Events and happenings

Greetings to all my felt and fiber lovers!
Felt News
August 2017
Nalbinding class at the Folk School, April 2016
Classes!
My next scheduled class will be Nalbinding, June 8-10, 2018 at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. This class typically fills up, so don't wait to sign up! The catalog at the Folk School is amazing, so don't miss a chance to go to "summer camp for grownups". :-)

I have a number of weekends available this winter to teach, and I love teaching, so if you have an idea for a class, guild workshop, or whatever, feel free to contact me! I teach felting, nuno felting, knitting, nalbinding, spinning, fleece prep/carding/combing, and tablet weaving.

Current Work In Progress - toe-up socks together on one long circular
WIP
I have several things in the works:

My Etsy store (laurafelts) actually has everything listed that I have finished and available! WOW!! Now I'm in the process of improving my photos and listings, and adding new items for the fall. I also take custom orders, although I don't have any listed, but feel free to contact me with any questions or requests.

I have been knitting since I was 5 years old, and pretty much non-stop since some time in high school. I typically design my own sweaters these days, so I am working on writing up the designs, making youtube videos of techniques I use, and documenting my projects on Ravelry. My youtube channel is LauraFelts1, and my Ravelry profile is LauraFelts! (Are you sensing a theme here? LOL) My latest video (which got added to the wrong channel, because I am still YouTube challenged!) is Knitting Back Backwards. Because entrelac leg warmers…

I'll be looking for my friends on social media!!
