In 2013 my daughter-in-law created an addict! She had been working on some needle felted creations for awhile and notice that I was very interested and so she gave me a kit for Christmas. That started my addiction and I have been busily “stabbing” ever since.
As a child I was always drawing, mostly horses, and always hung out with the art room crowd in high school, but as an adult I hadn’t had much to do with art until I took a class on water color from Kathy Redman. I went on to paint for several years, but I hadn’t ever done any 3D work until I started needle felting. The process of bringing to life a felted sculpture is very satisfying and I find the actual stabbing to be calming. I highly recommend it.
I started with small animals and birds have made pet portraits for several people. I am currently working on a detailed Nativity scene.
