It’s been a while since I’ve put some words down here, but I thought I would let you know what I have been up to!
Kreationality had a great 2015 season, and I got right back to sewing, and creating from new ideas right away in the new year. One of the things I have learned is called wet felting. I have always loved the felting process, specifically the nuno felting, or wet felting. It’s just a beautiful process, and a way to be very creative with color. So I took a class at Weaving & Fibert Arts Center. I loved learning the process with the added touch of using upcycled silk pieces on the project. We created scarves in the class, and I have since created several others. My favorite one is shown here.
I am signed up for another class this month at the Weaving & FIbert Arts Center to learn how to dye the silk and wool that are used in the felting process. I love the fiber arts! I hope to learn more on spinning wool soon, because I already bought a spinning wheel last year at the Hemlock Fiber show. Now that was a FUN show… I was overwhelmed by all the things I could create! I tried almost every process available. Hope to get back to that show this year!
I continue to gather wool sweaters, and chop them up to re-invent new, exciting and fun sweaters! You can visit my facebook page to see the current pieces I have completed!
I have listed the 2016 shows I am participating in on the Kreationality website under Festivals and Stores tab. I was accepted to Morristown Holiday Craft Show in New Jersey this year, but I decided not to do that one. Maybe in the future when I am retired, and have a bit more time!! :D
So I will continue learning new things, creating at my sewing machine, and keeping in touch with you through the summer!! Have fun, and hope to see you in September! I am grateful for you support!
