You can purchase a posy or two of felted forget-me-nots for someone special at the Canberra Region Feltmaker’s Exhibition: Felt Mysterious.
The exhibition is open to the public for one day only on Saturday 10 April, 10am – 4pm at Textile Works in Chifley, ACT.
All proceeds from the posies will be donated to Karinya House, a community based organisation located in the ACT that provides immediate support for women who are pregnant or have new babies and have nowhere else to turn.
See our website for more information about the Forget-me-not posies and the Felt Mysterious exhibition.
The Gentle Roller is a breakthrough in the exhausting and repetitive process of hand rolling felt, assisting you to make beautiful felt without the hard work. It is safe, effective and suitable for the novice or fibre artist – whatever felt you make. It will complement your studio, freeing you for more important activities like planning your next piece or enjoying a well-earned break.
Treat yourself this Mother’s Day.
