The Road Ahead Lies Within

I have met some of the nicest people since joining Etsy a little over two years ago. I have made friends all over the world! How fortunate is that? To chat with someone in France or London, Seattle, Chicago, Colorado Springs? Those are just a few of the places I visit through this wonderful world called Etsy.

Susi, from http://www.Crafts2Cherish.etsy.com is a special friend I met over a year ago. She lives in Dublin, Ireland.
Susi gave me one of the best gifts I could ever receive. I opened up my Etsy convos this afternoon and found a message from Susi. She asked me to visit her treasury. I did, knowing I was in for a delightful tour of wonderful shops, and to my surprise..not only was the treasury fabulous, but in her comments, Susi said "To our lovely Anita".
Thank you dear Susi and Lili, I am honored and blessed to have met both of you.



Susi's shop profile
Welcome!
We are textile artists, working primarily in feltmaking. Felted wool fabric is one of the most ancient textiles. Our entire collection is created using the highest quality of natural and sustainable materials.
Wool comes from an annually renewable source. Each year, the wool on an animal grows back, and each spring the coat is shorn once again ready for summer.We use a variety of raw wools which are selected for their felting characteristics, texture and wearability.They are hand-dyed and hand carded by us to provide a wide palette range, and then hand-felted by layering and building up colour and texture to achieve a soft and flexible felted item.
Our accessoires are created to work across all seasons, and last for many seasons – a counterpoint to disposable consumerism.
CRAFTSMANSHIP & ARTISTRY
Though the process of felting does not necessitate exceedingly expensive materials or equipment and just about anyone can add soapy water to fleece and agitate it into a felted mass, control of the outcome and well crafted, quality felt is achieved through years of experience and learning.
Keep having fun and continue to deliver high quality ethical products,it’s our way of thinking. All things are one of a kind and handmade with great care and attention to detail.
