The membership area is divided into the “core training” and different chapters or modules, each dedicated to a different topic. When you enter the members’ area, that’s exactly what you see.
Of course, I’ll be creating new...
Did you know you can care for your felted items to keep them beautiful for a long time? That – when well cared for – felted pieces can be passed onto the next generation? And there’s actually nothing to it. Check out the video to see how easy it is.
