April saw the International Feltmakers Association AGM in Bath. We had a wonderful four days attending all the different workshops, meeting up with old friends, viewing all the lovely work on show and finally having a splendid grand dinner on the final evening. Delegates turned up in some spectacular outfits, all felted of course.

I attended a workshop on making 18th century corsets, one of very interesting felt beads based on seeds and tree fruit and a needle felting foxes one with Jenny Barnett. My fox sits on my desk and stares at me. I was lucky enough to visit the Fashion Museum in Bath and get to touch some of the beautiful antique dresses in the store, with white gloves on of course.
Wow! So much has happened since I returned home from Australia.

A project in a school in Gloucestershire, the Stitch and Craft Show at Olympia where I ran some felting workshops. And that's only March. The Stitch and Craft Show was very good and I met some very nice people, some of who have since come on my felting workshops. Here is some of the work that was produced in my one hour taster workshops.
