Felting Study Group

Date & Time: Feb 26th at 9:00 am
Location: 6022 Northill Loop SW, Olympia

Deb Naslund is hosting our first felting study group meeting. Please give her an RSVP and let her know if you are coming dnaslund127@gmail.com

We are going to get started with simple needle felting either for a greeting card or small ornament. And we will plan the next study group felting technique and location for Spring.

Raging Carey shared with us some of her lovely dyed wool for us to use. I have foam and some forms to experiment for shapes.

Bring a lunch and if you have them:
– bandaids
– dyed wool, alpaca fiber/yarn you have
– pre-felted wool or other to attach your needle felt items
– felting needles
– 3 inch or thicker foam (not styrofoam)
– felting books or pictures for inspiration on design or color

We will all share what we have to get you an idea of what kinds of kits or tools you might like.

Check out 5 of the OWG sponsors that have felting needles/kits





Darma Trading has felting needles and a wool scarf that could be used to put your needle felt object on. See their technique:

Flora Carlile-Kovas will be our OWG program speaker in April. If you get a chance go to RAGS Wearable Art fund raiser and see her work.
