It has been a very long time since my last post – whoops! But I’m happy to let you know that there are two autumn needle felting workshops scheduled at the Beehive Wool Shop, located at 1700 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC. These workshops are for beginners – no experience required. All supplies will be provided.
The first will be on Sunday, October 20, from 10:30am – 12:30pm, and we will be making a needle felted pumpkin.
The second workshop will be on Sunday, November 17, from 10:30am – 12:30pm, and we will be making a fox.
You can sign up for the classes via the Beehive website. Hope to see you there!
All the world loves a penguin… or at least 10 people do. The first penguin needle felting workshop is full, and last I heard there were only two places left in the newly scheduled November 25th workshop. Contact the Beehive if one of those spots is meant for you!
Yay – fall has arrived (and not my usual kind of fall 😉). First off, the annual pumpkin needle felting workshop is happening on October 21st at the Beehive Wool Shop, from 10:30 – 12:30am. Call or drop by the Beehive to book a spot! This is one of my favourite workshops – pumpkins are fun.
Secondly, I’m taking part in a market on October 28th (poster below). It’s a fibre market arranged by Island Knits, and the list of sellers makes me keep repeating to myself “I’m there to sell, not to buy (much)”.
I’m madly felting away to produce stock, and have broken out “the good stuff” – hand-dyed fibres that I’ve been hoarding. I will also be making some copper and sterling silver fibre related jewellery (shawl pins and sticks, and possibly stitch markers).
I’m really excited about this – I haven’t participated in a market in years. I’ve been saying that I need to be two people – one to obsess over all of the organizational and table design details (I’m a great obsesser!), and the other to actually make stuff. My mind is whirling!
I hope to see you there! There’s always the opportunity for lots of yummy food at the Public Market too… choosing is the difficult part…
Have you been swithering about whether or not you want to take a workshop on needle felting Easter eggs? Good news – while the April 1st class is full, another has been scheduled for April 8th. As always, space is limited. Drop by the Beehive or give them a call at 250-385-2727 to register. Hope to see you there!
