Needle felting 101 is a 14 page e-booklet; it explains the basics of the art of needle felting, felting needles and wool, plus a directory of felting terms and definitions. This book is photo-illustrated and contains links to needle felting sites for reference and inspiration. Written by Laura Lee Burch, needle felting and textile artist; Laura has also written two sewing books: Sew Magical for Baby and Sew Magical for Kids.

Needle felting is a great craft for all ages; with only a few supplies: wool, a sponge as a felting surface and felting needles; you can sculpt wool into dolls, puppets, toys, bags, ornaments, felted paintings, masks and many other items. A craft for all ages!


I am an American textile Artist living in the Middle East. I’m from Greenfield, Indiana and I live in Jaffa, Israel; My family and I, our four cats, two turtles, and our Bull Terrier Louie live a multi-cultural life. Ever since I can remember I’ve been making things! I’m inspired by my three girls and a love for art, animals, gardening, travel and photography. I use the textile technique of needle felting to create animals, dolls, masks and puppets. I started sewing costumes and making toys for my girls when they were little; after we moved to Israel I started a business and wrote two books based on making beautiful things for children. Today my artistic focus has changed to making art for adults who are in touch with their inner child! I have also been painting portraits and still lifes and accept commissions.
