I learned to wet felt tulips at my sons morning garden program at a Waldorf school six years ago. A sweet little bunch of babes wiggled and played together as a group of moms played in soapy water. It was love. Kids and wool and handwork… I was sold. As my son grew, we began felting together… wet felted soap, wet felted ‘sunshine’ balls on a hot sunny spring day, needle felted critters and birthday crowns.My inspiration has always drawn from my kids… what can I make for their easter basket? What would they like to see on their birthday crown this year? What critters are we reading about and can I bring it to life in the form of a little felted something?

I bought my first wool from A Wrinkle in Thyme Farm at the Common Ground Fair in those earlier felting days. Then, this past spring, a neighbor invited our family to visit their farm to see the lambs. We realized our homestead was the perfect spot for some sheep. So we bought a few. Ended up with an extra one because, why not! We spent time skirting wool at A Wrinkle in Thyme, went back for Yarn and Yoga. Eventually Marty asked me if I had any interested in carrying on her business and I just knew it was something I wanted to do.

I have spent the past 7 months working along side Marty and Mary Ann. Every Thursday, and as many other days as possible, I have spent learning from them and helping them make kits. As of January 2024 the business is mine, but I still spend every Thursday at their farm using their equipment, space and soaking up some time with them. I am deeply honored and filled with gratitude at the opportunity to carry on Marty’s designs. I look forward to adding my own to the mix in the coming days. I am looking for space in Bethel to open a small storefront and workspace. I plan to continue the Wrinkle in Thyme feeling of community and art within our small town and hope to find more ways to share the love of natural fibers, sustainable farming and handwork with as many people as possible.

Thank you for being here with me.
