 I create and design my "Woolies" from 100% felted wool.  I find beautiful patterned wool sweaters and fabric in thrift stores. My craft gives new life to the sweaters and fabric that I use.  It is also satisfying that I can make comforting products such as pillows, purses, Christmas stockings, ornaments and tea cozies.  

  Several years ago, I read a newspaper article about this craft.  Since then, I have formed my own company. I sell my Woolies at craft shows that feature handmade products. I am a member of The Colorado Crafters Guild and TACtile Textile Art Center and the Center for the Arts in Evergreen.
