‘Christmas cracker’ fibre gift packs

I created a few of these last year and they were very popular so this year I started early and made even more. 6 area already winging their way accross the pond to the US.
Each ‘cracker’ is packed with a hand dyed selection of fleece, tops, silk, locks and tencel.
A fabulous gift for anyone who loves to spin or make felt. For those hard to please people on your list. Here are a couple to whet your appetite!

Brighton Mini Maker Faire 8th Sept

I’m preparing like mad for this years’ extravaganza in the Corn Exchange, Brighton. With over 50 interactive maker stalls, including mine, it is shaping up to be bigger and better than last year. Last year we made felt balls, this year I’ve made the balls which visitors will decorate in the likeness of their favourite super hero or anyone else! Comics will be available to use as inspiration.
Free entry to all, some workshops will be free but mine will cost a little. I will also have bags of fibre and spare needles to purchase.
My little car is being used to dry all the washed fleece that I need to make them as well as the balls. I think there are about 50 in there so far.
I have had a go at decorating my own ball, not sure what it’s supposed to look like but I had fun doing it anyway! I’ve called him ‘Felt Man’
