Felting Fun

Hi, a long weekend of felting fun was offered by one of our members, Suzanne G.  More than a dozen of us descended on Suzanne's place on Sunday to learn how to make shibori felted shapes.  Many different colours were used for both the backing fabric and the roving side.  A number of us stayed the night (8 all up from memory), and felted again on Monday, learning about resists, four of us stayed that night and felted again on Tuesday, practicing what we had learnt, heading home late that afternoon.  A wonderful three days was had, lots of laughter, chat, eating and creating in great company.  Thankyou again Suzanne G.
