The leaves are falling, pumpkin patches are in abundance and Halloween is just around the corner. Need some quick, spooky décor? Needle felting is a fun and easy way to sculpt roving into three dimensional objects or add embellishments to your knitting. Using a barbed needle and different colors of wool, you can create just about anything by punching the needle repeatedly into the roving, creating shapes as you go. It’s fun and cathartic!

Robin Pence will be here at Knitterly on Sunday, October 14th from 10 am to 1 pm  to teach her wonderful needle felting class. You can choose to create a seasonal fall pumpkin, a Halloween pumpkin or a Day of the Dead Skull. This class is suitable for beginners and intermediate students alike. The basic techniques of felting will be explained for beginners, while students with more experience will be guided to expand their knowledge of creating free forms from wool. Building shapes, sculpting faces, and using various varieties of wool will be covered; students will be supported and encouraged to use their own creativity to create unique pieces. We have all the supplies you need; roving, felting needles and foam blocks. If you’d like more information about the classes at Knitterly, click here. We look forward to seeing you!
