Thanks! I always think of that as "tracking" - and that's what I ask for when at the post office too! I always add tracking to my packages! =^..^=

Just reading through the rules again and I do not understand this part:

Quote: 4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizer with a DC number when you do.
End Quote

What is a DC number??

My computer died last week and I'm still in the process of getting back to where I was, but that gave me the perfect opportunity to put aside some work projects and work on my swap!

I finished it this afternoon and I'm quite pleased! Hope MissingWillow will be as pleased!!

Won't be sending it off just yet, but soon it will be on its journey home!! =^..^=

275  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best and or cheapest place to buy needle felting supplies? on: June 10, 2012 04:47:23 AM
Check Yahoo groups for fiber groups - sometimes they are people who own just a few sheep or are just willing to sell fiber for less than you might find it elsewhere. Sometimes you will have to wash the wool, but that isn't that difficult. I get most of my fiber from Mielke's - they have a great selection and their quality is always excellent. They do have sampler packs of fiber, but they aren't "cheap" - you get a lot of fiber in those samplers.

I used to buy my needles on eBay and was always looking for the best bargain. That makes sense when you're first learning needle felting, but there is a big difference in the quality of needles available. A good needle has the barbs positioned closer to the tip and the first barb is 1/8th of an inch from the tip. I have been trying to grab the link to where I get my needles, but the internet is being slow. #38stars are probably the most useful of needles. I use #38 stars and #42s more than my other needles.

Foam pads can vary in quality too and they really are not the best work surface for needle felting, but they certainly are the most commonly used. Covering the pad with some flannel can be helpful. The flannel will need to be replaced from time to time and it can help cut down on the foam pad grabbing fiber when it's poked.

He's so CUTE!!!! =^..^=

The way to attach a top hat is to add just a bit of fiber where the brim meets the crown and needle there - not at the edge of the brim. I bet you could flatten out the brim by needling where the crown (upright part of the hat) and brim meet. It's a great hat as it is and matches his bowtie!!!

Glad that I was of some help too!!  Cheesy

Thanks!!!  Cheesy  Cheesy

The background is purchased felt and the mound upon which they stand is a wet felted pouch that I made. There is also a dollar store "moss rock". =^..^=

Thanks!!  Cheesy

I enjoyed putting this information together. Needle felting as a craft/art is still relatively young. The needles that we use are designed for industrial non-woven fabric production and not specifically for our craft/art form. So it's interesting when I come upon a new type of needle and can see what it may have to offer the artist.
