Needle Felting with Moxie

Last Thursday I was at the opening of the needle felting show at gallery hanahou. It was so cool!

I got to meet Hine Mizushima, one of my fiber art heros, for the first time. Here’s a quick iPhone pic I took of her section of the show:


All of the pieces in the show were amazing and really different—here’s a look at the sculptural works of Kit Lane.


Moxie was nice enough to squeeze me into her sold-out workshop on Saturday. I had never tried needle felting before, and it was so much fun! It’s really like working with clay in many ways. I gained a new appreciation for the incredible pieces that these artists create, and I went home with this little bug and a photo of me and Moxie:


(We’re standing in front of her neat-o pieces in the show, but you can’t really see them in the photo.) Moxie was an excellent teacher—if you ever have a chance to learn from her, I recommend it!

The needle felting show is up through the end of March at gallery hanahou‐check it out if you’re in NYC!

  1. I have a needle felting kit. I really should pull it out and give it a try. It’s a monkey, so it will be loved no matter how ungainly I make it!

  2. I’m insanely jealous that you’re at hanahou :( I reeeeeally want to go, but it’s in another country for me.

  3. That bug reminds me of 2 of your pieces. When you did flat knitting, and the train at your show. You should add a little tutorial of how to needle felt in the How-To section of your site.
