Fantasy Trees Textile Wall Hanging

Pat has been working on this wall hanging on and
off between other projects since the beginning of
the year. There are so many different
textile layering techniques.
Pat started off with a white piece of calico and
a tree design which she had drawn in an Art Class.
Each tree is individual and is covered in detailed
artwork and stitch.
Pat made her label and stitched it on.
Well done Pat!
I have never seen anything like this anywhere.
and we all love unique!

Demonstrating Felting and Carding

I was demonstrating feltmaking all day and Stewart
was using a drum carder all day!
There was so much interest.
He was carding and showing the difference between
sheeps' wool and Alpaca.
We had tubs of the different types of wools
to show the difference and my
mini exhibition showed how the wools felt
in different ways, wet and dry methods.
It was a wonderful day.

My Stand at The Alpaca Farm Open Day

Last Sunday Stewart and I was at The
Alpaca Farm at Cranworth, Norfolk for their Open Day.
I was there demonstrating wet and dry felting.
I had a great Stand area where I was
able to se up a display of felt work,
a wet felting area and an embellisher area.
We had two embellisher machines, which were
felting away all day with the felting public
and in between Stewart was carding and I was
layering up wool to make a piece of wet felt
and showing the process in the afternoon.
It was a wonderful day and
Thank you to all who visited and Nikki, her
family and friends who made us so welcome.
