Fellow Felters everywhere!
My dear friend, Barb Marr, is hosting a very special event on October 3rd, 2009 to go along with Felt United and the UN's International year of Natural Fibers.
Hope you can join us, the information is listed below. Michigan Felters, I hope you'll make a special effort to make it there. Should be a great day!
Marr Haven information is on my side bar if you'd like to join us for the day. Please do let Barb know as soon as possible.
"Marr Haven Wool Farm of Allegan, MI will host a FELT UNITED event October 3, 2009 from noon until 4 :00 pm.
A large tent will be placed in front of the farm shop for felt makers to exhibit (and sell if you have a Michigan sales tax license). Suzanne Higgs of Hooked On Felt will demonstrate simple felt making for the public and will have several of her stunning felt hats available.
We are inviting all felt makers in our area to participate by making a felt item in the Felt United color theme of red, orange and yellow. A combination of the 3 colors or one of the 3 colors may be used according to the Felt United guidelines with no more than 3% added colors. Photos will be submitted to Felt United for their online exhibit as well as in a multimedia presentation. More information regarding the felt pieces are on the Felt United website.
Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in participating so I can include you in the news releases which I would like to send out by next Monday Sept. 7."
