FELT,HOOK,KNIT,SEW,BREATHE

I have just finished teaching the new "Landfelt" workshop (one more scheduled in May).
What a wonderful time! With great results. I will post pictures shortly.
These workshops will be available here at London-Wul throughout the summer. You form the group and we'll make the booking! There will be lots more felting for me this summer as I prepare for a solo exhibit in conjunction with the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival this October. (The sketchbook is scheduled for a workout this afternoon).

I am also gearing up to take a Quilting Arts course out of Britain:
I am soo looking forward to it. A bit of a treat from me - to me :)

oh! and I am just about to finish up "the Angus Rug". I had one last section to hook and decided to dye for it. I am happy with the results - a very "moody" sky is now in the works.

...and another very busy year takes shape.

On the note of sewing we have two babylock machines listed as our feature sale for the Month of May. These are in store only specials. If you are interested in a top quality machine at a clearance price you may want to pop in and have a look. The price will be well worth your while.
