Announcement    I am a professional artist and designer living in a little cream cottage in rural Shropshire, England. Previously a children's illustrator, I became a full time needle felt artist in 2008 when I also opened my Etsy shop. I've sold my work to collectors all over the world and expanded into selling my own kits and high quality supplies. I believe that supplies should be presented beautifully, to enhance the creative experience.
I am now selling all of my creative work in this shop, so if you are looking for quirky, affordable art and cards, please browse the shop sections.
If you like my needle felt designs, you will love my book 'Little Needle Felt Animals, published in the UK by Harper Collins and in the USA by Harper books - you will find it on Amazon and in most major book stores.
I have written over 60 patterns to date and have been featured in many well known craft magazines, including 'Mollie Makes' where my work has been the cover project on three issues. To read more about me and to check for UK needle felt workshops please visit my website

    Professional needle felter

    I originally trained as an illustrator and for many years saw myself as an artist, but in 2008 I picked up a felting needle, made my first little rabbit toy and have not stopped felting since. My toys go to live all over the globe. They have even been featured in children's books, which mix my toy characters with my illustrations - just web search 'Mrs Mouse's Cupcakes' to find online sellers. Now I am concentrating on passing on what I've learned through workshops, kits and my first book. I am a regular contributor to the popular crafting magazines 'Craftseller' and 'Mollie Makes' and to their own range of books 'Mollie Makes Christmas' 'Mollie Makes Feathered Friends' and 'Mollie Makes Weddings'.

    Spring 2014 saw the publication of my first needle felting book, containing 30 patterns, ranging from very easy to more advanced. It's published by Harper Collins and is available both in the UK and the USA. You can find it listed on Amazon, under the title 'Little Needle- Felt Animals' by Gretel Parker isbn 0062300814.

    My prices reflect the many hours and days work put into the pieces, the absolute care I invest in everything I create, as well as reflecting my growing reputation as an professional artist and craftswoman.
