We’re now in Wilmington!

It’s been a busy and fun couple of weeks since we moved from Durham to Wilmington, NC. We’ve met really interesting people at Cape Fear Games, Elite Innovations, the Community Action Center, meetups, and at the Shire of Seareach, SCA, demonstration (shown below).

We’ve also set up some of our own meetups. Instead of creating another needle felting meetup, I’ll be adding these events to our Costuming, Cosplay, and LARP meetup, since felting is an ancient fiber craft that will fit in nicely with our SCA and LARP activities. You can find all our Wilmington events, and others we like, on Nettie’s Shared Calendar for Nerds and Newcomers.

September 1, 2015, our new Etsy store will officially open and offer needle felting supplies and tools, since we seek the best prices for ourselves and hope to pass on the savings to fellow artists. Please visit us and let us know if you have questions or suggestions.

Happy Felting!

What will you be doing in August?

#CTMonthInTheLife #workspaceI’m delighted to join in the fun of Create and Thrive’s new Month in the Life game. It’s a “Photo-a-Day Instagram Challenge for Creatives,” and there is a theme for each day. For example, on August 1, we post a photo of our workspace. Since Jess lives in Australia, I started early in the U.S. with this photo of Feather Woman. I made her for a needle felting exchange.

Be sure to tag your Instagram photos with #CTMonthInTheLife @CreateAndThrive and share them with us via Twitter and Pinterest.
