“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us
really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”
Welcome to Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts. I’m Sandy, lover of Yorkshire Tea, my dog (Gin) and all things woolly!
I am also the creator and designer of needle felting tutorials, workshops, needle felted creations and award winning needle felting kits.
Now, I know that needle felting is the best craft in the world but why not come in and decide for yourself. Just grab yourself a handful of wool and your felting needle and I will show you how, step by creative step.
So what’s the big deal?
Needle felting has taken the crafting world by storm and it is easy to see why. It is unbelievably accessible and you need just one thing, enthusiasm!
No tricky patterns. No sewing. No wires. No expensive fancy equipment.
You don’t have to be artistic or even creative.
It is incredibly portable, light and requires very little space; just a needle felting kit of your own or, a stash of wool, foam pad, a felting needle and you are good to go.
I had always loved arts and crafts but there was never one that really grabbed hold of me the way needle felting did. Once I discovered it I have never looked back!
What are you looking for in a craft?
Do you want to try a wonderfully addictive new craft that has no limits, from absolute beginners to advanced crafters?
Are you yearning to unlock your creativity and be inspired?
Like myself, do you enjoy a laid-back approach to crafts?
Do you want to learn an affordable craft that doesn’t involve sewing?
Are you craving creative ‘me’ time away from the noise of daily life and routine?
If your answer was yes to any of the above then needle felting is for you!
If you are brand, spanking new to needle felting then hop over to the dos and dont’s page before you get started.
I am a passionate believer that arts and crafts,of any kind, can help soothe the mind and soul, providing a welcome and important distraction from the stresses of our day to day lives
The joy and excitement at seeing a handful of wool transformed into a beautiful animal or sculpture, using just a barbed needle, is undeniable and I wanted to share what I have learned along the way. Usually with a cup of Yorkshire Tea in my hand.
Go easy on yourself
Don’t strive for perfection at first attempt and embrace the happy accidents. Instead, strive for enjoyment, a sense of achievement and the rest will follow. Don’t let fear of failure (you know, the stuff we were taught in school that has stuck ever since) hold you back: We will always fail at what we don’t try.
If you have never seen needle felting in all its glorious action then watch my video tutorials. Better still, grab hold of all that unused needle felting gear that’s sitting staring at you and saying, “Please make me!”, invite enthusiasm as you pass and get started; no more excuses!
Workshops – Tea, cake and creativity!
Where am I in the world
I can be found most days in my home studio, in rural Lincolnshire UK, where all Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts needle felting kits, felted animals tutorials and workshops are created and put together; with a little help from my family. However, my daughter only works for bribes (food usually does it) and hubby has a wool allergy… I know, right! Usually it’s me and the dog plus lots of Yorkshire tea! Unfortunately no unicorn or fairy helper in sight. In fact, I am actually beginning to wonder whether they actually exist at all…
