Hand painted roving in Tequila Sunrise colorway

Exciting piece of pre-felt!

Vineyard colorway lives up to it's name.

This first time felter had fun playing with color and materials.

New Gauze Shawl

laid out and wetted down

More rolling needed.

Then rubbing to really shrink it down.

The rinsed and finished shawl dries quickly in the warm air.

Beautiful colors, soft and flowing design.

Talmadge Art Show this Sunday

I will have lots of new work at the Talmadge Art Show, this Sunday, November 20th.
If you are in the San Diego area, we hope to see you there. We do this show three times a year and feel it is the very best art and fine craft show in town!

You will also be treated to a unique selection of new leather purses from Burt.
His unique color combinations, wide soft shoulder straps,
and signature closures finish each piece beautifully.

Felt Bracelet Class

The felt bracelet class puts a smile on felters faces. With a bit of nuno, a little wet felting, and discovering needle felting. It has it all!

Felting on Whidbey Island

To work in a room with lots of natural light is always a pleasure. But to also have the most peaceful and beautiful views out of the windows was a real treat.
Together we spent four fabulous days of felting. Beginning with the basics of Nuno Felt,
we moved on to scarves, then felted rope bracelets and cuffs, and finally........

Stringy Thingys!

Nothing could give a teacher more satisfaction than happy participants,
enjoying every minute........

and being delighted with their efforts.
Thanks to all of you for a wonderful retreat!
A very special thanks to Beverly Ash Gilbert for making it all possible.
