Felt and Textile Artists

What We Do

Felting has become very fashionable. Felting is an ancient craft that has been brought into the 20th century using some of the finest wool that is now available.

Felted scarves especially are very popular along with dresses and jackets, hats, gloves, bags even shoes. Felted bowls and animals are also popular among our members. Needle felted pictures are amazing and require a close look to discover they are actually painted with wool.

Update: This group is continually expanding and growing into other textile pieces. Some of the new materials being used are

*** Applique quilts
*** Clothing
*** Bags
*** Beaded items
*** Eco dyeing

With our friendly group we encourage and inspire each other, especially when we hold our annual exhibition where we show our felt and textile artistry to the public.

If you do not know what felt and textile art is, come have a look. We encourage new members to come and give it a go.
