Wool Felt: At Last I Have Some of the Good Stuff!

I’m very excited to carve out some time to work with the lovely wool felt I ordered from Prairie Point Junction. I’m crazy busy working on my next newspaper column, prepping for tomorrow’s TV segment and working on multiple CraftSanity Magazine projects, but I had to stop and shoot a photo of the felt atop the massive snow pile on the back deck. I just LOVE the colors. Thanks for sharing a great wool felt source, Abby!

Ok, I gotta get back to work. Ironically, tomorrow’s TV segment involves felt of the non-wool variety. (This is largely due to the fact that  my TV craft budget is $0. I don’t get paid to do segments, so I often work from my stash and I have loads of regular felt on hand.) Ah, well, I’m not a felt snob and I’ll be working with the good stuff soon enough. :  )

Happy crafting everyone!

Have you ever been to the Attic Window Quilt shop on Alpine? They have a great selection of quality felt. Just a thought.

Great suggestion, Rene! I was not aware that Attic Window stocks wool felt. This is very good news. Are you aware of other local sources? I haven’t been able to find any on the south end of town.

I love Prairie Point Junction! I get all my wool felt from there. It’s affordable and as you see, PRETTY!!! I have so many colors. And am constantly daydreaming about ways to use them. In fact, I may have an idea for your magazine. I’ll probably get around to it a year from now. lol.

Oooooh. Here’s the latest I’ve done (if you’re looking for inspiration):

No, sorry I don’t know of any other sources around the G.R. area other than Attic Window for good quality new felt. However, I don’t mind repurposing pre-owned wool; so most of the time I hit the Salvation Army for wool sweaters (especially this time of year) and felt it myself. I love it because it makes for nice thick textured pieces.

Thank you Mick! What an awesome blesisng and gift! I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time now but my husband has me on a book buying freeze until we get our finances better under control. We just went through a bankruptcy and because I take care of my mother-in-love I can’t get an outside job. So this really means a lot for me as I am just a newby when it comes to understanding God’s Amazing Grace. I love your thoughts and I want to drink up your perspective. I will definately be sharing this with my friends on facebook and also on my blog. Blessings to you and yours and I hope you have a Happy Merry Christmas!!!
