Learn 3 dimensional wool sculptural needle felting. This class will teach you how to create faces in wool. With the techniques you learn in class you can then go on to create other characters in wool. The class project is faces on pumpkins. You can practice making faces – silly, serious, or scary – and then use them in your holiday decorations. The class is October 26th from 10am to 4pm at Fiddlesticks Quilt Shop in Boulder City, Nevada. Call the shop at 702-293-2979 to sign up. Brown bag your lunch and bring your imagination – everything needed for class is provided for you.

I have created easy to follow rag doll patterns and art doll patterns. Click here for e-patterns . Step-by-step directions with photos are great for all skill levels. If you still have questions while sewing you can go to the contact page and ask questions. I also have two books that offer patterns for multiple projects with the same detailed directions and lots of full color photos. All of my patterns always include full size templates so you are ready to sew.
I will be teaching a workshop from 10 to 4 on Saturday, May 18th at Fiddlesticks Quilt Shop in Boulder City, Nevada.We will be making Neenah the Tiny Flower Fairy from my new book “Fanciful Cloth Dolls“. You can call Fiddlesticks at 702-293-2979 for more information or to sign up. This is a fun project for all skill levels.
I have added e-Patterns so you will be able to receive your patterns quickly and save the shipping charges. Shipping charges outside the United States are often higher than the cost of a pattern so this will be especially helpful for those outside the United States. The e-Patterns are in a PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to download. Most people have the Adobe Acrobat Reader but if you find that you don’t, it is available free online.
I’m excited to announce that my new book Fanciful Cloth Dolls has just been released from C&T Publishing. There are projects for all skill levels. I included some fun things to try with each project like iron on thread from Kreinik and Lesley Riley’s Transfer Artist Paper.
Take a peek at some of the projects.

Ida welcomes Fall with her Pumpkin Harvest.
Ida stands 7″ tall with a wheelbarrow made just for her.
I love the Fall! The days are beautiful as everything begins to change around you. I rely on my memories of a time when I lived in the northeast. The New England States experience a wonderful transformation of color. I currently live in the dessert where there are two seasons- very hot and not too hot! I miss the crisp days and the explosion of color!
