Wild Women Felt Alive!

Felt Alive Needle Felted Doll Workshop
Rosie's Wild Woman Studio Depoe Bay, Oregon
January 2010

I had the privilege of sharing the magic of needle felting dolls with a fabulous group of creative women in Depoe Bay, Oregon. None of the group had ever needle felted before but everyone managed to bring the wool to life, creating a zany lineup of characters in various stages of completion.

I was so proud of everyone for shedding their preconceived notions of "what" or "who" they wanted to create and allowing the wool to lead the way! We shared many laughs and some very serious moments of silent poking.

These two Lovebirds came to life side by side - created by two best friends - Linda and Rosie.

And to celebrate Rosie's birthday on the last day of the workshop, we enjoyed a lovely dinner out. Sharing a night with new friends and their families was a special treat for Ethan and me - being strangers in town and all! We got the inside scoop of the fun to be had in this area. And because none of us got enough fun, I'll be back near the end of February for a one day Felt Alive Mutts workshop! I can't wait!!
Thanks Wild Women!
