It's Official!

I can finally tell you my bit of news as everything is now official! About a year and a half ago, I was contacted by the chairperson of the Espanola Fibre Arts Festival, Espanola, Ontario, and asked if I would be interested in teaching there next October.

This festival showcases fibre artists and their work.  The festival team selects unique and authentic instructors, artisans and suppliers from all across the country. From bobbin lace to wood working, they feature a variety of workshops, demonstrations & fibre arts related activities. 

My Fibre Art Pendants were of interest as needle felting had been requested by past attendees to the festival. So, I will be teaching a class on the techniques I use in making the pendants. These techniques can also be used as a jumping off spot to making other small projects, which I will also share.

Also check the festival out on Pinterest.


  1. The first time I visited here was when Susan (Plays with Needles) mentioned your work in a post. It doesn't surprise me that you were asked to teach making them. Lucky for those that will attend your class. Congratulations!!
    Happy Valentine's Day,

  2. Congrats on the well deserved recognition.

  3. Congratulations, Judy! How wonderful for you!

  4. Congrats! You'll have fun, I'm sure.

  5. Fabulous news Judy! Congratulations!!

  6. Had to Google Map to see where Espanola is and alas it's too far away. I know you will be a huge success at the festival and we'll be expecting a full report afterwards.
