For Our Needle Artists

This month on Makers’ with Vickie our friend, Vickie Howell gives an “Artfelt®” tutorial on how to make a wearable art piece using our hugely popular, Holey Scarf kit.

Using simple, easy-to-follow steps you’re just a draft, tack, and dryer cycle away from creating a head-turning accessory — and in just a few hours! You’ll be giddy over how how the saturated colors of the gorgeous roving mix and meld as you lay out pieces and then begin the felting process — it’s like painting with fiber, but without the requirement of being artistically inclined. Here’s the scoop!
