You don't have to use the Woolly Sheep pattern in this class. Any Critter Pattern Works pattern will work as well and it is recommended to take the felting appliques class at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival (Hampton VA). .
Neutral colored light weight wools. These are designer wools that are used to make fancy hand tailored suits. The colors are black, navy, brown, tans, camels, off white and beiges and gray in pinstripes, textures (like subtle plaids) and solids. I cut them into an assortment that a quilter would appreciate, from light to dark. These pieces are at least 15" square. These fabrics show off your embroidery, using bright colored threads and rovings (wool fiber) in contract to the neutral fabrics, with the Crazy Sheep/Woolly Sheep patterns. .You can also choose roving (fibers) at our booth at beginning of the show, too. There will be a better assortment of textures for you in the booth. We also stock the felting tools and foam at the shows.
The 5 (or more) rovings colors can be ordered here. I have more different textures of roving for sheep than are pictured of the roving page.
I decided not to order the pearl cottons which are available at Michael's. Although I used size #8 throughout the two quilts, I have recently started working with size #5 which is a little thicker.
Let me know (email@example.com) if you would prefer me to make up kits for this class with the felting tool, fibers, wool fabrics, some lengths of pearl cotton in assorted colors since the class starts before the show opens. No shopping time.
