When you are needle felting, it's not a good idea to stab your needle into your foam felting board to store it, as you are damaging the foam and risk breaking the needle. Here's a great solution - your very own felted pin cushion! I always have mine next to me when I'm working, to keep needles, a PinPal, and straight pins handy. In this workshop, questions that many needle felters have will be answered - how to add and move wool and make specific shapes, how dense should your work be and why, correct terminology and safety tips. You'll learn the techniques needed to sculpt a form, and embellish your felted creation to make it fun, pretty, whimsical, cool, adorable - lots of ideas to choose from. AND... we'll add the secret element that keeps your pin cushion safe and sturdy!
