New England Felting Supply

As you can see...

 


...this store is an absolute mecca for felters!

 


Look at all of the colors!

 


Imagine being able to touch everything, too!

 


They even carry kits for special projects like this one.

 


Here I am with my friends Dawn and Sharon...

 


...and look at Lindy, Debbie, Dawn, Sharon and Tylar's beaming faces (and large bags full of fibery goodness)!!

 


Many of you have probably ordered products from New England Felting Supply online...

...or visited their booth at a Sheep and Wool Festival a time or two.

It's an altogether different animal getting to visit the store in person...

...and I know I'll never be the same!! :)

Of course we 'needed' to make two stops there...

...once on the way into the "Fling" and once mid-week to stock up during their marvelous sale hours.

If you're ever in New England, make sure you take the time to visit this felter's paradise...

...and bring along a big carrying bag!! :)

Cherish your Aladdin's Cave of suppliers - there aren't all that many of them!

Heather Woollove said...

Rachel--It's the first shop of its kind I've ever been in!

Oooh, jealous - I'd love to go and have a look at all that colour and fluff! I keep meaning to give felting a go, it's about time I got on with it!

Looks heavenly to me and I'm not even a felter. Nothing is more fun that being with a group of friends at a great location like that shop. Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

I can't say I've ever seen a felting supply store. It looks like loads of fun. :-)

Heather Woollove said...

Yes-Pinkundine...It's time you took the plunge!:)
Ally--You're right...being with people who understand the 'allure of wool' is awesome! ;)
Kathryn--It was SO much fun!!

These are gorgeous photos of a gorgeous shop, Heather! The hurricane may have created some havoc on our trip, but it did allow me the chance to go BACK to NEFS on Monday! (Yep, it cost me once again :)
It was SOOOO fun to get to meet you at the Fling!

Wow, pretty pictures! I'm not even a felter and I got all excited. That's awesome!

Spinster Beth said...

That's gorgeous ... baskets of roving, like you'd see baskets of produce!

Vivian said...

Wow, those bags! Wish I can be there to fill a few of them.

Your Neighborhood Park hat is simply amazing, and all those hats in the reception, creativity abound!

Heather Woollove said...

Lindy--You lucky girl, you!! Yes--it was SO WONDERFUL to get to meet you and spend time with you last week!!
Paula, Beth and Vivian--Thanks! Yes--it was such a terrific store!

Fiona said...

How wonderful Heather! I've been to NEFS..never an inexpensive excursion...and alwyas worth every penny! What stands out to me in your pictures, is being able to go with wooly friends, with women who get the fiber thing, and have so much fun going, together! Love reading your posts...have started wondering if I might be able to make the Fling in 2013....

Heather Woollove said...

Fiona--Oh yes, please!! It's such fun...and it would be so nice to spend a week in your sweet company!

Hello - this seems to be an amazing place. I have already read about it in Andrea Grahams blog. Wonderful - just as "Wollknoll" in Germany. Greetings and thank you for your compliment according to my skirt in green.... Angelika

Heather Woollove said...

Angelika--Yes...I think it's very much like Wollknoll! Thank you for visiting my blog!

Ooo looks WAY more tempting than a sweet shop... xx

Heather Woollove said...

Deborah...and to make it worse, it's just a few doors down from a homemade ice cream store with the best ice cream I've ever eaten! How about strawberry-basil or salted caramel custard?!?
