THANKS and pictures of the beautiful felt created at the KIA workshops!

I’m home safely at last and bowled over when I look back at all the pictures I have taken over my whirlwind felting trip to the US.  Four weeks sounds like a LOT of time to spend on the road but in actual fact the time just whooshed by although I lived every minute to the best of my ability and LOVED every second spent with fibre friends both new and old!  It’s just not possible to thank everyone who contributed to my wonderful experience individually on the blog and I would hate to leave anyone out unintentionally so to everyone who made me feel totally at home and SO welcome everywhere I travelled THANKS!!!  Thanks to all the organisers, hosts, friends, workshop participants and blog followers who really made the trip so special and thanks to everyone who gave me unusual gifts along the way, fibre, chocolate, rolling mat, sequin waste, artificial fabric, inclusions, fabric, vintage trimmings and other little items either difficult or impossible to get here in Ireland.  I love them all and hope to show you pictures here as soon as I start to incorporate them into my felt over the next few months although in case you are wondering I am eating the yummy chocolate, some things are just a step to far when it comes to adding inclusions!

Now for some pictures as promised from the fantastic complex bag workshop at the Kalamazoo Institute of Art, pictures to follow tomorrow from the felted accessories workshop and then over the weekend pictures from my visit with Dawn and my trip to the Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck with Heather!

  1. Good morning Nicola,

    Oh, I’ll bet you’re having more fun going back through all of your photos. I so enjoyed our time together, and you’re exactly right, it whooshed right by:-) Thank you so much for making the journey. Can’t wait to see you the next time you’re in the U.S. – Hope it’s soon – I sure do miss you.

    Well, off to the store to pick up some Cool-Whip and perhaps a map!!!

    Big Hugs,

  2. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to make the trip to Kalamazoo from Kentucky to take your classes! It was really fun to meet you in person, and the new techniques and inspiration will stay with me for a long time. You are a great teacher, thanks for coming to the states!
