Lana Socia - Fiber Artist

I just had to share these photos with everyone. These fabulous needle felted figures are made by Lana Socia of Howell, Michigan. Her business name is "Raven Oaks" and she is the new owner of my former shop out at the Michigan Renaissance Festival.
Not only does Lana create the most amazing work , she is a delightful and lovely person and is a member of the "Black Sheep Weavers Fiber Guild" based out of Hartland, Michigan. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a website or a blog at this time.
She has such a wonderful variety of merchandise, from the beautiful felted flower pins (above) to small area rugs (shown below) and of course her many different and cleverly crafted figures.
Along with her beautifully executed wool felt pieces she does rug hooking, makes hand dyed wool (seeing her delicious dyed wools sure makes me want to take up knitting), and she also offers supplies and classes.


Please stop by and check out her work (and her new shop!) when you attend the Michigan Renaissance Festival. I wish her all the best with her new venture and hope it brings her as much joy and as many fond memories for the future as it has for me.

Wow, she really does do good work. I loved the little flower pin and the pumpkin. Glad you found a good replacement for your shop.

I'm sure you feel so much better about leaving your shop if you like the person who is taking it up behind you!
