"Felting On Denim"
On March 19, 2009, the RED HAT HOOTERS met at my home. My friend Micki Donch and I put our heads together and decided that it would be nice if we taught members of the Red Hat Hooters to needle felt. I prepared kits made up of a small denim bag, felting needles and fleece. Eight ladies decided to try needle felting. I asked Micki who had taken all of my previous weaving and felting classes to work with these students. We had a great day. Micki's husband, Vinnie, brought 4 pizzas from Costco for us to have for lunch. We also served apple pie and ice cream along with soda and apple juice. It was a fun day for all of us.
