Hello Tin Thimble fans! Have you heard the news? Felt Fest 2016 has been scheduled for October 7th, 8th and 9th!
Are you as excited as we are?
We are thrilled to welcome Marilou Moschetti back to the Thimble, we haven’t had her in the shop in too long. She will be teaching a super-unique and inspiring workshop called Dimensional Techniques for Making Felt.
We are also honored and eager to introduce Jo Ann Manzone to this year’s event! Jo Ann will be visiting us from Ashland Oregon and will be instructing students in how to paint fabric and create felted embellishments for garments.
Our darling needle felting instructor Nanette Scott will be walking students through some adorable projects. Carin is still deciding on workshops to teach, but let’s be honest, everything Carin teaches is fantastic, so we can’t wait to see what we put on the schedule for her. And of course, Sharon and Lisa will also be in the house. Sharon and Lisa are still deciding on which workshops to teach, and we’d love to hear from you! If there is a specific workshop you’d like to take during Felt Fest, comment below and let us know!
In addition to the exciting variety of instructors, we’ll also have some local vendors participating in the weekend.
Lastly, we’re very happy to let our students and customers know that this year’s event will include a party on Saturday, October 8th at 6:00pm. During this little soiree, the Felt Fest instructors, vendors, students and customers can mingle, peek at the instructor’s future classes and talk creativity! Tickets for this party are $5 and can be purchased when you register for Felt Fest classes.
Toni and Hannah are working diligently to finalize the details and we promise you’ll receive an email as soon as the Felt Fest schedule is ready to go! If you’re feeling antsy with excitement, call us at 916-652-2134 to be placed on a list to receive a phone call when details are polished!
