The pursuit of knowledge and skill is a journey, never a destination. This page is dedicated to sharing elements of the journey that may be useful on your own. It also offers ways to source materials, learn more, and connect with my work firsthand. I will continue to add to this page as new resources arise.
Project kits from Erindale Tapestry Studio for needle felting, crochet, and knit projects can be found in two great places: via my Etsy Shop and the art and craft kits part of the farm’s e-store. If all you are looking for are kits and you need them shipped, Etsy may be the preferred way to go as they have a built-in shipping calculator. If you want to source additional supplies along with your kits or you’re picking up at our farm, use that route. I can definitely ship a farm store order to you, I’ll just be in touch about shipping costs after packing your order. The kits are excellent project starters and also make excellent gift for your fiber-loving family and friends!
NEW Tutorial permissions are now available via our farm’s e-store for download. These include a link to the video with password as well as a suggested materials list and image of the project. Have plenty of materials on hand and don’t need a kit? This allows you to learn how to make a project at your own pace. You can also use the links below to purchase materials separately.
Tools and supplies as well as project accessories from felting needles to sheepskin hat poms, shawl pins to Oxford punch needles also now have their own featured spots on the farm’s e-store. NEW for2021, strings of 10 glass beads used for felted critter eyes in all three colors I use in my kits and classes.
Wool roving from our sheep for felting or spinning is now available to order in over 30 different colors!
Wool yarns from our sheep, from fingering to aran, worsted to bulky is available in a wide array of natural and hand dyed colors.
Where Can I Find Erindale Tapestry Studio and Laura’s Art?
Laura’s Studio Yurt (located on the family’s historic farm east of Hayward, WI) is not typically open to the public, but you can make an appointment for a studio visit. [Currently, this offering is restricted due to COVID-19, so please see the virtual studio tour here]
Official Gallery: Farmstead Creamery & Cafe offers the widest array of Erindale Tapestry Studio art on display and for sale. Farmstead is open Tuesday-Sunday all year, and Laura is often there, so you can meet the artist. [Currently, due to COVID-19, there is no public access to Farmstead’s gallery space. You can still find Laura’s displayed work here]
Fiber Loft: Located in the upstairs of Farmstead Creamery, this is the headquarters for wool and roving from the farm’s sheep, supplies, inspiration, project starters, and more. This is also the home of Laura’s new Zoom teaching space. You can learn about that transformation by reading this post.
Duluth Folk School: With a special emphasis on needle felted critters and kits, Laura’s work can be found on consignment on the main floor. Laura also offers classes and concerts [on hold due to COVID-19, watch for updates] here seasonally, so keep a finger on their events calendar.
North House Folk School: With kits and fiber art works on consignment in the school shop (Yellow House) and an ever-changing litany of Zoom classes, Laura’s partnership with this landmark folk school in Grand Marais, MN is connecting with makers and creatives across the country and in Canada.
