About Marie Jahn...
I am a mum of 2 girls, now aged 10 and 12. Three summers ago my daughters and I went on a 3 hours felting course, well from that moment on, I became addicted to felt, I just loved working with all the lovely bright coloured wools! At the time I was working part time for a local Wine Imorters, I would leave work at 3:15 pick the children up and try to be the pefect mum, and then when both girls were in bed out would come all the felting wool and creations would be made normally into the wee early hours! A year ago now I was made redundant (big smile on my face!), with my redundancy package I brought a Studio (which my husband built in our garden) and a Labradoodle Pup, so now when the girls are at School I spend my day felting in the Studio and walking the dog (of course not at the same time!).
The wonderful bright colours of felting wool that are available, lliterally every colour of the rainbow, inspire me to create lovely bright coloured gifts such at tea/cafetiere cosies, corsages, felted sweets, bags, purses......., I like to think my felted creations are happy, bright and fun!
My best sellers have to be my brightly coloured tea and cafetiere cosies, every good tea pot & cafetiere plunger should not be without one!, I like to think they bright up a kitchen!
