I've changed the workshop name "Gown Fragments" to "Textured Embellisher Nuno" because in essence that is what it is all about - learning the techniques to creat FABULOUS texture using your needle felting machine and wet felting - in this case the Baby Lock Embellisher. Baby Lock is once again kindly providing machines for students to use; this time at the MFS in Madison, Wisconsin, July 30 - August 5. Internationation felters will teach too -- I'm so honored and excited to be part of this event and have the opportunity to meet more of you! Imagine, you'll be able to felt feathers and dupioni!!! - not easily done with wet felting alone
This past weekend, we had a blast at Judy Gula's Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria, Virginia, and I had the best and most fun students. My friend Pat Smith, who is my personal cheerleader and the most talented driver yet - will drive through hail, snow . . . . . . anything just so we can felt! (just kidding but it was really raining cats and dogs) We made quite the fashion statement wearing our Fabulous Fascinators that, although unplanned, somehow matched our jackets perfectly; we had to remove our hats at one point to protect them from the nasty downpour!
