I had my first class in my new fiber studio today. I am calling it my guinea pig class, lol. It was a test class to work out all of the kinks! It was a lot of fun. My students were my mom, my sister, my grandma, my sister-in-law, my soon to be sister-in-law, a friend and her daughter. There were a lot of laughs and a few tears (felting needles hurt a lot when you stick yourself). There were multiple projects being worked on…
My mom and grandma made 3D felted birds, several people worked on needle felted wall hangings, and my soon to be sister-in-law, Patricia made a wet felted scarf. They all did a fabulous job!
As I said, there were a lot of laughs and here is a picture of my mom looking shocked that her lump of wool was actually looking like a bird 🙂
Aimee and her daughter, Hailey, were instant felting pros.
All of the fun and hard work wore poor Paisley out and she spent most of the day on the bed 🙂
Here is Patricia holding up her beautiful scarf.
Here’s Hailey with her adorable needle felted cat.
My grandma’s bird is going to hang in her window and warn all of the little birdies outside to not fly into the window.
Julie didn’t finish hers, but she needle felted a background that had a watercolor feel to it.
She is going to needle felt the word ‘Dream’ on it. I can’t wait to see the finished piece!

and the shocker was Aimee and her Rooster
I love the details and I never would have thought to outline the feathers with blue.
I’m not sure how she managed it, but my sister didn’t get in any of the pictures. She worked on a wall hanging with a whimsical goat, sheep, and cow on it. I will have her send me a picture once she has finished it!
My first ‘real’ class is next Saturday and I am really excited about it.
Thanks to my mom, I now have the perfect sign for my studio –
