Happy 2015 Felt United Day!

While it’s still Friday here in Michigan, the calendar page has already turned in some areas of the world, making it Felt United Day, Saturday, October 3, 2015. In fact, my good friend and co-coordinator of Felt United, Nicola Brown, just happens to be in Australia, where she’s been teaching this past week. So happy Felt United Day, Nicola. And, wherever you are, our very best wishes for a most happy Felt United Day!

Please be sure to post your photos and celebration images onto the Felt United Facebook page. We will try to get to the approval of those photos in as timely a fashion as possible. 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 from 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.

Felt United has been a gift to many of us, kindling friendships as we share in our love of felting. Did you know that we now have over 5,600 members? It is wonderful to know that we share this common bond.

Be sure to check in to see the many fantastic ‘Home’ inspired photos already posted on our Felt United Facebook page. We hope that you’ve enjoyed this year’s theme and we thank you all for so generously sharing your heart and talents with the group. You are such an inspiration.

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

Together, we Felt United,

Dawn Edwards and Nicola Brown

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
