ETSY - a life changing experience

I don't know what I did with my time before joining Etsy. It gives me a reason to create and to see what other people are doing out there. Suddenly the world seems like a much smaller place and I have never spent so much time at the post office.

Our local Spinners, Weavers and Felters Guild are having their open day tomorrow. A good reason to poke around and find more fibre to collect, use and just look at. When that's over there is the excitement of checking the shop to see how many people have looked.

Like a lot of other members I have  done dressmaking, embroidered, done stumpwork, patchworked, mosaiced etc and have now fallen for felting. I did a slipper class on Mothers Day last year and have been experimenting since then. I hope to learn lots more from the veteran felters.
