Hello, I’m Rosie
I’m a maker of all things needle felted and I enjoy what I do immensely.
I come from a family of people (my dad and his mother) who made dresses and skirts and tailored suits. I fondly remember the industrial sewing machines my Dad had in our garage, his ‘workshop’ and all of the bolts of fabric and boxes of zippers and buttons and thread.
As a result of my childhood, sewing and fiddling about with crafts is part of my daily activities.
FROM DOLLS & PUPPETS TO NEEDLEFELTING
I’ve made cloth dolls and puppets but my discovery of the art of needle felting is the place where my passion lies.
I love watching, reading/learning about all kinds of birds, and therefore I needle felt them all the time… especially ravens.
I teach needle felting at Wistow Gallery in rural Leicestershire, and the Jesus Centre in Leicester city centre, and I love it! I love meeting people that have no experience with the craft and to hear their initial doubts about their abilities to needle felt. They always surprise themselves with the beautiful pieces they create.
My website is, hopefully, a place of hope and encouragement to all crafters out there that would like to try their hand at needle felting.
Please check my 2019 Needle Felting Workshops schedule, contact me if you’d like to join, book early as spaces do fill up quite quickly!
