SupercalifragilisticexpiNacogdoches!

Howdy, Y'all! I just got back from visiting Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. While in Nacogdoches, I gave two felting workshops, one to the students and one to the community. I had so much fun getting to know the lovely Texans, and working with all these new people that were just absolutely fantastic. During the workshops we made felt, dyed the fleece with kool aid, and did some embroidery and stitching. Here are a few photos from the experience.




Here you see silk organza in the felt. This gal wanted to try the "inlay" and the organza took beautifully!


This is Professor McAdams attempting a flat piece of felt. Her inlay looks fabulous! Professor McAdams, you did great!

Thank-you so much to Lauren and Christian, and all the students and community members who had me for a visit in Nacogdoches. Your town is lovely and I really enjoyed meeting all of you. Take care and I hope to see you again, either in Texas or way up here in Wisconsin!

I feel humbled by your felt-teaching abilities. I guess the bulky carry-on was worth it!
