Christmas is coming!

I hope you all enjoyed this little video! (thanks to my daughters for putting this up for you, as it was beyond me!!)
We had our Christmas felt in, with Dorothy Dinsmore and what fun it was!! We made little needle felted stuffed robins and Dorothy inspired us with her other array of Robins! If only I had time before Christmas to try and make a few more!!
Dorothy demonstrating the technique of how to needle felt the Robin.
The morning session flew in(!!!) as we were having such fun and needless to say the chat was mighty!
The concentration was intense! Or may be they are just camera shy?

Dorothy had made up little kits for us, that Feltmakers North gave out to everyone as a Christmas present, this meant everyone had all the ingredients they needed, which meant no stress! Well except for the odd person you stabbed their finger instead of the wool, but luckily no serious injuries were incurred!
                                                    Here are the fantastic little Robins!

Just a wee reminder about the hat workshop which is February 4th the details are in the workshop section. It will be a fun relaxed day of felting, and a good way of learning another skill. If you would like an application contact Ann or email us at feltmakersnorth. Details will follow in the New year re the Nuno felting workshop in March, with a Elizabeth Bonnar.

So all that leaves me to do is to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year, and I look forward to seeing you all in 2012!
