  1. Congratulations on ten successful years with your Felting and Fiber Studio!! The silk sari pack colours are so luscious that I would be thrilled to win one of them!! I’ve been experimenting with incorporating silk into my wool felted creations with varying degrees of success. I’m new to your site and if you ever offer a class showing how to use resists to make 3 dimensional felted sculptures I would enjoy taking a course like that.

  2. Congratulations on the anniversary! I love reading your posts and have learned so much. I would pick the Nuno felt with Paper Fabric Lamination class.

  3. Congratulations on ten years of such a valuable resource. I love reading about all your beautiful work.
    I would so love to be able to experiment with all those gorgeous coloured sari silks.
    Here’s to another ten years!
    Thank you.

  4. I would love to take the Concertina Hat class with Terry but my skills are rudimentary. If she thought it better that I take the Felted Bag class, I would feel very lucky indeed!

  5. I would like to take the Concertina Hat class with Terry but I don’t have a lot of experience so would be pleased with the Felted Bag class. I am anonymous above because I hit the wrong button and published my answer before filling out the information.

  6. Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration over the years.
    I would love the sari silk to use.
    Thank you x

  7. Congratulations on your 10 years of inspiration for many of us. I started felting about 10 years ago in New Zealand, and did not stop since . So many possibilities, I love it. Thank you for your inspiration. The silk would be my choice. Lydie

  8. First of all, thank you for continuing with your fascinating posts and keeping us all on our toes. But oh goodness what a difficult choice! I’ll have to go with Helen Dooley’s felting spirals, though, as I originally suggested to her that she run the course when someone was asking how to do this! So – thank you Helen for following through regardless of health issues, and now my broken wrist has healed, I’ll be up for learning your technique!

  9. Thank you for all your postings and congratulations on 10 years well done.I would choose the felted bag class.

  10. That’s another rabbit hole you’ve opened. I’ve just read your very first post and am trying to resist reading them all – wish I’d thought of it during lockdown(s)!
    Although the silk makes my mouth water, I know that I’m unlikely now to make the best use of it, my stash will see me out anyway. So can I go for Helen Dooley’s felting spirals course please.

  11. Thank you for sharing your love of felting! I would love to take a wet felting handbag class! Happy Anniversary!

  12. Happy 10 year Anniversary Ruth! I’ve learned so much from your posts. I’ve seen funny posts and very informative posts as well. Thank you very much for all you’ve shared over the years.
    If I won I’d like to have the Spiral workshop please.
    Here’s to another 10 years of us learning from you!

  13. Congratulations on your anniversary. I have been reading posts for a long while even before I had a smart phone. There is such a wealth of info on the pro boards too. I think that’s what it’s called. If I won I would pick the concertina hat class. Wet felting is my favorite fiber art I just wish it was portable. Good luck everyone!

  14. Congratulations on 10 years! I have enjoyed reading your posts- interesting, informative, and so varied. Thank you for sharing your experiences- successes, failures, your musings and experimentations- I look forward to reading them. So many courses pique my interest, but the concertina hat course has been on my list!

  15. Congratulations on 10 years of such joy and inspiration. I would love to win the sari silk yarns. Thank you so much for filling my head with so many things I would like to create.

  16. Congratulations on your 10th anniversary. I have been enjoying your inspiration now for years. I have collected so many supplies and taken a few classes here in NC. Still have a lot to learn but I would love some of that sari Silk to create with. Thank you all for sharing your creativity and knowledge.

  17. Congratulations and thanks for the giveaway and the very interesting writings, i really appreciate receiving them. I would .be trilled to win and would choose the concertina hat course.

  18. Wow, what an amazing source of inspiration this site is. Coming out of a dark place, with a failed felting course. (On the plus side, I have a yard of pre felt….) I devour the posts on this page, and delve further into the files when I can, and would love the bag, the spiral and the Nuno felt/paper course.

  19. Bună! Încep prin a vă felicita pentru întreaga muncă depusă pe parcursul acestor ani!🥰 Deseori m-am inspirat din lucrările văzute pe această pagină. De aceea aș vrea să vă am alături și anii ce vin.
    Personal, din punct de vedere al cîștigului, ținând cont de engleza mea deficitară, as prefera sa fie ceva material…😜

  20. Wow, how very generous of you and what a great Christmas gift! So difficult to choose!
    I would love to try sari silk. I have never used it before.
    Thank you very much for this opportunity – I really enjoy all your posts.

  21. Happy 10th, FFS! I have been enjoying your posts for the last few years. Thank all of you who share your talent. I wish FFS continued success! I would love to win one of the classes. Print, Stencil and Play with Thickened Dye on Felt looks particularly interesting.

  22. Good inspiration. I took the Consertina hat class by Terri Berri and would love to take her bag class

  23. Congratulations! You are a constant source of information and inspiration. I would really enjoy the spiral class.

  24. Wow, congratulations on 10 years!
    I would enjoy the Wet Felting for Beginners course as its been quite some time since I did any wet felting.
    I love this blog, so informative and I like seeing all the different variations on felting. Amazing work!

  25. Phyllis
    I would love to win any of the prizes. But especially one of the 3 mixed packs of sari silk!
    Congratulations on your 10th Anniversary!

  26. Happy Anniversary! That is a very generous set of prizes. I’m attracted by the silk as I love silk. But it was fun to read through the list of classes too. (To be clear, I’m sticking with the silk as my answer though.) Congratulations on 10 years of felting fun.

  27. Congratulations on your anniversary. It’s hard to believe I have been following you for ten years. I would love to take the hanging spiral class some day.

  28. Ten years is a wonderful milestone and this is a great way to mark it. The sari silk is a great addition to my hand spun and I’ve used up the first bit already and would love to try some of the other varieties, so it’s the sari silk for me. Best of luck to everyone.

  29. WOW! 10 years is quite an accomplishment! I loved Terri’s Concertina Hat class. I learned so much from it and have been making hats ever since I took it. I would love to try my hand at the print with thickened dye class.

  30. Congratulations on supplying all of us with so much knowledge and materials over these 10 years. I am so excited to try the Christmas Tree you so generously showed us how to do! If I should choose a prize it would be the hat/ bag tutorial.

  31. Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary! I enjoy reading all posts and have learned a great deal since I started following the studio. It is a tough decision as to which prize would be best – the classes and the silk are all so tempting. If I had to choose just one, I would pick the sari silk as the colours are so eye catching!

  32. 10 years is an amazing milestone to have reached, congratulations, if I’m lucky enough to be one of the winners I would love to do Helene’s felted spiral course

  33. Congrats on 10 years! I would love the wet felting for beginners online course. I love this community!

  34. Congrats on the 10 year anniversary. I would love to win the Hanging Felted Spiral with Helene Dooley

  35. Congratulations on the 10 years! If I had to choose, I’d do the online felted bag. I need to work on my skills and learn new techniques. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and love of felt with us all.

  36. Nice to hear you have had 10 great years in this vibrant fiber field. Purchased Margilan silk from you, dyed it and made beautiful felt items. Sari silk would be wonderful to work with. Thank you.

  37. Congrats are due for this 10 year anniversary! Wonderful posts!
    I would love to learn free motion stichery on felt.

  38. Not wanting to enter the competition, – if I did, I’d say one of the online classes, but just to say thank you for this forum and all the wonderful information shared. Many thanks, Phyllis

  39. Congratulations on 10 years! AMAZING!!! I’d love the Sari silk but if that prize is grabbed already, I’d be really happy with the Experimental Screen Printing. Thank you!

  40. I would LOVE to win the Nuno Felt with Paper Fabric Lamination course! Congratulations on 10 years, it’s a lovely creative space for all of us 🙂

  41. thanks for your inspiration. All the himts and tricks have been helpful to me. I would love the sari silk!

  42. Congratulations on your ten year anniversary and well done on creating such an interesting and useful website. I love the forum which provides us budding felters with support, inspiration and the opportunity to share our ideas and work.
    If chosen I would love to take the felt bag making course.

  43. Love the idea of the yurts. I live in Ontario so it is unlikely that I will ever see them or do a workshop in them, or overnight in one. Hope your organization thrives with the new model. If my name is selected, I would like to receive the sari silk. Hope everyone is safe and dry.

  44. It is no small accomplishment to succeed for ten years in a niche market. But your variety and attention to quality in product and classes made this possible. I can only imagine all the hours of hard work – but it sure won you many fans including a newcomer like me. Congratulations.
    I would be happy with any of the prizes (who wouldn’t) but the class on Experimental Screen Printing on Felt – really pulls at me.
    I wish you many more happy years in this endeavour – for you and for your customers. Happy holidays toy our team.

  45. Congratulations! I would love to take the hat course! My kids always tease me that everything I make is a “hat” even if it is a bowl or a necklace 🤣. I’ve never actually made a hat so the course would be a great start.

  46. Congratulations on your ten years. I would love to do the spiral hat class but would be grateful for any of the give-aways. Thank you.

  47. Congratulations on 10 years. A very significant milestone. I would love to do the free motion stitching on felt course.

  48. Congrats on ten years Ruth!!!
    Your posts are always such I highlight for me I so appreciate you 💕
    I would love the Sari silk as I have been inspired by your work, to try new things:)
    Hope to be here with you for the next ten years
    Hugs Shoshana 🤗

  49. Happy anniversary!

    And thank you for sharing your knowledge, I love the emails I get.

    I would choose the sari silk please.

    Here’s to the next 10 years! Cheers! 🎉🎉🎉

  50. Happy Anniversary, and so many thanks for sharing so much of your knowledge and skills with everyone. If my name is pulled from the hat I would choose the ‘Experimental Screen Printing on Felt’ please.

  51. Congratulations. I enjoy learning from you all. PRINTING, STENCILING, AND PLAYING WITH THICKENED DYE ON FELT would be my choice. I would like to know where you found the gold sari silk though.

  52. I love your website and would be so happy to win the sari silk package. Congratulations on ten years and thanks so much for this opportunity!

  53. Congratulations on your anniversary. Over the years your blog has given me tips, techniques, food for thought and inspiration. It is the first feed I open in my email list- why? Because it is always positive and makes me feel happy!
    If I win I’d love to do the Nuno felting with paper lamination course as this seems to be the next progression in my felt journey.

  54. Happy 10th Anniversary! I’m so glad I found this wonderful community of fiber friends. I’m honored to be an upcoming contributor (December 13th) too. I would love to win a class, and would probably use it towards Teri’s felted purse class. The Felted Concertina Hat class was so much fun. If you haven’t taken it, put it on your bucket list: it’s a must do!

  55. Happy Anniversary 🎉 I have just discovered you and look forward to following your blog. I would love the opportunity to win the Felt Concertina Hat Tutorial or the Sari Silk Bundle 🌸

  57. May you be sharing your felting joy for many more years! I would be delighted to win the chance to take the bag class with Terri Berry. To all of those saying they’d like to take the hat class but don’t have enough experience…..I had a great experience a year ago taking the hat class without much experience and have three lovely hats that are not technically perfect but I enjoy a great deal!

  58. I am relatively new to felting…a couple of years now, but I love reading your stories and getting more info. I would love to win the hat class. I think it would be a fun way to learn more! Thanks for the time you put into each post! Happy Anniversary!!

I am so busy with other aspects of art life I dip in and out of the forum for inspiration and technical direction and am NEVER disappointed. What a great asset this group has been.
