Good Question!
I am new to the world of felting and I was hoping that I could make my debut with the next felt-along.
Does anyone have any suggestions?!

 Grin I'm very excited! Grin

To answer both of you, GraceOblivious and I are discussing if we were going to prompt/host any more new felt-alongs for the time being.
Mainly due to the waning interest over the last few felt-a-longs.

Thoughts/comments by any felters are welcome  Smiley

Hi Amy, sure appreciate your enthusiasm.  Anyone can initiate a felt a long.  Yes even a new to felt making person. 

Initially, because there were so few feltmakers here we collaborated on what to do for felt a longs trying to find something of interest to the majority to help boost participation. 

Over the past year and a half there have been a variety of needle felting and wet felting felt a longs focused on building skills and trying techniques.

while there are no longer groups working on similar projects, you can work through the past felt a longs and ask questions, add new comments as you work.  Past participants are really great about checking those threads when new comments arrive and providing help. 

Please feel welcome to try one of those, especially if a new felt a long does not get started soon.

I'm just now starting to get into felting, I've done beads and soaps so far, and not much else.

I'm thinking about going back to the beginning and going through the old feltalongs and it would be even more fun if others were doing it too?

We could start at the beginning?  Or just see if a couple of us could agree on one other than the first one to work on together?

That is a great idea.  Maybe some variation of the theme using the basic skill - such as - Bead and Ball Felt a Long - how many sizes, how many different things can be made with felt beads/balls, compare how various fibers felt - who prefers needle felting balls, who prefers wet felting balls.

Or take any of the others and expand or refocus them.  since you have done beads and soaps is there one of the other feltalongs you would like to try with company?
