Needle Felting is such a crazy, cool craft!


Its popularity is sweeping the world.  Nearly anything that one can imagine can be created from wool using only single barbed felting needles! 


My specialty is needle felted dolls with a focus on celebrity caricatures.  My Felt Alive dolls are fully jointed, solid felted wool and require no sewing, no stuffing, no painting, no knitting or crocheting, no patterns and no wire armatures!  That's right, none of that!  Shaping and sculpting fluffy, unspun wool with barbed felting needles is nearly like magic.

Needle felting first caught my eye in 2007 and it is leading me on a fantastic journey of discovery.  I am not a trained artist, nor do I have an artistic background - needle felting allowed me to connect with the artist lurking in me.  I have discovered my life's passion and there is rarely a day you won't find me poking at wool. 


Nearly as much as I love needle felting, I love teaching this amazing craft to creative people all over the world through my Felt Alive Video Workshops - available individually on DVD or students can access all of them at my new online workshop site - The Needle Felters Workshop.   I'm so proud of my students' projects
