Slocan Valley Felts!!

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

Yesterday was a wonderful,wet snow day in the Slocan Valley. Though it is only an hours drive from Nelsontowne, I seem to rarely make the journey these days and it seems a world away! I was so happy to finally make it out to the Slocan Valley Threadsguild to teach a Needle felting Class!!

Its a really great little space. I just Love the enthusiasm that seems to naturally erupt from the gatherings of “fiber people”. It is so much about the sharing of skills, new ideas and inspirations.

We had a lovely group of new felters! on Saturday, and I think they all haveĀ  a healthy new addiction. Needlefelting! There was a good variety of projects completed as we explored the sculptural possibilities of unspun wool combined with felting needles. We used merino wool batting and rovings from Maplerose and got creative!

Every student made something beautiful and full of its own character. I always love to see what will take shape!!

Thankyou to all that participated!! To the RDCK for organizing and Slocan Valley Threadsguild for hosting!! See you next time :)
