Meet The Supplier and a Giveaway

Fibre 3, 2, 1

Q-3 Three types of fibre you can’t live without?
Angelina fibres, I did not think I would like this fibre until I started using it and now love the bit of sparkle it adds. Also merino pre felt, and wool tops, especially dyed merino.

Q-2 Two tools you use all the time?
Twisted felting needles because they felt evenly throughout your piece and leave a smoother finished surface. The other tool has to be my Janome sewing machine, I love to be able to make practical but beautiful things like blinds and bags with cotton and linen fabrics.

Q-1 One fibre art technique you love the most?
Wet felting, both pictures and 3D forms. I enjoy the creating, and rinsing off the soap to see the final piece is great. Even if it’s not quite how you expected there is always something a little bit lovely about what has been made.

    Great to find someone in the UK who sells such a broad range of colour prefelt, can’t believe I haven’t come across Heidi Feathers before! Thanks to the feltingandfiberstudio, as well, your posts are always useful and informative.

  2. Lyn says:

    Thanks go to the forum for bringing Heidi Feathers to our attention. Lovely shop with gorgeous stock! I didn’t know that there were twisted felting needles – fascinating.

  3. Kate Smithers says:

    I’ve bought items from Heidi Feathers before. Their items are great and are always sent out promptly so you don’t have to wait too long for your goodies. Lovely to learn a little bit more about the shop here 🙂

  4. Laura says:

    No fair! I’m in the US so I’m not eligible.

  5. I am not eligible for the giveaway, as I live in the U.S., but this looks like a good supplier.

  6. Felicity says:

    I can’t open first two links (ebay link is fine) to Heidi Feathers shops unfortunately!…Thanks for an interesting post!

  7. Leonor says:

    I’ve bought from Heidi Feathers before and can attest to their quality. I’d love to win this! This would be Fate nudging me to try wet felting 😀

  8. Ellie @ Feltabulous says:

    An interesting interview and always good to find more UK suppliers. I love wet felting although haven’t done any for a while. I must make an efforr and get back to it!
    Best wishes
    Ellie

  9. luvswool says:

    It’s always fun to find a new felting supplier on-line, which is my preferred way of purchasing felting supplies. Like Lyn, I had never heard of twisted needles for needle-felting. If I win, I have a designated UK resident!

  10. Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

    The ebay link worked ok for me but not the other two. All the fibers look great. The colors and weight of the prefelt look especially nice. the kits are a great idea for someone who wants to give wet felting a try. I’m in the US and have these supplies, but would be happy to let one of my UK friends have the prize if I were to win. 🙂

  11. wendy says:

  14. I’m moving to England! I could have it sent to my fiancé for me! I’ve ordered from Heidi Feathers too and it’s been fast service to the US. Hope I can win!

      Teri, I won’t even say what I thought ‘FFS’ stood for, but it took me a minute 🙂

  20. Jo Campbell says:

    What a great giveaway. Hadn’t heard of Heidi Feathers before but will be having a good look – already taken with the hand dyed silk tops.

  21. Thank you all for your kind comments. It’s good to see some of you who already know about Heidifeathers and it’s always good to meet newcomers, both to felting and Heidifeathers. Good luck with the giveaway and we wish you all the best for your felting futures.

  22. louisa_ says:

    What a lovely kit – the rolling mat looks far sturdier and more useful than the little flimsy sushi mat I use.

    It’s always good to hear about different suppliers, especially ones that stock silk fibres — thanks for the interview.

    The colours in this kit are sumptuous. Your blog has given me loads of new ideas. I love what you’ve done with the scrap pieces. I quilt and it reminds me of scrap quilting- both a great way to recycle and prevent waste.
