Tell us about your business.

I started needle felting little creatures at first. I am also a knitting addict. One night, before falling asleep, I imagined a black, felted purse with needle felting. I water color, so the surface felting was an easy conversion. I fell in love with my first one, and have continued felting anything else that I can think of to knit. I sell my products in a gift shop at Breitenbush Hot Springs resort, and to individuals.
