Bands: Betz in Wisconsin (#103)

My inspirational swipe board....and a small batch of my cupcake pincushions!

Betz would like to welcome you to her studio! Betz combines the ancient technique of felting with today's cast-away sweaters to create what she calls "felted wool, artfully stitched". Betz has been experimenting with felting and fulling wool for more than 10 years. With a background in children's apparel design the results are fun, fresh and whimsical.

Notes from Betz: I am a textile and apparel designer. I also have my own website, where I feature my work in recycled felted wool. My studio is a sun room accessed by french doors off of our family room. I can seclude myself from the mine field of legos lurking right outside my door. On the flip side, when I make my own creative catastrophe in my studio, I can leave it behind closed doors.

The card that best fits my studio: Bands.

As you can see, there are a lot of windows and natural light, which I love!

The armoire is my stash of supplies...
Betz has a Etsy store, if you're interested in her felted wool beauties!
