Needle-felted peaches, felted purses and monster bags were among the many projects that Joanne Dailey brought in to share with us. We then spent a couple of hours needle-felting birds and  little animals using pipe cleaners for armatures, some of us made coasters using cookie cutters to shape them. I found  needle felting to be very addictive as the rhythm of the needle is most therapeutic. I also found a charming youtube of little animals for ideas @ (you will have to paste this into your URL to get there).

Joanne recommends books like PURSENALITIES by Eva Weichman, Mason Dixon Knitting’s  THE BUTTON HOLE BAG and NONI, just pockets, #404 yellow/orange jacket for the  monster bag.

Mary Black honored us by bringing in her needle felted art. Wow!
