsy seemed like the perfect solution.

We moved to our small farm here in central Pennsylvania more than twenty years ago and our first three lambs arrived which we named Wynken, Blynken & Nod from the children's poem by Eugene Field. Over the years we've had up to seven sheep at a time and while sadly not all of them are still with us we have saved wool from all of them.

Our current flock consists of two Border Leicesters which have a nice soft wool that has been excellent for my needle felting, and one Barbados Black Belly sheep which are a hair rather than a wool breed. The wool is washed and carded before I begin felting.

I have always had a love of animals of all kinds and that is where I find my inspiration. I hope you enjoy them and thank you so much for visiting.

Thank you for visiting my shop. I hope you enjoy my creations which are all my own original designs. All sculptures are made from wool from our own sheep that we have raised over the past twenty-five years. We have a variety of natural colored wool but from time to time I may add additional purchased wool fibers.

Each sculpture is created individually one at a time, so while I often create similar figures each will have unique expressions, coloring and size. I generally do not accept custom requests but if you don't see a figure currently listed that was available before, please ask and I may be able to reproduce it for you.
