Recovery week, and SALE!!



The past couple of months have flown by in a whirlwind of activity preparing for the two biggest shows, thus far, of my artisan life. I spent a solid month working non-stop to have plenty of merchandise ready to sell, and, well, the biggest shows on paper didn’t quite pan out as anticipated. Sometimes you pick a good show, sometimes a good show has a bad year, it really is the luck of the timing. So, after recovering this past week, sleeping in a bit, resting still sore hands, back and legs, I’ll be ready to kick off this next week working on things that I didn’t get completed so that I can have even fresher new items at TWISTED! Fiber Festival, here in Topeka on First Friday weekend of November (see for details), the Bizaare Bazaar on Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend (info at and the final show of the holiday season, Unitarian Universalist Fair Trade & Hand Made Bazaar on December 11 & 12, also here in Topeka.

I had hoped to have an Insta-sale on Instagram (follow me, I’m @feltit) this week, but need to postpone until next week so that I can get pictures ready. Watch for the notice on Instagram for when the sale will begin: first to post a comment for the item with SOLD and their paypal address will be the winner! I plan to have wreaths and mug cuffs up for grabs-perfect items for gifts.

I hope to see you at one of the shows in the next two months, and am grateful for your continued support of this felt and fiber artisan. I’ll have classes to post soon-keep watching!

Until next time, go stab something into existence!!
