I used to look at my little bits of this and that–fancy fibers, silk and wool roving, hand-dyed gauze, threads, and vintage lace–and wonder what I could do with them. They were too good to throw away, too small to be used. Or so I thought, until I learned how to do needle felting with a machine.
Suddenly, I could use those fiber bits to create unique pieces of fabric, embellishments, backgrounds and more. Machine needle felting projects took over my studio: I was hooked.
In our Free Guide to Machine Needle Felting for Quilters, you will learn from three pros how to design, create, and embellish machine needle-felting projects and incorporate them into your fiber art.
The first machine needle-felting how-to comes from Jane LaFazio, who has taught many workshops on needle felting. In Needle-Felted & Hand-Stitched Fiber Art: Working in a Series, she shares advice on how to use the needle-felting machine, how to store your supplies, and step-by-step instructions for creating your felted art.
Next, in Stepping Out: Take Machine Needle Felting to The Next Level, Leslie Tucker Jenison explains how to incorporate needle felting into a small, stitched quilt, using Timtex as a foundation.
Finally, in Field of Flowers, Pokey Bolton shows you how to design a landscape composition for needle felting using photo-editing software. Then she walks you through the needle-felting process.
