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.
