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).

SCA Chainmail Demo

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!

Midsummer Meetup Planning

ewe and me felted sea starsWe had a terrific response to the release of our schedule for the second half of 2014. We added a short, late afternoon session to follow our usual mid-day Sunday gatherings, so that people with morning obligations or those who cannot make a three-hour meeting have another option. I was delighted to see that folks who signed up for the first session want to stay for the second.

Here is what we’ve planned so far:

August: (Mid-day) Beginning Needle Felting & (late-day) Needle Felted Bonsai and 3-D Landscapes

September: (Mid-day) Framing Fairy Stories (Armatures) & (late-day) Sea Softies

October: (Mid-day) Scary Softies and Felted Zombies

November: (Mid-day) Needle Felted Pumpkins and Gourds

December: (Mid-day) Advanced Needle Felting Reindeer
