An AWESOME event!

Ohhh I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Heather from Speckled Egg and Heidi from Birds of a Feather are hosting The Inspired Nest, a Silver Bella style creative retreat and gathering that coincides with the famous Brimfield Antique Show in May. There will be a day of sourcing the best vendors at the Brimfield Antique Show, a delicious (and well deserved) Welcome Dinner, a "charming" swap, a full day of amazing classes, luncheon, and vendor faire.... And in addition to that excitement...they've invited ME to teach a workshop for the event! I of course am honored! Heather and Heidi are each teaching a class too...all whimsical nest themed.

The sourcing trip will be great too...I'm looking forward to getting to know more Brimfield vendors and seeing what goodies they have. I swear half of the contents of my house is from Brimfield! :)

This is the cozy nest I'll be teaching everyone to make. The nest itself is needle felted wool and the base is a keepsake box covered in vintage paper. Pretty AND functional! :)

If you're even remotely in the New England area, please join us! I can't wait to meet everyone! :)

I wish I was closer. I just purchased an item from your etsy, and can't wait to get it. I want so badly to learn how to needle felt, but have no idea where to learn. Any suggestions. Also, may I post pics of my item I purchased on my blog when I receive it?? - Valarie
