Cloverleaf Art & Fibre Merry Midwinter Needlefelting Workshop

"Hello friends of Cloverleaf Art & Fibre,

We've set the date for another of Linda's popular needlefelting workshops, just in time for the festive season.

Painting with Fleece:  "Merry Midwinter"
Saturday, November 27, 2010
1:00 - 4:00 pm
Henderson Library
1-1050 Henderson Highway in Winnipeg.

Looking for a new craft for the winter, or something different for seasonal gift giving? This is your opportunity to explore texture, colour and design through the art of needlefelting. The technique is simple – strands of coloured fleece are applied to a woollen fabric background using a special barbed needle – but the possibilities are endless. Linda will provide a choice of designs as inspiration for the picture you will create in this class.

Your new skills can be used to decorate clothing and accessories , to embellish quilts, and to create your own unique fibre art.

The fleece provided is from the Leafhaven backyard flock of purebred Shetland sheep, in a delightful range of natural and hand-dyed colours.

Cost: $45 (includes fabric, designs, fleece in a variety of colours, and needles)
To register, email
