"As a first time felter, Kathleen made me instantly comfortable with the idea that I could easily accomplish and conquer the [felting] techniques.  I really appreciated her explanations of the science behind the art form and loved the little history lessons.  The relaxed atmosphere and the small class size were perfect for me.  ... The peaceful country setting, the fiddle music, and the easy laughter made this easily one of the best classes I have taken."   - Amy Thurber
