Needle Felting Resources (for MAEA Conference)

This coming weekend I am presenting yet another needle felting workshop. I'm hoping that having done this a few times already, I come off as poised and polished. We'll see.

The workshop is for the Massachusetts Art Education Associations (MAEA) Conference. Not only is this my first time presenting at a state conference, it is my first time attending one. So, that means I'll have lots to post about my experiences in just a few short days.

In the meantime, I am creating this blog post as a resource for those attending my workshop (and anyone else).

Little felted frog. Using a design from the book Wool Buddies.

This link will bring you to a printable/downloadable information packet that I like to handout. Its packed with lots of tidbits of information that I painstakingly sought out and put in one place. There are also step-by-step photos of some of the needle felting projects I've done.

You can find more visuals of finished felting projects at these links:

Happy felting and always watch your fingers!
