Ray Cannon's Needle Felted Sculptures!
Thursday, May 5th
Come and see Ray Cannon's amazing needle felted pieces. This fun art show is this Thursday, May 5th from 6:00-8:00pm. Snacks will be served. Ray will be doing a demonstration on his techniques during the evening!
Last year Ray Cannon started coming into Cast Away for supplies to begin learning how to needle felt. Without knowing anything about the medium he quickly connected with this art form and found it similar to Scupley, a medium he'd used a few times before. Ray enjoys the felting medium for its molding ability without actually carving into the form. He soon began creating amazingly life-like, detailed animals.
His pieces are so captivating -- be sure to come see the sculptures and meet Ray Cannon.

These lovely ladies came all the way from Philadelphia to do a book signing and teach a fair isle beret class from their new book Vintage Modern Knits. These two ladies are just so sweet, creative and fun! Thanks for coming and sharing with all of us!!!

We are now carrying Miss Teapot's garlands -- fanciful crowns perfect for any fairy. Miss T makes all her crowns by hand, tenderly gathering tea dyed ribbons for the trains, lovingly felting little mushrooms with tiny hearts and recycling old sweaters to make flowers and leaves.
These adornments are truly special!
