This past weekend, we had the first ever felt gathering in Idaho. It was so much fun getting a small, yet mighty group of felters together in my state to share felting knowledge, ideas and inspire one another. For our first gathering at my felting studio, I called the "Mad Hatters Felt Party", we made crazy hats. It was so much fun and such a great experience to collaborate on ideas and work together. Thanks Jo, Tannya, Maria, Anya and Betty. Hope you can make it next time Keifer, however, Sun Valley is quite a distance from the Treasure Valley.
There are many forces in nature that have the potential to create stunning beauty through fierce, natural events. In life, we are the products of dramatic events that mold and shape us and create beautiful edges.
After I first met felt and fiber arts as an organic farm volunteer on Vermont Grand View sheep farm and B&B, I knew this art was going to be a big part of my future.
My journey in felting began in summer 2012 in the Green Mountains of Vermont. After a six year career in marketing and public relations in Southern California, I did the unthinkable. I embarked in a yearlong adventure to learn how to grow my own food and learn sustainable living practices as an organic farm volunteer. I had no idea the places this adventure would take me, the amazing people I would meet and the new skills I would learn that would transform my life.
Had a great time at my first show at the Boise Saturday Market. I will be there every Saturday so come and check out my booth. Market is every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m on 8th St downtown.
