About

Inspiring needle felting kits for beginners onward. Each kit contains all you need to get you started on your creative journey...

Is needle felting for you? Well of course it is but if you're not sure then here are a few words of encouragement:
Do you want to try a wonderfully addictive new craft that has no limits, from absolute beginners to advanced crafters?
Are you yearning to unlock your creativity and be inspired. Do you enjoy a laid-back approach to crafts (like myself)?
Does the thought of sewing fill you with dread but you want to be creative and don’t think you can be?
Do you want time to yourself, away from the noise of daily life and routine, where you can completely immerse yourself in something creative?
If your answer was yes to any of the above then needle felting is for you!

Visit my award winning needle felting blog for lots of tutorials and general needle felting advice hints and tips: www.lincolnshirefenncraftsblog.com

The positive reasons for taking up a craft are endless but what is all the fuss about needle felting?
The reason why needle felting has taken the crafting world by storm is you need just one thing, enthusiasm!
No tricky patterns. No sewing. No wires. No expensive fancy equipment.
You don’t have to be artistic or even creative and all you need is enthusiasm and a little time.
It is incredibly portable, light and requires very little space; just a needle felting kit of your own or, a stash of wool, foam pad, a felting needle and you are good to go.
And yes, you heard right, no sewing which was a huge draw for me; I don’t mind a bit of basic sewing but I leave the rest up to the experts (of which there are many talented ones on Etsy), and those who have oodles of patience, which I definitely do not!
Whilst I have always loved arts and crafts there was never one that really grabbed hold of me the way needle felting did. Once I discovered it 5 years ago I have never looked back!
With my new-found addiction, and a yearning to share this fabulously addictive craft, I set about designing needle felting kits for absolute beginners and one or two for those with a little more experience. I currently have 19 characters to choose from so there really is something for everyone.
I have a real love of making hares, Robins and mice so you will find them in my needle felting kits as well as my ready made creations.

Award Winning Needle Felting Kits
Every single kit is of the highest quality and has all you need to create each character including; detailed, written instructions accompanied by full colour photographs showing each animal, bird or character being made step by addictive step. All you have to do is open the box and get started. Each A4 box is beautifully designed making it a perfect gift for your crafty friends and loved ones…

My Hideaway
I can be found most days in my home studio in rural Lincolnshire where all Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts needle felting kits and creations are designed and put together by myself, with a little help from my family. Although it must be said that my daughter only works for bribes! No unicorns and fairy helpers I’m afraid, just lots of Yorkshire tea!

My materials
British wool is used in most of my kits and is of the highest quality and primarily natural, undyed, and sourced locally from several family run businesses. At Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts we don’t outsource, and the small amount of Merino wool I use is ethically sourced from non mulesed sheep by my British suppliers. Wherever possible, I use recycled materials and packaging have an Organic hare needle felting kit which is fully GOTS certified.
Any British dyed wool in the kits is usually Shetland and I don't use bleached wool.

And finally, almost...
I really do believe that arts and crafts in any form, from jigsaws to flower arranging, have the ability to ease and focus the mind, and sometimes the body. Sometime lifes ups and downs are draining; crafts can offer us a simple escape
#craftsastherapy

I have worked very hard to create and maintain a successful business I am proud of my customer service which continues with many of my customers long after they have purchased their first felting kit
I am always on hand for any 'woolly' advice and have a monthly customer gallery on my website, blog and Facebook page to show off all your lovely projects.
I ship worldwide so no one feels left out.
Workshops are held throughout the year between March and November.

Best Advice!!!
Don’t strive for perfection at first attempt and embrace the happy accidents. Instead, strive for enjoyment, a sense of achievement and the rest will follow. Don’t let fear of failure (you know, the stuff we were taught in school that has stuck ever since) hold you back.
The only thing guaranteed is that we will always fail 100% of the things we don’t try!

Thanks for reading and happy felting

Open the box and get started...
All you need to add is a little patience and enthusiasm

Do you sell wool and accessories?

Yes. I sell a range of wool and accessories in the shop which can be purchased individually or as bundles; all wool that I have tried, tested and love working with. Please ask if you want more details. Any Merino is ethically sourced from non mulesed sheep.
If you want something more specific please message me and we can discuss your requirements and make it a custom order.

Do you support local and ethical business?

Absolutely! My wools - of which 95% are from British breeds - are sourced locally from a family run business.
The small amount of Merino wool I use is ethically sourced, non mulesed sheep from South America, by my British wool suppliers. Wherever possible I use recycled material, packaging and minimal plastic. I have also introduced an Organic needle felting kit consisting of: Organic Merino, flax linen and wild Tussah Silk.

Do you make/produce everything yourself?

Yes! Every item and needle felting kit is produced, designed, made and put together by me at my home studio. I weigh, I bag, I print, I stick, I drink Yorkshire tea... You get the idea: no outsourcing whatsoever.
Cards and mugs with my original designs are produced by two excellent British printing companies.

Can I sell the animals I make from the kit?

Yes. Once you have made your animal it is yours to do with as you wish as long as Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts is given credit for the design/idea. However, you may not copy and sell/promote the kit and instructions as your own, share them or use for workshops. This would be viewed as copyright infringement.
