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.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

I have a one room art studio with loft.

What inspires you?

I love animals and nature. I have drawn or painted animals since I was a little girl.

What makes your business stand out?

I consider my creations, works of art. Each item is one of a kind.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Do what you love.

What does American Made mean to you?

Quality, integrity, and pride.
