Yesterday I stopped in at a wonderful fiber shop in Big Rock, IL called Esther's Place. It is a feast for the eyes and a tactilely soothing experience. The Lehrer family owns a farm, sheep, and this lovely B&B/ fiber arts studio. I can't wait to return to take some classes. Natasha Lehrer was a demonstrator last week at the Kishwaukee Valley Art League in DeKalb and truly opened up my eyes to the art of wool felting. Her work is beyond that of what I usually associate with felting - very artistic and creative. Check out the blogs for Natasha and her mom, Donna, as well as their Facebook page
