With spring in the air, knitting classes are slowing down and I am getting ready for some new Nuno felting classes. For those of you who are not familiar with Nuno felting, it is a Japanese fabric felting technique.  It melts loose fibers, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk or other loosely woven fabrics.  This creates a lightweight felt that can totally cover the background fabric or be used as decorative design.  In winter I like to make Nuno felted scarves and use the fibers to cover the whole scarf.  For spring and summer I will only use the wool as a decorative design (as shown on the shawl in this picture). I was very pleased with the way this shawl turned out.  I hand dyed the shawl first and then added flowers on the side and bottom.  Lastly, I added some mohair locks and beads in the center of each flower, and it's done!.  Love it!  

This is an ideal Mothers' Day gift and designs can vary from the traditional flowers to more abstract designs.  I will be sure to carry one with me when going out to restaurants where the air is freezing cold in summer!

Class info:  April 29,  1-4pm
                 May 7,  6-9pm

Please contact me on this blog for weekend or Girls' Night out dates and prices.  


Kids' summer camps are also filling up. Classes include knitting, crochet, and felting.  Please check out the website at for details about these camps. 

Here are some of the projects in the knitting camp we will do:

This cute kitty!

And this pretty purse!

Be sure to join me this summer for a great adventure in knitting, crochet, and felting!

It is still winter, but we know Spring is just around the corner and I am already planning for fun projects for a Spring break mini-camp for young knitters.  Camp will be on April 7 and 8 from 9am-12pm and are open to girls and boys ages 8 and up.

Last summer I had a week long camp at Stitch Pretty and had the best time with very enthusiastic knitters.  Elizabeth and Candice are sisters who attended my summer camp and finished a few awesome projects.

Elizabeth with her fingerless mittens and hat.  She also finished a drop stitch scarf and a few smaller projects.

Candice with her hat and toy.  She also finished some other smaller projects.

These two sisters are amazing and very enthusiastic knitters. I am looking forward to see what they will finish this year at camp.

For the Spring break mini-camp some of projects that kids can pick from include a teddy (advanced knitters), owls, etc.  Beginner students will finish an easier project.
