Learning to Needle Felt!

This Saturday, we had a needle/wet felting class taught by Sarah Goins. We used Suri alpaca fiber, learned about alpaca, different types of fiber, the differences of wet and needle felting, and made very different projects! Cody made needle felted beads for a bracelet. Mary and Debbie made wet felted eggs and a needle felted nest, and Mary also made a cute little needle felted bunny! Here are some pictures from the class!

A rainbow of roving!
