Wet Felting :: Best of Show

The last time I was awarded a ribbon was probably back in high school for track — and, I assure you, it wasn't blue... not even close. So I wanted to toot my own horn a bit and share a photo of me with my big, fat, felted bowl and its shiny, best-of-show ribbon. Thanks to all who voted — and thanks to everyone at the Flag Wool & Fiber Festival and The Arizona Historical Society for another wonderful year and perhaps the best festival to date. So much work goes into these events and so many talented, hard-working people make it happen. I was thrilled to be able to teach a workshop this year and hope to be invited back next year for same. If you missed it this year, be sure to mark your calendars for next.

Vessels & Votives :: Recap

We just wrapped up a half-day Votives & Vessels felting workshop at this year's Flag Wool & Fiber Festival. Such a great group of participants — talented, dedicated, and super fun! It was great to see their vessels come together, each one unique and beautiful. Here are a few pics from the class. (Special thanks to my husband, Mike Buchheit, for all his help, photo-taking, and good cheer... I couldn't do these workshops without him!)
