New England Felting Supplies and Charity Van Der Meers Felting Course

The last part of my trip to the USA was just as wonderful as visiting my sister in South Carolina and the Vortex Healing Energy Course in New York. I travelled up from New York to Massachusetes on the Amtrax the day before the start of the course and went straight to Park Street B&B where I would be staying with 2 other felters.

La ultima parte de mi viaje a USA fue tan maravilloso como ir a Carolina del Sur a visitar a mi hermana.y realizar el curso de Vortex - energia sanadora en New York. De este lugar viaje en el tren a Massachusetes llegando el dia antes de tomar el curso de fieltro con Charity Van der Meer.

Charitys course was a 3 day course to make a Nuno Felted Coat, we worked hard from 9 til 5.30 for the 3 days but it was well worth it as you will see from my finished coat.

El curso que hice con Charity fue para confeccionar un tapado utilizando la tecnica del Fieltro Nuno. Trabajamos mucho los 3 dias pero los resultados fueron increibles!!!!!!!!

New England Felting Supplies was a fantastic place!!!. It is a felters paradise as you can buy there anything and everything you could ever need for your felting projects. Thanks Christine, Stacey and the rest of the ladies that helped us all during the course!!

New England Felting Supplies es un lugar donde los que hacen fieltro pueden encontrar todo lo que necesitan para cualquier projecto sea agujado, nuno o el fieltro comun. Se puede consiguir sedas, pañuelos de seda teñido en colores bellisimos, una multitud de distinctos tipos de vellon y mucho mas.

On the last day of the course we all wore our coats and took photos of our creations..... More photos coming in my next post and information about Charitys courses next year here in Buenos Aires and  maybe in Chile.

El ultimo dia del curso con Charity nos pusimos nuestros creaciones y nos sacamos fotos. En mi proximo web post van a encontrar mas fotos de mi tapado e importante informacion sobre los cursos que va a dar Charity el año que viene aqui en Buenos Aires y tal vez en Chile.
