If this is your first time here (and especially if it's your first time needle felting), I'm super happy and excited for you! Needle felting is probably one of the best things that ever happened to me in my personal art "herstory." There are so many things I can do with it; the possibilities are endless! Not to mention it's incredibly therapeutic. It's like the arts&crafts-world's version of kick boxing for stress-relief because you stab your creations to life. Hopefully only your creations, because it can be quite a bloody mess if you stab yourself in the hand, so please be careful! Don't be scared though! It's no worse than poking yourself with a needle, and anyone from age 5 to 95 can do this. Even my 4 year old has started her needle felting journey, and I've had several 5 and 6 year-olds in my local workshops. I have yet to meet someone who tried it that did not enjoy needle felting, and most of the people I know who have tried it tell me they're hooked on it and can't put it down.

At the top here you'll find the tutorials I have available for purchase. If you scroll down past the tutorials section, you'll find my needle felting guides and free tutorials. I also have a few available on my Youtube channel, including some W.I.P. videos so you can watch as I complete more complex projects from start to finish.

Guide to Felting

When I started needle felting over three years ago, there really weren't any guides to it online. There were a few books out there on the shelves, but most of the books are like tutorial books - they just show you how to make stuff, not really explaining the details of how or why felting works. They told you to get needles, but they didn't really go into detail about which needles to get, or what the difference was between them. They told you to use a base to protect your work surface and your needles, but they just mentioned using a standard-issue foam that you can buy in the shop. I didn't know I could save some money and use a sponge, or save the packing foam from your purchases. Thinking back, it seems like it would be common sense, but I know that when you're learning something new, you're afraid of experimenting. It's like when you try a new recipe - you do it word for word, even if you're pretty sure you can replace one ingredient with another because it might turn out horribly wrong if you change it up. I'm here to tell you, it's okay to experiment. That this is so new, nobody has ALL the answers. In fact, I'm already planning on revisiting these posts as I find things that might help you. Think of it as a needle felting wiki. Should you decide you want to support me in my efforts, go up and grab a tutorial for yourself. You'll only get more out of your investment, and nothing to lose.
