Through her popular FeltAlive YouTube channel, Kay introduces the world to needle felting with technique videos and action videos of her dolls having fun.

Kay shares the magic of needle felting through her fun and easy-to-follow video workshops. Available online or on DVD, she has thousands of students around the world. Her Felt Alive Felting Needles were first made simply to make her students have an easier time as they learned but needle felters everywhere seem to love them! Kay offers her favorite wool and supplies so her students are sure to get a great start on their own needle felting adventures.

Kay's passion for this fun craft makes her supplies shop a unique place to shop - the products she offers are what she uses to create her own needle felted dolls and she freely shares information and advice to help newcomers to this craft. As a working needle felt artist she understands the importance of quality supplies and strives to keep the craft of needle felting fun, rewarding and affordable!
