Happy Felt United Day!!!!

IMG_5460While it’s still Friday here, I know that some of you are turning the page on Friday and have moved on to Saturday, October 4, 2014 in your area of the world. Wherever you are, we are sending our best  wishes for a very Happy Felt United Day! Be sure to post your photos onto the Felt United Facebook page. We will try to get to the approval of those photos in as timely a fashion as possible….both Nicola and I will be felting the day away. too, so we’ll add photos just as soon as we finish our respective days. Nicola is hosting a fabulous day at Clasheen in Ireland where they’ll be creating a fantastic collaborative wall hanging, enjoying a potluck supper and having a fun stash swap/sale. Wish that I could be in two places at once….sounds like such fun! And, I am with felt artist, Robbin Firth, of Heartfelt Silks, where we’ll be felting and eco-printing felt hats in Hudson, Wisconsin, located on the beautiful St. Croix River. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing to celebrate the day, I hope that you will enjoy every minute, knowing that your felting friends around the world are celebrating right along with you. I know that we’re all looking forward to seeing how the day unfolds around the globe.

It’s been a great week leading up to Felt United Day…We’ve gained many new members (can you believe that we’re nearing 5,000 members?) and have had many wonderful Peace inspired photos posted. We hope that you’ve enjoyed this year’s Peace theme, which was inspired by the late humanitarian, Nelson Mandela.

We thank you all for so generously sharing your heart and talents with the group. You are such an inspiration.

Here’s to creativity, peace, worldwide friendships, and of course, feltmaking.

Together, we Felt United,

Dawn Edwards and Nicola Brown

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
