Whoa!

Okay, brace yourselves.;) Cynthia and I decided it is time to say goodbye. It is time for others to take over FeltUnited, time for new blood. ..Ok.. that sounds a bit creepy.. grinning..

So we looked for people who would want and love to take over FeltUnited and we found them. Through the years we worked on this global event, the friendship between Cynthia and I was always the key, it ruled every decision. And I am happy that the ones taking over are friends too. Both felters, both kind and both hard workers.

Cynthia and I have had a good time working together and I will surely miss that. We loved getting to know so many people and we were, every year, amazed by the amount of participants, about how enthusiastic people all over the globe worked on this FeltUnited day, the amazing things people did and made. How  the love you all have of this medium felt, had no boundaries and took no notice of borders and we thank you for you and for all you did. You rocked the world.

We will be working on the background for a little while but will both be busy concentrating on other things, family and work. Cynthia is busy on a variety of projects both in the studio, as well as in her kitchen, and as always focusing on family life. And I am focussing on work and on travels and teaching but also enjoying a bit of rest after working on an Installation project from which Duinvlegels made a short video which will go online here today(!) as a farewell.

So this post is about saying farewell and about saying welcome!…

Ladies and gentleman, may I introduce to you as your new FeltUnited team..Dawn Edwards from the US and Nicola Brown from Ireland!! (trumpets guys!) From now on you can ask them any question you want!:)  Dawn and Nicola, we wish you all the best and don’t forget to enjoy the ride!

Author:Dawn Edwards/Felt So Right

I am a felt/fiber artist and instructor. I love to share the joys of feltmaking with others, having taught within the U.S. and internationally. I specialize in fun, out-of-the ordinary felt hats sold under the name of Felt So Right through specialty retail, boutique and gallery shops throughout the United States.I live in Plainwell, Michigan, where I work from my home studio. I believe that we are all artists....That it is the soul deep need to create. I love and appreciate so many of the arts, but I have found my passion through feltmaking. I find such joy in the alchemy of turning a few ounces of wool into a thing of beauty, limited only by the imagination and I find that the unique sculptural and color possibilities always inspire creativity. I have studied feltmaking with renowned felt and fiber artists from around the world. Feltmaking has truly opened windows to the world for me and I am grateful for this most wonderful opportunity. www.feltsoright.com

    Although I have yet to participate in the FeltUnited, I have followed and drooled over all the images of the wonderful felt that has been submitted each year, plus I have followed Elis in her Installations and updates. I wish both you Elis, and you Cynthia all the very best. I would also like to welcome Nicola and Dawn to the forefront of a truly wonderful inception and hope that I can get my act together one day to joining in with all the wonderful felt on display for the world to see. All the best, peeps. Julie Williams, Western Australia.
