Are ready to see what needle felting is all about but not sure where to start?

I've been helping people get started needle felting for nearly 10 years and I'd love to help you.

Learn HOW


The best way to learn is to join me at my Felting Pad in my Felt Alive Video Tutorials and follow along as I teach you the fundamentals of needle felting. Not only will you learn amazing techniques, you'll learn about wool, felting needles and supplies as you bring these three fun and easy projects to life.

I recommend starting with The ABCs of Needle Felting

Three FREE comprehensive video tutorial projects - each easy enough for beginners.

A. Start with Felt Alive Pixies


The moment the wool smiles and blushes at you, you'll be hooked on needle felting forever!

2 1/2 hours of needle felting magic!

C. Finally Make Some Garden Art


You learned how to needle felt without using wire armatures in Pixies and Fairies but in Garden Art, you'll learn the basics of working over wire. Plus you'll learn so many fun tricks while bringing worms and mushrooms to life.

What About Those Felting Needles?

felt alive color-coded felting needles


If you are anything like me when I first got started, I was confused about what needles to use.  Those needles you see me using in the workshops were made especially for you - we color-coded them to make it easy to follow along.  Plus they are so comfortable with their cushioned grips and they are included in ALL of our needle felting kits.  

Of course you'll learn more about these fun tools, how to handle them safely and and their various uses in my videos.  Learn More HERE

Here's some of what you will find in Felt Alive Kits and Starter Packs:

Core Wool Batting Many of our kits include at least 1 oz of core wool batting. Core wool is wool batting that has not been dyed and may contain a bit of vm (vegetable matter from the farm.) It is a great all-purpose needle felting wool that is most often used for making the core parts of projects that will be covered with an outer layer of dyed wool.



wool batting for needle felting Felt Alive Needle Felting Wool is included in all of our kits. It handles much like our core wool batting, our Felt Alive batting is dyed in a fun variety of colors including our popular flesh colors - a favorite for needle felted doll makers. It can be needle felted over core wool parts or just used to sculpt entire pieces. FA Needle Felting Wool is also great for flat/tapestry felting and even works super for traditional wet felting.


wool roving While merino roving can be used for sculpting, the fine fiber and long strands make it time-consuming and difficult. We include it in some of our kits and it's used mainly for hair for dolls and fur for animals.


color-coded felting needles with handles Felt Alive Color-Coded Felting Needles included in every kit. Felting needles come in a variety of sizes for different uses but they look nearly identical. Felt Alive needles are color-coded with cushioned grips - not only are they super-comfortable to use - they are easy to tell apart!


foam pads for needle felting Foam Needle Felting Pads are included in every kit. Our high-density foam pads will stand up to many, many hours of needle felting fun while providing a stable work surface where your creations will come to life.


felting sticks for needle felting Felting Sticks are included in every kit. They are useful for many things including making tubular shapes.
