Felt United 2011 projects

This ensemble was made especially for Felt United 2011, the wool is from our merino rambouillet sheep with 25% kid mohair from a friend's angora goat, all blended and dyed at Zeilinger's of Frankenmuth, Michigan.  The dye colors are red and blue.  When overlaid in the felting process they create the 3rd color of this year's Felt United color scheme. The individual pieces will be shown on the Felt United website along with felted creations from all over the world.

We had a wonderfully sunny day, a little cool but it did not slow down the enthusiasm.  Suzanne Higgs taught our visitors how to felt soap bars while Sue Pufpaff helped them make felted flowers.  Pictures of our event are shown on our website.
