Felted Wool Pincushion

Last week I had the opportunity to take a “Beginning Wool” class at the Serendipity Quilt Shop in Dagsboro, Delaware.

This shop was a real treat to visit and taking a class was just an added bonus. The teacher, Lenny Truitt was so knowledgeable and covered a broad range of topics about using felted wool including dying and embroidery techniques.

The best part of the trip was that my friends Anne and Donna also took the class and we got to spend the evening before at Donna’s condo on the beach.

The pattern is called Winter Blossom by American Homestead.

We have asked Lenny to come and teach a workshop this summer for the NeedleChasers of Chevy Chase quilt guild. We won’t have as much time to sew a pincushion, and so we are considering this smaller project:

I can’t wait to do another project using felted wool!
