Wonderful Wooly Workshop!


Last year at the Craft and Hobby Show in Long Beach, I taught a paper arts class to a group of 75 (!) paper lovers.  At the end of the class, a woman came up to me and asked if I would please take a look at her craft - which was a box full of needle-felted animals...some of the most wonderful, expressive animals I have ever seen!  I was blown away by Evelyn Neily's slight of hand and her exquisite attention to detail. After tearing up a bit, (that's how moving her animals are!) I immediately asked her if she would come to teach a needle felting workshop at French General.
Next Saturday, October 6th, Evelyn is finally coming to teach her wonderful wooly sheep workshop...she will also be bringing her barnyard of animals to inspire and offer up for sale.  If you have ever wondered about needle felting or been interested in creating soft sculpture animals...this is the class for you!  To sign up for an afternoon of creativity and wool loving, please visit the French General workshop page...now don't be sheepish!

That little lamb/sheep is amazing! I'm really wishing I lived in CA now! Can you post photos of more examples of her work?

Will it ever possible that I could live less than the country measures in distance away from you?
In a heartbeat I would be there, Dang!
Wonderful workshop, I would love to learn! XO, Hol

Oh how fun that class would be! But alas, too far away!

Hi! The minute I saw the little lamb, I fall in love with it. I love lambs, and have a small collection that I put out for Christmas. I feel so blessed to be able to take this wonderful class. I can't wait!
