Great Package
When I found out about needle felting I wanted to give it a try. After looking into several kits I decided to invest into the super deluxe kit and the membership! Wow...the kit includes anything you could possibly need to start, including plenty of the super duper felting needles. The workshop videos are great to work along and make learning the basic techniques a breeze. This is an amazing package!

I have been needle felting for some years and recently have been conducting workshops. I thought I was doing pretty well but Kay's tequniques and secrets are amazing. Thanking you Kay for helping to make me a better artist and teacher. I will be recommending by students to Felt Alive for needles and wool at every opportunity. Thank You Kay.

You will love it
I am so grateful I took the plunge and signed up for the Felters Workshop. I have learned so much and the videos Kay has done are easy to follow and understand. I have had the best time making dolls and giving them away as gifts. People are amazed at the creativity and detail that come out in the dolls. I have started doing some of the other classes and continue to enjoy every minute. The supply orders I have put in have been shipped quickly and the materials are high quality. The groups are fun too. It's nice to have some peers doing the same craft and seeing their work. Felting is a great way to spend a cold harsh winter indoors.

I have been a member of this workshop for about a year and I have to say it was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I have learned so much and have created some wonderful dolls! I am so glad I found Kay and her awesome classes! Thank you Kay for teaching me how to make dolls and all the other classes like the Santa class etc.

Sign up NOW!
I have watched countless felting videos, whether on Youtube or felting sites or what have you and I am confident in saying that these videos are the best out there. The projects are easily amended to fit your own taste, and Kay's ability to break the basics down into easily followed steps makes them easy to follow. Also, whereas some videos have er, 'holes' in them, Kay has an uncanny sense of when to elaborate on a technique or procedure so that the student is rarely left wondering. It's also pretty terrific to be able to contact Kay via email with any questions you do have. If you have reached that dreaded impasse where you have got the basics down and are now ready to really branch out and begin to produce felting that is structurally sound *and* uniquely your own, get this workshop! I can't begin to say how much I have learned and continue to learn from these wonderful videos.

I LOVE L O V E L O V E the workshop! This was the best $79.00 I’ve ever spent hands down.
Let me first start off by saying…..I LOVE L O V E L O V E the workshop! This was the best $79.00 I’ve ever spent hands down. The felting community here is awesome and helpful. The videos are very informative and top notch along with being fun to watch, you can go from novice to advance in no time at all once you see the concept of needle felting and best of all Kay does not leave out any detail. The starter kit is just a bonus as far as I’m concerned. I am very pleased with the overall value. I recommend the workshop without any hesitation!

Doll workshop video
Doll Workshop is the best thing that has happen to me, hobby wise. I love in and have enjoyed many hours of felting and learning . I love all your products, they get the job done perfectly. I however did try a core wool that was not from this site and was very disappointed . That taught me a lesson. Only buy through Felt Alive :)

Winter is now GREAT!
The videos are so easy to understand. Step by step information. I am so very pleased with the workshop and the added bonus of a great kit. This deal cannot be beat. The price is really more than fair. I am using my ipad for now and it works well. And, with my long Alaskan winter just really starting this will keep the chill out and the blues away.

What a Wonderful Workshop!
I'm so happy I joined the NFW! It's so great to talk with other wool felter's and to see their work.

Work shops
The work shops that Kay's put together are brilliant. If I can follow the anyone can. It has inspired me to do my own small work shops on needle felting. I would recommend these to anyone interested in learning the techniques. She is patient and explains everything easily. Because its video'd you can follow what she does.

I have learned so much, immediately after joining this workshop. Best money I have ever spent! The value is undeniable. My work has really blossomed as a direct result of just one of Kay Petals videos! I cant imagine what I will be capable of creating after I watch all of the videos! The other artists in this workshop are so welcoming and inspiring! My only regret is that I didn't join this sooner! Thanks so much!

Incredibly instructive and supportive
I have been interested in soft sculpture for years. I took Kay's needle felting workshops, dolls, dogs, witches, and others and find her instructions easy to follow, she shares good tips and is very supportive. I highly recommend these workshops. It feels like your own private community of artists from beginners to experienced and everything in between.

Amazing Workshop, Great Value
Kay Petal is an amazing sculptor and great teacher and her instructional videos can teach anyone the techniques for bringing out the magic in wool. This workshop provides hours of instruction for building basic shapes into bodies, creating amazing facial expressions, adding clothing and so much more. The great part is that you can go back to particular sections of interest and review as much as you want and need.
