Q&A with Jane Dunnewold

Jo-Mo asked:
Gorgeous! The colors are so rich. I've had my embellisher for a few months now and I'm amazed at all it can do, just love it. Enjoy!
Jane Dunnewold answered:
good for you. show us some samples!!!
Queenderby asked:
I too have a felting machine but afraid to use, any tips?
Jane Dunnewold answered:
Just jump in and have a few extra needles handy...I broke a few while I was getting the hang of how to move the cloth and my feet at the same time. It's a little like dancing!!
Starling425 asked:
I've never tried felting, but this project is so elegant. I didn't expect elegant.
Jane Dunnewold answered:
Yiu never know until you try it - we have to remember that companies who make equipment like the Embellsiher machine have a specific way of using it in mind but it doesn't mean that we, as artists, can't blow thier minds with new approaches to what they envisioned!!
fewofakind asked:
Wow, this is unbelievable. I can only hope to make pieces this beautiful. I make felted pieces for other artisans and decided to take this class to add dyeing to add to my collection in the hope of being able to sell some. I'm not sure I'd want to let a piece like this go though!
Jane Dunnewold answered:
When you make beautiful things it is good to find them new homes! It gives you more psychic space to create more!! and then the process repeats itself.
