A Fistful of Felt
Pat Pawlowicz of Rogersville raises goats and sheep for fleece, making stuffed animals, figurines, jewelry and more out of the fluffy material. Pawlowicz uses a technique called needle felting, which results in interlocked fibers thanks to a special notched needle, and she offers classes and workshops to those interested in learning.
With her home and studio in Rogersville, Pawlowicz also sells kits to help artists of all ages get started on needle felting. She recently released her first book, A Fistful of Felt, with lots of different needle felting projects, and has three more books in the works, including unusual projects that feature wool and more woolly facts.
