My passion for wool began when my daughter and I learned to knit and found wool yarn to be our favorite to work with. With the intent to learn how to spin their wool into yarn we purchased a small flock of Romney sheep. Shortly after purchasing the sheep I was introduced to needle felting for the first time and after receiving some brief tutelage and a felting needle from a friend I began my journey.
Over the years I figured out some amazing techniques and short cuts that make needle felting so much more enjoyable. I have also increased my flock of sheep to over 100 focusing on amazing wool that is perfect for needle felting.
I began selling my needle felted sculptures online and received questions on how I achieved these results and if I offered classes on how to do it. I taught some classes locally and soon after developed needle felting kits so others could learn this enjoyable craft as well. Since I started selling online in 2008 I am excited to say that I have helped over 10,000 learn to needle felt with my kits.
My kits became popular and those that finished them began asking for more classes on how to make more detailed sculptures. They would also tell me that they struggled to find anyone in their local communities that shared their passion for needle felting, and that is when the idea for the Bear Creek Needle Felting Academy was born.
I am here to help you learn the techniques necessary to achieve amazing results so you can feel proud of your projects and make your needle felting stand out from the crowd.
The Bear Creek Needle Felting Academy offers the support and direction you need to thoroughly enjoy the process of needle felting with the right materials and tools plus many time saving secrets. You will be amazed at what you can create with someone right there with you every step of the way.
