I started felting when I was hanging out with my sister-in-law and my young kids at her cottage on a beautiful lake in southern Ontario, Canada. I was immediately fascinated by the organic, mysterious process of making fabric with my own hands.

Well, everything around the cottage that wasn't tied down, was felted! Lots and lots of rocks were felted, which progressed to soaps and a felter was born.

Each piece that I make is unique. There is NO way I could make two the same; alike maybe, but not the same. There is no quest for perfect. I love wavy edges and rippled texture. Organic. Natural.

I am a very proud Canadian and I wanted to celebrate all that I love through Heritage Felt.
